Ok mate, u need to do this once you boot to DOS (via that USB DOS bootable drive)

At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command):

cd \\windows\\system32\\drivers

ren ntfs.sys ntfs.old

Note This step renames the corrupted Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old. If the Ntfs.sys file is not found, the file is missing.

^thats for backing up the old ntfs.sys file...

Chances are that your ntfs.sys is in the same exact folder as stated in few lines of text i just gave you.
After that, do this

At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

copy cd:\\i386\
tfs.sys drive:\\windows\\system32\\drivers

Where cd is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD, and drive is the drive where you installed Windows XP.


note that cd:\\i386\
tfs.sys
is the location of ntfs.sys file on the USB drive from which you just booted up, so it might be in a different folder so remmember where you put it on the USB drive

If all of the above doesn't work, try one more thing.
Try and boot from the Vista DVD, but with just one memory module running in a slot that u didnt use before...

Well if the above doesnt help your options are:

1. call for professional help
2. call for a friend that knows these things
3. delete partitions, make new one(s), format, and install Vista x64 again (or even better solution is get a Windows 7 Ultimate RC cuz its better and more stable than Vista)

Oh and if you suck at DOS check this first, those are some essential DOS commands you could use...

Also take a look at this, its a screenshot from intel.com comparison of the CPU's
If you look all the way down at the Core Voltage section you can see that voltages for E5400 CPU's can be much bigger than E5200's, so it might be that new E5400 (and maybe E5300) chips can actually withstand more voltage than old E5200's... Si id say keeping in 1.45V area won't do anything bad, your choce ofc...

Also im guessing G31 boards are not that good at overclocking, and reckon thats the reason you cnat go higher on the CPU speed. Keep in mind that G31 boards don't have such an advanced PWM area as P35 or P45 boards (especially OC ones) so its really the question if your CPU is getting the voltage without any peaks or downs in supply. I think getting a P35 board (if you dont want to upgrade to 1300mhz FSB CPU's) would easily bring your CPU to over 4Ghz speeds... Also not sure how you overclocked, meaning how you OC'd your DDR2's and such...
Thank you, I haven't tried pushing it past 1.4 yet so we'll see. G31 is supposed to be a decent board, I know it's tons better than the $30 Chaintec s1689 it is replacing but it might not be the best. I'll definitely give 1.45v a try now.

do u know an easy tool to make a bootable flash usb drive ?

i am not quite able to do one with these guides http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm

i tried "Method 1 - Make your flash drive bootable using Bart's mkbt util:", but its not working, it tells me:

Well, seriously theres nothing else i could recommend (maybe someone else can) but to do the remaking of the partitions and reformat of the drive. If you seriously need your data, find some professional help and pay them to recover your Windows install for you.

Unfortunately i've never made a bootable USB drive, so there isnt anything more i can recommend. You have to remmember that we are here just to help you solve your problems, and not to solve the problems for you (we will do that if we can, but its quite hard given the distances between us). If we were in the same town , you and i, id probably come by and see if i can do anything... So maybe find someone from OCN thats nearby whos willing to help you out. Keep googling and maybe ull find the solution...

Other than that reformat is a must...

man, you've been more than helpful to me, i should seriously pay u !
heck even a professional who gets paid wouldn't care as much as u did about my plms !

i am trying this now: http://www.thepcspy.com/read/bootable_usb_flash_drive

if it doesn't work, f*** it, i'll format it, i won't let few movies and games, ruin my computer
i don't have anything really valuable in the hdd (like family pictures or university course works), its just HD movies (well loads of HD movies !)


ps: if i have to format (which is most likely going to happen), do u advice me to install windows 7 build 7127 64-bit, instead of vista ?

and if i do that, how can i this time make partitions during installations, like 100 gb for windows installation, and the rest of the hdd in another partition ?

No problems mate, always glad to help if i can...

What you need to do is boot from that Ultimate BOOT CD, and use maybe [Filesystem tools 1/2] -> [F1] Ranish Partition Manager V2.44 and delete all your partitions on the hard drive. Once thats done boot from Windows 7 (or Vista) DVD and start installing. At one point you'll get an option to select a partition to install to (wich wont be possible since you have no partitions created), at that point you will see (in the lower right corner) something like "advanced drive options" or just "advanced options" - click there. You'll reveal the options menu from wich you can make new partitions and format the hard drive.

After all that is done, procede with the install and finish the whole process. And thats it.
I would recommend partitioning to 2 (or max 3 if you want to be able to multiboot between two OS) partitions since the HDD gets slower the more partitions it has.

You would need a partition each for each of your operating systems (if you decide to go multi in wich case i'd pick XP+Windows 7), and one partition for backup (movies, downloads, games and such). I'd leave aprox 200gb for each OS+Program Files, and the rest for the backups.

I'd really recommend Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Release Candidate cuz its way better than Vista, and its really quick, and swift. Crashes less often than Vista. Overall a much better operating system than Vista

that's it i gave up, after trying it with dos on usb, every time i try to do a command on the hdd drive, i get the seeking drive error !

now i am gonna format the hdd, if that doesn't work, i'll have to contact the hdd manufacturer for a replacement


edit: i formatted my hdd with XFDISK V0.9.3.B from Ultimate Boot CD, and now i am installing Windows 7 build 7127 64-bit, installation is going smoothly and finally i can see windows on my computer !

edit: now i finished installing Windows 7 build 7127 64-bit, now we r back in business

Be sure to thoroughly check your HDD drive for errors. Download Hitachi's utility from their website to check if everything is OK with your drive. If theres something wrong with it contact the hardware manufacturer, and ask how you should proceed...


If you notice slow-downs in file copying between partitions and/or between folders backup all the data you need as fast as possible cuz the drive is probably going to die soon (this is just for the future, what to keep an eye at).

I hope everything is going to be OK now, enjoy your new operatin system

That board is actually a pretty good overclocker. I had my E5xx up to 400x10 . just make sure if you go over 1333 fsb your have some good cooling on the north bridge. Its also a great board if your new to overclocking, as there isnt a million options.
