RE: reboot loop on crcdisk.sys after bios upgrade
I had a simialr problem. Here is what I did.
If your BIOS has a option to support 'legacy USB' disable it. Sometimes the
OS and the BIOS trying to control the same thing results in problems.
My MB Intel L440GX has UDB on the MB and I had nothing connected to it when
I got stuck in the loop and I do ot ave the legacy USB option in my BIOS
setup program. By the way this happened to me on a clean install of Vista
I reasoned that if crcdisk was having a problem and I had no USB disks
attached to the system then crcdisk might not know what to do if it does not
encounter a disk. I plugged a seagate pocket USB drive into the box and
started the install over again.....viola everything worked. I can remove the
device reboot without it and no problems.
Hope this helps
