Hey, Natalia! It has been a while, but I'm glad to hear that you have your system back in shape. Since they backed up your files, I hope that means that you got all of your important data recovered as well. I always appreciate hearing back from folks that we help, no matter how long the delay. Thank you.
(Solved) - System recovery options-HELP!!(49 posts)
Hey Scott - My Laptop had a similar problem that of Natalia! And i had been trying to google it and find various solutions! Came across your post and it worked wonders for me! I followed the dskchk procedure and followed the steps all through..and here it is, i can finally see my windows vista back in shape!
Thank you sooooo much..you are simply awesome!
ScottW: YOU ARE THE MAN!!!
I found this forum doing a Google search because I, too, had this problem. I followed the instructions you gave Natalia to the letter and in an hour and half I went from a non-booting Vista laptop to back to business as usual.
Thank you so much for helping her and the rest of us that have experienced this issue with your posts.
Hi Scott...I was on google looking for a solution to the problem above. I have followed all of your instruction as far as comand prompt and it is telling me no problem found. I have ran it 2 more times just to make sure and its telling me everything is ok in comand prompt. So i restarted it and it asked me if I want to launch startup repair (recommended) or Start windows normally. I choose to start it normally and it just goes back to the previous options so I picked launch startup repair. It then runs startup repair but it cant fix the problem. It then asks if i went to send an error report or not. If i click yes it tells me it can not. I then have to option to hit finish which will turn off the computer or cancel which will restart it or view advanced options for system recovery and support. I pick advanced option and it asked me keyboard layout so i choose US then it goes to a screen that says "to access recovery options, log on as local user. So i type in my password. It then takes me to the options finally. Please please help. :'(
Hi vampirefarie18 and welcome to HTG. Could you start a new topic, this one has expired. You will get a better response from the forum. Also could you state make, model and OS Thanks,
I honestly have no words to thank you Scott. your tips are very valuable.
I suggest you do a tutorial and publish on the intenet and send it to microsoft! Seriously!
I'll pass on your tips! Thank you!
Scott, if you're still checking this thread, I could use your help. I tried to go through your steps to fix my hard drive, but my situation is a little different. For starters, I never even got to the window's recovery screen while the drive was inside my laptop. Fortunately, I have a 2.5" SATA external drive case that I put my internal hard drive into, and have been trying to boot windows from 2 usb ports (because the usb cord that came with the drive case has 1 end with 2 male usb connections, and the other end has 1 usb connection). When running chkdsk /F f:, it came up ok, then I ran chksk /F e: and it is telling me that the disk type is RAW. If you have any suggestions, I'd appreciate the help.
