Doesn't look like it is there. I am currently going through each folder to see if it is there. there is about 1000. Does xPUD have a search function?

:D

The drive that has a thousand folders is probably the I: drive and would contain windows so can skip that. We are looking for a drive that is small (about 15g in size) and contains either the I386 folder or a small count image file.

In some systems with preinstalled OS's these copy of the OS are deleted once you create the recovery CD while in some the system just leave it there intact. I am hoping for the latter.

I am leaving for work and will be back online after 15 minutes. ;)

edit:

The command for finding files in linux is:

find -name [filename]

Yeah sda3 = 1000 folders.

sda1 and sda2 seems to be the folders, but neither of them have the folder you seek.

Is there a way we can make all these drives into 1 and then make our own partition drive?

Yes that would be possible. We'll try to fix windows first as we don't have an install disk.

iastor.sys is related storage controller driver. I am not sure why is it throwing errors with a simple recovery.

What I would like you to try is go to BIOS and set the AHCI/SATA to compatibility mode. To do this:

  • Restart computer and press Del to enter BIOS.
  • Find and set the ACHI/SATA to compatibility mode.
  • Save then restart the full recovery.

Sorry, but I cannot find: AHCI/SATA

"Onboard SATA Mode: RAID" Options: Native IDE, RAID, AHCI

I have that.

Yep, in the onboard SATA Mode choose Native IDE; Save then perform the full recovery. Tell me how it goes. :D

So once this is done, I just see if Windows will start/work?

Should be done in 10 minutes or so

Yes, that is the idea. Tell me if you still encounter problems.
