Recently (couple days ago) i installed a new video card (geforce 260),
after the hardware change I couldnt boot into Vista.
Here is a thread I originally created regarding that topic.
A member in this forum, Barman58, started to assist me with my problem.
I have downloaded Vista Boot Pro 3.3, EasyBCD and tried to use the
start up repair from my Vista DVD and still I am getting boot problems.
Im currently running Vista Home Premium 64
Ive used EasyBCD and have tried all three scenarios that are on their
website. The last scenario I cannot get to work however. THe program
says that Vista already has a boot files so EasyBCD will not create one.
I was a little confused with the "boot drive" and the "vista drive"
(wouldnt they be the same)?
Also when using the Vista CD; when i try to use the "start up repair"
tool, it begins to work but then asks if ive added any removable
hardware recently, like a camera. If so, remove it and restart. I do
NOT have anything connected like that, though I DO have a flash drive
that I was using for Readyboost.....
Sorry if this post goes in many directions, Ive just tried all the
options I can find on forums, net, etc.
What I would like to do is be able to restore the bootloader from the
Vista DVD, as it would be the truest form of "fresh install".
Ive tried using the CMD prompt on the DVD but I still get errors with
that; for example the command line
C:\boot\bootsect.exe/nt60 all /force always kicks back and says "path
Any help would be greatly appreciated. As of right now I can get into
vista by using the DVD I just place it in the tray and when my HDD fails
to boot, it asks for the DVD, I hit enter and wait until my system
boots. Its very annoying.
Here is the Debug log of WBM from EasyBCD if it helps;
