Maybe Tricky will PM you "some lurve" in the form of a handy linky if he has it to hand. The files seem to have been "good 'uns" and should sort you out.

Hi,

Im using the recovery program at the mo and doing the full destructive reinstall and the blue bar seems to be just staying about a quarter in on Copying files. The progress bar is still going away, but its been going for about 20 mins now.

Anyone else experience this?

EDIT:

Nevermind, its sprung back into life now and seems to be doing the installation.

Note to self, stop being impatient.

Note to others, it hung for about 15 - 20 mins so just keep waiting!

EDIT 2:

All sorted, thanks for the quick efficient help people!
Everything works great <_<

Jim

Assuming all's ok now...?

If not, let me know -- I have what you need ;)


Hi
I just found this forum while searching for a flash stick Image to get my new Advent 4211c back up and running. It now refuses to boot after trying several times to backup the system as per The Techguys software. I followed the instructions to the letter and tried several 2-4 gig sticks for the backup. Each one was detected and when I clicked NEXT. the error re-occurred and rebooted the system back to windows
Now the boot up reports file: \ Boot\BCD status : 0xc0000034 an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

I would try to re-install windows xp from a CD if only I had a USB CD Rom drive. Could I get a copy of your CD image please?.

Sincerely Mike.

EDITED

Thanks to Mike MWRIGHT's help I have my 4211c back up and running:

I eventually worked out how to image a 4gig stick with the recovery image and although I mistrusted the root files on it as not DOS in my book. They simply booted up to a destructive replacement of the system and now I will try to backup the system again as per the Techguys software. Here's hoping it goes ok, but thanks again for your help Mike!

Mike.

hi,

did you manage to get the XP recovery disk onto a USB pen drive ? - if so any chance you could point me in a similar direction.

best regards,
Colin
