Beta 2 x64 setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've recently received Beta 2 and so as not to mess with my XP Pro install, I have attepted to install X64 on my second Physical HD where I have/had XP Pro 64 loaded for testing.   After the first installation failure, I tried to load my standard XP Pro from the first Physical HD all to no avail. I have attempted to use the recovery tools and get no further than the Boot selection screen.   The Vista 64 cannot repair the boot , and neither can Vista 32.   The message indicates a CorruptBootSectorCode.

  • Have you tried the Windows XP CD's repair facility?

  • I have, however I have replaced the boot.ini using a bootable floppy and also replaced NTdetect.com and ntldr, and have access to my system again.   I'm getting a new system soon and may wait off loading it till I get the new system.  Nothing to loose on it.  I may try on a smaller HD temp replacement of my main.
