    Another crcdisk.sys error


    Hello,

    I've been searching endlessly for help with this one.

    Vista x64 up and running fine for a few weeks - had a sudden power outage.

    Now cannot boot into windows - was getting hungup at the crcdisk.sys during attempts to get into safe mode.

    I have tried:

    1: Running the 'repair' option from my windows CD

    Results: Now when it gets to where the 'login' screen should be, i get a blank 'error window' with no text. If i close it it pops up again. (Same thing happens in safe mode).

    (It actually booted into windows the first time after running 'repair' - except there was no text anywhere - not on the icons, in the start menu, nada. Couldn't shut down properly, had to hard reset.)

    Next I tried running chkdsk /f from the boot CD - still the same.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Another crcdisk.sys error


    Ok - I tried that with the exact same results:

    When I get to where the login screen should be (after the logo and the green bars animation), whether in safe mode or normal, I get a completely blank error box that pops up - no text or anything. If I click the 'x' to close it, it just pops back up again, nothing else happens...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a million,

    Jonathan

    Have a look at some of these post,

    Vista error on boot; CRCDISK.SYS error. - Parallels Forums

    From what I have seen crcdisk.sys is the last file to load in safe mode.
    There has not been much help online so I would suggest backing up what you can and doing a reinstall.

    Is this your only HD? If you have another create a bootable disk from that and then you can recover your data from the damaged vista install.

    Roy - thanks for your help.

    I ended up doing a re-install. Of course, my version of vista is an upgrade, so I had to reinstall XP and re-upgrade (what a nightmare). I'm in the middle of two major projects so of course things pile up.

    Oh well...

    Take care.
