Hi,

Computer refuses to boot from CD. I'm consistently getting BSOD. I've tried 4 times and have burned the program onto two different CDs.

hi

lets try something different.

Download GETxPUD.exe to the desktop
  • Run GETxPUD.exe
  • A new folder will appear on the desktop.
  • Open the GETxPUD folder and click on the get&burn.bat
  • The program will download xpud_0.9.2.iso, and upon finished will open BurnCDCC ready to burn the image.
  • Click on Start and follow the prompts to burn the image to a CD.
  • Download xPUDtestdisk.exe and save it to the USB device
  • Double click xPUDtestdisk.exe to extract the contents to your USB device
  • Make sure both the USB and CD are inserted
  • Boot the computer with the CD you just burned
  • The computer must be set to boot from the CD
  • Gently tap F12 and choose to boot from the CD
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
  • sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
  • sdb1 is likely your USB
  • Click on the folder that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)
  • Press Tool at the top
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type testdisk/testdisk_static
  • Press Enter

The first screen will present log options - press Enter to continue.

Select [Intel] partiton and press Enter to continue.

Select [MBR Code] and press Enter to continue.

Type Y when prompted to write a new mbr code to the first sector, then confirm at the next screen by typing Y again.

Press Q repeatedly until TestDisk exits then reboot.
