Vista Business Corrupt wdf01000.sys file
Running a Dell Inspiron 6000 upgraded from XP Pro 3 months ago to Vista
Business (upgrade version). All was working fine until yesterday.
Did a normal shutdown and it crashed at windows boot manager:
"windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or
I tried running automated recovery from boot DVD over six time and I still
get the same msg.
I also booted to CMD and fond the file and deleted it. It boots OK after
this, but then I cant use the keyborad or mouse!!
I ran auto recover again, and I back to square one. same boot error.
Microsoft wants $59.00 to fix THEIR PROBLEM!!!
I am ready to ROLL BACK TO XP !!! If I don't get this fixed!!
