Guest MikeHardy Posted February 16, 2007 Share Posted February 16, 2007 Yes I know, that guy again. After I got back on the air I figured I'd best do the prerequisites before running DAF again. D;L'd the memory checker and HD checker. Ran both. Mem was fine (need to run more to get to 5x) and HD passed w/ no problems. Then ran the Windows \tools\disk checker\fix problems\check unused area. When I came home from shopping had a blue screen of death. "Can't find SAM hive", then later, "can't find necessary DLL files" (this several times). Booted the install CD, dropped to REPAIR command line. Dir of root showed expected directories. Dir of \windows - "access denied". ACCESS DENIED ? I don't think so! But I've been wrong before. Any hints ? That was Saturday only hours after fixing my problem w/ misplaced users and copying over SAM and SECURITY hives. Took a restore point too. Now nada. Took it to the PC hospital today, I have zero experience recovering data from HD or diagnosing peculiar windows boot problems. Any help appreciated. thanks again.
