Can't choose partition in ophcrack

When I run Vista ophcrack, it gets to the point below and I can't get past this..
Choose a partition:

0. /mnt/sda2/Windows/System32/config

1. /mnt/sda3/Windows/System32/config


I've typed in many options like the 0. and 1. and the paths, c:\users, etc.. and nothing works after. Whatever I press it then asks if I want to restart the computer. If I say yes, the same thing happens, if I say no, it goes into another mode, of which I can't get the password. Any ideas?
Thanks!
Billy

Driver for WPC300N under Windows 7


The only drivers for this device are for Xp and Vista. Download the appropriate bit version (32bit or 64bit) for Vista to your computer, right click on the exe installer and go to properties. Go to compatibility mode, in the drop down menu choose Vista (64 bit or 32 bit which ever version of Windows 7 you're running) and check the "run as administrator" box. Apply the changes and hit the Okay button. Then click on the exe and let it run. If that doesn't work, use 7zip (it's free) and unpack the exe file into a folder. Go to control panel device manager find the wireless card in the "others" section it should have a yellow question mark next to it. Right click that or click once and hit the properties button, go to driver, and choose update driver. A window will pop up that asks if you want to check automatically or do it manually. Choose manually and point the new window to where you unzipped the exe, hit okay and let it "search" it should find the drivers and install them. A note: vista drivers have issues running in windows 7. The card itself is old and outdated and I'd suggest getting a different one. You can find the driver at the link below.

How to disable the Windows XP Splash Screen / logo at startup ?
To disable the Windows XP splash screen (logo) at startup, and to see the list of drivers loading at startup, follow these steps:
Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
Click the Boot.ini tab
Under Operating Systems section, select the appropriate entry and then enable the /SOS switch in the Boot Options section below
Click OK and close MSCONFIG utility.
The corresponding entry in the Boot.ini file is automatically added. Example given below:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
becomes
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /sos
The /sos parameter displays the names of the drivers as they load during the boot process. Use when startup fails (while loading drivers) to determine which driver is failing to load. See Boot Parameter Reference for more information.
Also see /noguiboot parameter, which can also disable the splash screen.

Hi all, I'm having a problem with my Lenovo G550 with one recovery key system. I tried to install Linux but i did it wrong and now I can't start Windows. When I put the recovery disc in to my laptop and...


hi if you are using windows vista/7 recovery disk to reinstall OS, then while choosing drive there must be advance option below it..choose it and then delete all the drives and then create new partitions from all the unallocated space..and then choose the drive from newly created partition to reinstall OS..

to backup all imp. data before doing so use UBUNTU LIVE CD..then do the clean install of vista/7

if the above trick doesnt work then download the GPARTED LIVE CD to repartition your HD..
use GPARTED live to boot.
choose the HDD
delete all the parition
create new partition (NTFS)
hit APPLY
shutdown GPARTED LIVE.
install windows vista/7 thorgh reinstall DVD.

The notepad boot.ini file looks like this one

http://lh4.ggpht.com/ciprahkapa/RwYQCqUnrQI/AAAAAAAAAIg/q9E-gZ6W_L8/change%5B3%5D.jpg

Your default operating system is:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

as shown in:

default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS

or other operating system like Windows Vista

You have to delete this second line from multi..... to the end of the line that contain a second boot of your windows

My computer is not creating Restore Points... yes it's turned on... yes I know how to do a manual... but it disappears when the next Restore Point is created... can you help?


Creating a System Restore point using a shortcut For a more elegant way to create a System Restore point using Script in Windows Vista, check out our article Create System Restore Points Quickly using Script in Windows Vista and Windows XP.
Alternately, you may use the method below:
Copy the contents below to a Notepad document, and save it to a file name with .vbs extension (Example: createrp.vbs) and close Notepad.
set SRP = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore")
CSRP = SRP.createrestorepoint ("Created a Restore Point now", 0, 100)
If CSRP <> 0 then
Msgbox "Error " & CSRP & ": Unable to create System Restore point"
End if
Right-click on the Desktop and select New - Shortcut
Create a shortcut with the following target:
wscript.exe c:\scripts\createrp.vbs
Note: The above assumes that the createrp.vbs script is present in the c:\scripts folder. If that's not the case, change the Path accordingly.
Name the shortcut file name as Create Restore Point
Running the script To create a System Restore point, run the script with elevated mode. To do so, right-click on the newly created shortcut (Create Restore Point.lnk) and choose Run as administrator. When you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. A System Restore point will automatically be created.

try this... boot to the original windows vista disc, DO NOT click on install now, there should be an option to repair you computer at the bottom of the screen. click on that, choose language and keyboard. choose startup repair.

if you've already tried that, ran a custom test on the hdd. first run the initial diags, press and hold FN while you turn on the computer, you should get a message diagnostic boot selected, release the FN key, wait for the result. if you don't get an error message continue the test, until it goes to a point if you like to continue the remaining memory test. choose NO, then press any, then choose test system, then choose CUSTOM TEST, select the HARD DRIVE at the bottom of the list, wait for the result for possible faulty hdd. hit me back on the results.

Dual Boot problem in Windows XP & VISTA


Don't try to edit the xp boot.ini or the vista bootloader. It only leads to other problems and headaches.
Try this first: Take note as to which drive has vista on it, put your vista installation cd in the drive and let it boot to the "installation window", then choose "repair", then "startup repair." Make sure you choose the drive that already has vista on it. Let that run and when it re-boots you should then be given a choice to boot to vista or "other windows".
There is also a (free) program called EasyBCD. Download that, read the directions and have at it.
If none of that works, you'll have to do a clean install. Install XP on one drive first, then Vista on the second drive in that order. The Vista bootloader will pick up the XP. However, XP is NOT forward compatible and will not recognize the Vista bootloader. Make sure that you don't have any flashdrives or media cards plugged in before doing the install.
Another approach would be to shrink the Vista volume, creat a new partition, then install Linux Ubuntu that partition. Linux will detect all of the OS's and create a boot menu. Unfortunately, you'll lose about 5 gigs to the Linux OS and it's swap partition, but then, you get to goof around with Linux :-)

Dual boot


Hi abc_19 ,

Before I answer your question , let me tell you that you need to back up your data.Also, make sure that your system hardware supports Vista.

You also need to have genuine windows XP and windows Vista disks handy with you.

1. Partition your hard drive. In Windows XP, using the $50 PartitionMagic or (according to one of our readers) the free GParted Live CD, create a new "primary" partition to install Vista on. Make it at least 20 gigabytes in size.
2. Install Vista on the new partition. Pop in the Vista CD and point it to your newly-created partition as the installation destination. Installation will restart your machine at various points.
3. Choose your operating system on boot. Once Vista is installed on your newly-created partition, on boot up, you'll get a choice to start XP or Vista. The default is Vista. However, this can be changed using Vista's boot manager.
When you're up and running with Windows Vista, be sure to check our our Vista upgrade power tips.
The original article appears below for posterity, and it's still got relevant screenshots and other info for those of you looking to dual-boot XP and Vista.
