Windows strikes again, with MCE 2005

My MCE 2005 crashed like a trooper last night. Missing ''C:WINDOWS\system32\config\system'' File is gone so a reinstall is now the only way to fix it tried a restore point and it will now turn on but you would think it's a 386 with how slow it is. Just having a winge because I hate doing reinstalls.

Ok, I just borged my setup, could have tried for hours to fix it, instead I slapped a DVD copy of Ghost in and re-booted, was back up in 20 Min's.

Really all it take is any hard drive that can handle you current Gigs and the presence of mind to back up once a week. I lost three days, that's about average for me.

Well it's an option...":O}

Norton Ghost - an extremly good backup program, one of the very few good symantic program (not originally a symantic program obviously)

The other thing you could try in a repair install.

Boot from CD - choose install and go through as per normal and windows should detect an old install, and give you an option to repair. This wont delete your old files, just remove updates to what your install CD has

Go to a used software store. Look for an old Copy of Norton Utilities, not all but many give it to you as part of the package, it never seems to get outdated. ":O}

Also a lot of mother boards shipped with it for a while, look for old MB install disks....or just spend way to much and buy it from Norton...

Well it's my HDD tried a reinstall and windows says it's my HDD has errors. I tried a 1 pass shred setting it to all zeros but still no joy.
So I ran Maxtor PowerMax 4.09 and get diagnostic code:ca67d578 sounds bad.

Go to the Maxtor site they should list their codes.

Maxtor say that the code is just a number and doesn't mean anything except that it is failing and can be returned, only if it wasn't 5 years old I guess. I'm still blaming Windows.

At first I though someone was being sarcastic with the e-gold, but it was their first post.

Don't you spammers have anything better to do? Like walking in front of a buses.

I think with the cost of HDD's so low it might be prudent to build all ne machines with a RAID 5 setup. That could stop a lot of problems.
