Windows Vista Error Invalid Partition Table
Michael says: 7 years ago Hi, I just got the blue screen of death this morning when I tried booting my windows xp sp3 pc. Right now, I'm using Win 7 OS. Power off, I swapped the jumper, making it master, and booted the Xubuntu CD. Sorry to be a pain but can you remind me how do it? have a peek at this web-site
ryansmithxvx says: 7 years ago after running this repair, i'm encountering a 2-fold problem: 1 - when I boot from the CD and follow all of those instructions, it tells me That was great. Well to be fair i havent used a DVD drive once lol. Good luck.
I have read through a ton of forums and got bits and pieces of info, such as the boot might be corrupted and to use the Vista DVD, which don't help. boyan selena-jovanovich says: 5 years ago I have two HDD on my system.

- I booted from the XP CD as described above and did fixmbr only.
- Now, the Windows XP recovery console doesn't even recognize the drive.
- If I just do a re-install from the CD, I'll lose everything on my computer.
- I tried the recovery console thingy but it comes up with "no hard drive found" so that hoops me big time.
- First, restart your computer with the Windows XP setup disk in the CD drive.
- I managed once to penetrate this first small partition (about 100 meg) and received a message that the partition was not recognized.
- Press Enter to run the file and install the BIOS . 4.
- and will only be there with the usb attached', Could you explain again lol?!
- If this is not successful, it's likely that the disk is not recoverable and you will have to format the disk and reinstall the operating system.

EasyRE will automatically find and fix many problems, and can also be used to solve this problem with the directions below. After starting a partitioning program (maybe gParted, it didn't say) I told it to make /, swap, and /home partitions on the new drive, then install Linux.
I've realized some computers like HP (windows vista/7) give the option to create a recovery disk since they don't provide you with OS disc and plus you can create only one Check This Out If this solution doesn't work, this could mean that your hard drive may have failed, or Windows may just be too far gone. I don't mind having to do a re-install, if needed, but I do have about 4 gig of data not backed up. Any help is most welcome.
Well, after it got to the NVRAM, it went to a black screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left of the screen and that is where it stayed. P.S.

The screen will either have the logo of the computer manufacturer (such as Dell) or be black with white letters and many technical details.Step 4Press and hold the "F8" key as
Can I use the repair to move the mbr to my primary hard drive now without losing all the programs ive installed and/or having to reinstall the os + formating?
Dimitar says: 4 years ago I had windows XP, removed ubuntu partition which gave me this error. When there is not a password set for "Administrator" and someone is using a different account this does not work. Or it was formatted with windows 7 with C drive and with another HD connected and now its disconnected so it won't boot because the MBR is on the other drive I was thinking maybe it just corrupted the boot sector and this will fix it.
Press Enter and then type in the Administrator password. 5. XP will be master again with its own native MBR, nothing to patch. *I have read that some computer makers put a hidden partition before the system one, I forget why, Does windows 2k have the same fixboot / fixmbr capability? have a peek here Thanks dienelle says: 6 years ago For Vicki.
I have the following problem: I screwed up my MBR and after that I tried to fix it with vista cd and Start Up repair. If I just do a re-install from the CD, I’ll lose everything on my computer. EasyRE is currently available for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 and can be downloaded and created on any PC. If I try to do the complete system restore, it says there isn’t a driver to repair at all.
Wait for the BIOS status screen to appear. Windows 2000 has diskprobe, still not accessible.
