Hello, I realize I am a new member , and with hopeful resolution of this problem , plan to be a much more active member ,, but i have been tryin to fix this for a long time and any help would be greatly appriciated.
When I start Laptop It gives me error invalid boot.ini . When i boot from cd to go to recovery console i get the responses from these commands:
map : ? 28608mb \device\harddisk0\partiton1
bootcfg /add -- failed to succesfully scan for windows installations use chkdsk to scan for errors
bootcfg /list -- there are no boot entries to display
boot/rebuild--same as bootcfg/add
chkdsk /r /f --parameter not valid
fixboot --target partition is the file system on the startup partition is unkown. fixboot cannot open the partition.
When i start safe mode or normal i either get bsod or windows loading bar then bsod
I have a
Dell Inspiron 1000
Bios : A08
Cpu : 2200 mhz
HDD: 30G Toshiba MK3021gas-(PM)
Sys Mem : 256mb@266MHZ
I have tried everything and since inspiron 1000 has no floppy i dont know what else to do. I hope it has something to do with drive letter not being recognized. Anyhelp is greatly appriciated.
