  1. Disk Cleanup + SSD = unbootable

    I used to use Microsoft Disk Cleanup YEARS ago and it works no problem on a HDD Windows 7. Now I just ran Disk Cleanup (with default settings - which is to clear temp folder, clear recovery/rescue files, update files, etc. etc).... on my SSD C:\Windows 7 - I do still have the old Windows 7 on the D:\ HDD (which was cloned to C:\ using the Samsung 840EVO SSD clone tool CD. After reboot - Windows fails to start. It forever keeps on System Repair - reboot - System Repair - reboot - forever. It says lots of files are corrupted. I tried to do a recovery - but it says my recovery files have been deleted. I tried installing Windows 7 ontop of my existing Windows installation (Upgrade option) but it won't let me - saying Windows was previously installed via Windows itself... Someone please help! PS: I can't clone my HDD again since it's been so so so long. I just want to recover my SSD drive. PSS: actually, I think I deleted the Windows folder from the old HDD already - so no way booting up there. Microsoft Disk Cleanup options: Downloaded Program Files Temporary Internet Files Game Statistics Files Recycle Bin Service Pack Backup Files System error memory dump files Temporary files Thumbnails Per user queued Windows Error Reporting System queued Windows Error Reporting ---- so how can this corrupted my Windows on SSD?
  2. My PC originally came with a normal SATA HD with Windows 7 installed. Then I got an SSD and did a fresh installation of Windows 7 on the SSD. The SSD is labeled C: while SATA HD is D:\ Now I am trying to delete the SATA's folders: Program Files\ Program Files (x86)\ ProgramData\ Windows\ but it won't let me. I've tried Unlocker program, and even force delete command-prompt in Adminstrator-mode. I even booted up in SAFE-MODE and it still says "Access Denied". I've compared the C:\ with the corresponding D:\ folders and noted that the files already exist in C:\... BUT Program Files\ is newer on C:\ WHILST the other 3 folders, D:\ seems newer. If Windows 7 still uses folders/files from SATA D:\ (even though I did a fresh installation in C:\..... how can I transfer them to C:\ and get them deleted from D:? PS: I could just take the SATA D:\ out and see what happens
  3. I own a NAS D-Link DNS-320 running fun_plug 0.7 & transmissionBT. I just bought a Transcend 2.5 inch 2TB USB HDD which is preformatted to NTFS. Just wondering whether my NAS(linux) can write to my USB HDD for a reliable storage for transmissionBT. Otherwise, if writing to NTFS is unstable in linux, how should I format my USB HDD. I know I could format as FAT32... but FAT32 has a 4GB file size limit. Is it possible to format USB HDD as ext3 (linux file system)... and still compatible/read/write by Windows XP/7/8?
  4. Thanks so much. It's good to see that this is well known common problem and has been resolved
  5. What? USB drivers??? Sure we don't need IDE/ATA drivers?
  6. This is a bit old hat but I can't figure out how to solve this. I get blue-screen-of-death during Windows XP install/setup. ... problem has been detected and Windows ...Technical information:STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D6528, 0xC0000034, ....etcDell Dimension 8400 It has IDE HDD 10GB Maxtor. I am aware there's the F6 option of installing SATA drivers. I've tried this and also without. In BIOS, settings is ATA mode. The CD-drive isn't working, so am booting using WinSetupFromUSB ... made up of: - BartPE - Windows XP setup - PartedMagic PartedMagic boots up perfectly fine. It's just BartPE & Windows XP setup gives me BSOD. Anyone got any bright ideas?
  7. HELP: how to access BartPE in grub?

    You mean you know ONLY 3 of them? However you are still not providing enough info, happy you solved the issue anyway (one way or the other). jaclaz I do know there's other ways... I just realised why we are both confused from the start. I've been using WinSetupFromUSB tool which I got from: http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/ The help in the program/app directs me to this forums.. so hence i thought this forums was all about WinSetupFromUSB... but after looking at the forums title... it's not :S
  8. HELP: how to access BartPE in grub?

    Yes sorry. You know there's 3 different options for formatting USB stick? I liked the RMPrepUSB way (because it looked better than Bootice.... and FBinstTool didn't exist before). RMPrepUSB step 5 is where I put the path to BartPE... this was a BartPE folder used before BartPE creates the ISO. Now I don't use RMPrepUSB anyway. I use FBinstTool since it seems easier. I mount a BartPE ISO and specify the path in the "UBCD4Win/Win/WinBuilder/Windows FLPC setup/BartPE" box. That works better now and I get the boot menu option and can boot into it. Now I run into bigger problems (will create a new thread for that).
  9. QUERY: restore HDD image, boot device not found

    I tried fixmbr, fixboot, bootcfg none of them worked. Maybe it was a bad backup image.....
  10. I restored a HDD image (using DriveXML), and now it says "cannot find boot device" or something similar. What can I do to get C:\ booting again?
  11. For my 8GB USB, I created BartPE & PartedMagic together. However, when it boots up, I only get grub showing me PartedMagic. How do we access BartPE?
  12. Understood. It's okay, I think I can set it to MAX partition size now with no problems.
  13. I've got a Kingston 8GB USB. I was having problems getting BartPE, Windows XP setup & PartedMagic put all in one. So I created a smaller NTFS partition using RMPrepUSB... 2.1GB (enough for the 3 ISOs). Created my combo successfully, and it boots up too. Now I want to create partition with the unallocated 5GB... but I can't seem to in Windows 7/8? It won't let me create partition?
  14. Currently it's working. I uninstalled and installed it on the HDD (D:\) rather than SDD (C:\). It successfully loaded a workspace/project. Sometimes it crashes with devncb.pkg (I recognise NCB means classview information). I usually delete the *.ncb so it generates a clean one. Later sometimes is crashes with the devdbg.pkg violation again. I decided to install Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows 7. Now Visual C 6 seems to be more stable. Fingers crossed it will be like this for a very very long time. Thanks for your link. It made me install Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows 7. native = installed as a host OS on machine... rather than guest OS in a VM lol OEM pre-installed? did I write that??? x64 means 64-bit... whereas x86 means 8086 intel instruction set architecture... bit misleading....
  15. I guess it's kinda similar. How do I generate a DMP?
