My nb is dead.
First Screen after starting says yaddayadda
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
And asks for the Windows installation disc to "repair my computer". It doesn´t go further than that.
Unfortunatley the DVD drive doesn´t it´s duty
. Neither with a borrowed Vista-DVD (untouched) nor with the ubcd.
Fortunatley the USB-Port works and I have an ubcd-usb boot stick that does the same probably.
I would now like to get the dvd going or repair the problem in the first place.
I have tried Testdisk and with it fixing the mbr and the other thingie in the same menue but to no avail. Seemed to be all in order.
How the issue arose: I was gayly defragging
my main boot partition with some qewl fancy program when power went off and (the battery is dead) my nb went black. so. now dvd works not anymore (booting from there neither; F8 and bios no good). I am quite happy that I got the usb ubcd
running. I also tried to install atapi drivers and the like, but it didn´t seem to help. Maybe I did sth wrong. Somehow I did get a new drive when starting the gui version of 5.1.1 or in contrast to the freedosmode; A:\ then appeared. But it isn´t the DVD. I am rather sure about that, though not entirely.
There´s 4 Drives now: A(memdisk fake writable; Bin/ETC/Level0...), C(Autorun/License...) ,Q(ETC/Main...) and T(readonly; Custom/Dosapps...)
No Vista DVD there?.
I hope you can help me. Either to mount the dvd or to get the partitions in line. It is actually kinda fun to do this, I never realy got that far with a pc problem; already thanx @ ubcd for giving me hope in this bitter moment.
