This is the error I get when booting. I am running a dual boot XP/Vista system with XP on C and Vista on E (although Vista thinks it's on F). This did work at one time, it just started doing this today.

The fix listed below, and on all the search engines I have searched does not work, I still have the error.

Does anyone know an actual fix that works, other than installing a real operating system?

Thanks

"Windows did not start correctly. A recent hardware or software change might
be the cause.

If you have aWindows installation disc, insert the disc and restart your
computer. Click system recovery options, and then choose a recovery tool.
(Startup Repair, available in some versions of Windows, can automaitcally
diagnose and fix startup problems.)

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer
manufacturer for assistance.

I have also tried unplugging all USB devices with the same result.

So here's the problem. I have a Sata drive which is disk 1 and an IDE drive which is disk 0, and Vista in it's ultimate wisdom, thinks disk 0 is the boot drive, unfortunately it is drive F on my system and is not even an active boot partition. The Sata drive has my C drive and is the boot/system partition.

So how do I get Vista to see drive 1 as and the C drive and the boot partition???????

A new OS and the same old ridiculous problems.

THX

Fixed. For those of you that may have the same issue. I had to disable my primary IDE in BIOS so Vista wouldn't see it and then run the repair option from the Vista CD. This put the boot files on the C: drive where they should have been in the first place. I then re-enabled my IDE drive and all is fine.

Now if I could get Slackware installed on a my Sata drive I'd even be happier.
