URGENT!! Booting Issues

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?SmFtZXM=?=, Dec 19, 2005.

  1. Ok lost everything ~(temporariliy i hope) thats where you come in!!

    I was running xp 64 as a dual boot operation on a second raid array d:
    the first drive array C: ran xp pro as a standard install.

    The brilliant plan was for format c: and gain a new array (this time mirror
    not stripe for security) and place all my data there. First moved all my
    data to the win 64 drive. did a format. Undid the array. Re made a new
    mirror array on th drive formerly c and the boot drive. All went well.
    Except of course i cannot now boot the machine as the boot sector on c is
    gone as is the files that manage the dual boot options. I can i guess
    re-install all of c again as a new win xp setup and go through the repeat of
    the same. But is there an easier way?

    Bios is trying the correct drive for boot info but its not there

    PLease help!!!

  2. Hello James,
    Not sure of the configuration, or exactly what you did to the system.
    I infer that the Windows X64 installation is still on the drive that it was
    originally.
    You may want to try these steps.
    Boot to the Windows X64 Cd and choose the repair option. ( Recovery Console
    option)

    Run fixboot ( The generates the boot sector). Make sure you are on the C
    drive when you run this.
    I don't think you need to run fixMBR to redo the Master Boot Record.
    Then run bootcfg /rebuild. This creates the boot.ini file. ( Scans all the
    drives for Windows Installations, prompts for entries.
    Then copy over NTLDR and Ntdetect.com to the root of C.
    Reboot.
    Thanks,
