I can't make the flight either - my computer refuses to start since this morning, it gives me the dreadful blue screen with a notice of a registry error, and it enters an endless loop.

I tried to resume past configurations, start in basic mode, even made an attempt to boot from the Windows cd to recover or re-install it, but no way.

Tomorrow I'll bring the rig to the assistance, hoping the problem isn't a burnt hd Shocked

Sorry to hear that Marco! That sounds like the same issue I faced last week and found the boot record was wiped clean and the partition is sat on was gone too. Took a boot program to reinstall the partition to write the boot record to.

Anyway, I made the flight today after all...:D

Hey guys, had a blast on the Sunday flight, always a great time. For those who haven't joined in, missing out for sure.

Dusted off the ol' camera and grabbed a few shots for the crowd - I did go back and download those packages Bushy - saved me a lot of time. I thought the 17 skins I had were a lot - 70+?? Wow.

Nice pics, Hunt! Cool


Jerry, I'm almost sure I got the partition wiped out too - at the assistance, they told me it's something that's happening more and more frequently, but I'm developing a theory of my own, following a rather identical issue I had last Xmas - which I solved in a truly unexpected way Shocked

Now, I'm collecting informations to endorse my opinion, and I need you to tell me if:

1) you had any Linux partition on the "damaged" hd;
2) you recently made use of USB removable storage devices, phisical or virtual, like pen drives, or the virtual hd installed by some digital cameras when you connect them to the 'puter.

Last, which partition software do you use, and, more important, is it free? Mr. Green
Thank you Wink

Reading this it seems more than coincidence that I seem to suffer from the same issue as well.

At the moment trying to re-install windhose, problem is that it doesn't want to see my HD's ..... Confused

We'll keep tinkering on, solution shall be somewhere hidden . Laughing

As soon as I manage to get it up and running I'll be back .......... alltough don't dare to say when that will be Confused

Thanks for the pics Hunt!! Nice Plane!

Marco, yes, I had a Linux partition on the drive as I use different Linux OS' to check out the progress of that OS from time to time as new releases come out.

I didn't or don't use any USB devices for booting or keeping images. The program I used to fix it, I'll have to email or send you a link to as I can't remember the name and need to check the CD to see what the program is called. Wink

Fled, that was also an issue I had and the boot procedure I used fixed it. Let me get home after work today and work out the procedure and program I used and I'll post it up on the Hardware forum...

Thanks for the feedback Smile

An option I've been addressed to is that it's a sort of Trojan horse attacking the MBR - which could be true; but then how it happened to my son, whose puter has never been connected to the Internet? Neutral

Another hint I got is that it seems the bigger the HD, the easier for it to miss the MBR, so I've been told to replace mine with another no bigger than 80 Gigs... but mine is already 80 Gigs! And my son's is only 8 (eight) Gigs Shocked

At this point, I argue that all these different rigs with different components have just one thing in common, which is Windows XP; a Linux partition can help to recover apparently lost data into the Win partition, cause as far as I know Win is transparent to Linux, moreover, Linux keeps the boot loader in a different location of the hd than the 0 sector, so it's harder to be infected or damaged.

The question about the usb pen-drives comes from what I noticed being a strange coincidence: every time my sons attach theirs to my rig, I seem to begin experiencing some sort of troubles; every time you attach a removable USB drive, XP re-assignes the letters (C-D-E....) without a re-boot; the same applies when virtual storage space is created by peripherals like digital cameras and the like. Now, Mr. Gates' OSs are so stricly bound to this C: drive... Confused

Well, I'll report about future developments.

Marco
