    crcdisk.sys error

    I have been reading some of the threads listing many Toshiba owners with the
    same problem, and one or two with desktops with same issues. I personally
    have a home grown P4 3.0GHz HT LGA775 64bit Processor, Dual Channel 1GB DDR
    3200, MSI NeoForce Chipset Motherboard, 19.1 GB IDE HD, and a 80GB SATA HD.
    And I am getting the same issue with it just not plain loading, or if your in
    safe mode it stops after crcdisk.sys.

    In previous builds I have had no issues installing and running Vista from an
    ISO on my XP Profession hard drive (SATA) onto my seconday hard drive (IDE).
    I have heard others mention they have SATA drives so I am wondering if that
    could be an issue. The way my mother board BIOS is setup it only recognizes
    one SATA Channel and one PATA Channel, or 2 PATA Channels. I am thinking if I
    change it to only looking at the PATA Channels it would cancel out the
    possibility of it being a SATA issue.

    If anyone has figured out what is going on please post up!

    RE: crcdisk.sys error

    Quick update, I turned my BIOS settings to PATA Channels only (my one IDE HD
    and my CD-RW and CD-ROM drives) and tried to load Vista. What ended up
    happening was a whole new error (no dual boot screen as I suspected). It was
    telling me NTLDR wasn't there. Now having essential bootfiles missing brings
    up a whole new issue.
