Here is my situation. I have an IBM Thinkpad T40 with windows xp and sp2 that suddenly stopped being able to boot windows yeilding the blue screen that says:
stop: 0x000000ED (0x082F53E30, 0XC0000015, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)"
I have a external case and USB hook-up for the hard drive so I removed it and tried to hook it up to another PC and save the data from the HD that won't boot, but it just freezes the other computer. After searching on the web I found a few options as far as bootable cds (bart pe and knoppix) and tried them. Both worked well, but I only found that knoppix was able to access all my HD data. So, I copied all the data off the HD using a USB flash drive and put the data on another PC temporarily in hopes that I could use my product recovery cds to restore windows on the T40.
When I boot to the recovery cd and go through all the dialogues to restore the computer right after it starts the error "Error 58: Unable to write to boot sector" comes up and there is something about virus software that might be running. I noticed in another post that there can be a virus check set in the bios, but I looked through all the options in the bios utility and saw nothing dealing with virus protection. Anyone have any solutions, or an idea.
