Comp won't boot after using Clockgen - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
Okay, I've come at terms with the fact that I'm going to have to reformat; or, at the least, do a Repair Install.

I can't find any definite proof of XP Repair Install erasing the files on your harddrive or not? Isn't that the whole point? - It just replaces the Windows folder with a fresh one as opposed to having to format.

Because, it's going to be quite difficult to get my files off this harddrive, I believe. If I could easily get them off, I wouldn't even bother - and would just do a fresh reboot. I have no external harddrive, no LiveCD I've used will let me network communicate with my brother's (the one I'm on now). So any ideas? I have my harddrive partitioned into two halves. I also have an 80GIG IDE harddrive, but really cannot find a way to copy over files from one harddisk to another - even copying files from one partition to another.

The main question though right now on my mind is: Will an XP Repair install erase my harddrive's files?

I don't think so... I've never done it personally... I usually just reformat.

Sorry couldn't help you otherwise.

Unstability causes things like lost data and what not. I wouldnt be surprised if your windows installation is corrupt. Its happened to me.

Possibly because your "comp" has the clocks applied upon Windows startup?

I only know ghosting by the counter-strike/vent term... What exactly is ghosting? I understand how to write an iso, no need to explain that.

...Are you possibly saying copy the windows folder from, say - this computer, and overwrite the files on mine?

If your files are on the non-XP partition your golden, but if there is stuff on the XP side, you might lose it if you do a reinstall (without a reformat of course). Overwriting/Repair installs have been hit or miss in the past for me. If you reformat the install partition its gone. If you do a repair install it should save the other files and just overwrite the install directory and registry. Thats just why I do seperate partitions and offline backups. Hope this info helps.

If you can get into your drive anyother way save what you can from the XP partion and just do a reformat reinstall. Its the best way of insuring there isn't any lingering corrupted files. It couold be something else causing your problems like malware or funky registry entry.

The XP repair option could possibly delete some files. It's been hit and miss with me as well, and sometimes I'd have corrupt or locked files.

I would throw in a spare HD and install XP on that. If it installs and runs fine, then it's probably a Windows problem caused by Clock-Gen. If your computer still has problems on a fresh install of XP, you have a hardware problem.

You have to use a program like Norton to ghost an image of your XP install and thats only good when everything is working ok. Pnce the install drive is hosed its too late.

OCing your cpu with software and being surprised to fail is like eating poison and being surprised you are choking to death.
