To sum it up, you need to put the hard drive into another computer as a slave or hook it up externally with one of those USB enclosures if you don't have space for a second hard drive. (or use the UBCD4WIN!!) Then open up C:\hp\bin\ConfigCheck\cfgchk.bat with notepad and modify the section that checks to see if the hard drive is tattoo'd to have it not bother checking at all. (although the hard drive will be running as slave so replace the C:\ with whatever drive letter Windows assigns it) The line to remove is: "python c:\hp\bin\ConfigCheck\run.py". Remove this one line and the problem is completely gone.
You could also boot to say Parted Magic which is included in UBCD5.0B12 and navigate to the file shown "C:\hp\bin\ConfigCheck\cfgchk.bat" using PCMan or other file manager or using a terminal and edit the file as stated.
I don't use the Linux tools ofter so Icecube or one of the other Linux guys may chime in with some advice or corrections.. This should get you started in the right direction though..
Hope it helps.. I'll be away later today and will not be back till late so I'll check back when I get home and see how it works out, post back with results please so others know how it comes out as well..
I'm sorry, I really don't understand. This is honestly my first time of ever having to work w/ this stuff.
Is PCMan on a seperate disk? Or parted magic?
If not, how would I go about getting to these?
Thanks for your response though.
