I put Linux on a flash drive, and then i rebooted, and set it as 1st boot device
restarted pc, it did all that stuff.
then it gets to the Backup CMOS....
and it doesn't work, i've had it happen before, so i usually just restart, set hard drive as boot device, and go back into windows.
Well this time, i rebooted set it to hard drive, restarted, then it said
"error loading operating system"
So, I'm freaking out, I rebooted, same thing.
this error has shown up before, and the solution was to format, and reinstall windows. No big problem.
First I loaded up the Windows CD, then repaired the windows install, rebooted, same error
I loaded up Ubuntu, and tried to see if i could access the partition, which i could. I backed up my stuff through ubuntu onto my external. After this i rebooted, loaded up windows cd, delete the windows partition, and set up another, I formatted it, then it did it's copy thing. After that was done, i rebooted, and hoped for the best....same error.
So, I googled the error, and got some hits about formatting and reinstalling, i did that, it did nothing. After this i loaded up ubuntu again, I wanted to see if the hard drive failed, to test this, I tried installing Ubuntu....success, I rebooted, and took the live CD outta the drive, and set hard drive as boot device, ubuntu loaded up fine, no problem.
This rules out the hard drive going bad right?
So after that, i loaded up windows cd again, formatted ubuntu partitions, and did The Long Format, and let it do the copy thing. I rebooted, and got the same error....
Can anyone help me? It only happens with Windows.
Sorry for the long explanation, but i wanted to include everything that happened.
