I was not overly surprised to get the initial error, but I haven't been
able to fix it, which is driving me crazy!
On an XP machine, you just run a repair install & all works like gravy
(I took my old mobo/proc to my husbands machine & had him fully back up
& running in a matter of hours. I've been fighting mine for days now.)
I tried booting to the CD & letting it attempt to repair itself ... no
I tried following the steps in this article & rebuiling the BCD -- it
rebuilt & now finds a windows install where it didn't prior ... but only
in the bootrec commands & still won't boot.
I decided that I might as well see if there was a repair option once I
started an install (like with XP) ... I get as far as entering my prod
key & then it tells me that it cannot open d:\sources\install.wim (sorry
if that message is not exact ... I'm in the middle of letting it try
another repair right now)
(PS ... I have also disabled all SATA on the mobo as well as run a
CHKDSK /F I only have a single hdd & a single DVD rom drive hooked up
Thanks in advance!
