Hello



Lets see if we can get this to work



I want you to navigate to this file file on the good computer C:/Windows/System32/drivers/fbd.sys
right click on the file and select copy
now plug in the usb drive and right click on an empty space and select paste


boot back into XPud and navigate to the file on the usb and right click on it and select copy
navigate to this file /mnt/sda2/Windows/System32/drivers/fbd.sys right click on the file and select rename and rename it to fbd.old
right click now in an empty space in the drivers folder and select paste and the new file should popup


check if the computer will now boot

Hello FutureWoWplayer

I am going to check on my computer for the file - but it will be this weekend before I can do this as I am out of state right now on a family emergancy that is why the slow responce times

I am going to be upfront as I do not like the way this one is going and if you have any free time right now I would use XPud to remove any files you may need off this computer

I'm sorry to hear about your family. My prayers will be with you.

As for the computer there is really nothing of importance that can't be replaced. So I'll wait for your responses as family comes first. I just appreciate the help.

Sorry for the delays

I have been going over things and it does not look good.


I have looked on my computer and I do not have that file also but the file is a legit file but has nothing to do with the computer booting

as with the way things stand right now I think reloading windows is the smartest thing to do and willhave this computer in top shape in a couple of hours

How do we go about reloading windows. I bought this computer second hand so I don't have any of the disk or anything. Is there a program or something I should download?
