It just went right back to X:\windows\system32

 

You need to type exactly what is on the line including the spaces and quotes.

The prompt will return to x:\windows\system32 but above the line it should be something like:

osdevice                                  partition=

If I only type bcdedit, it returns the following:

 

The boot configuration data store could not be opened.

The requested system device cannot be found.

Sleepy,

 

I feel bad keeping you up. If it's easier for me to just reload windows with this CD somehow, I don't have a problem doing so. I've already back everything up. Yes, a ton more work for me to get everything back but.....

Just FYI, I tried refreshing option and it tells me the C drive is locked. I then went to do the reset option and it tells me it can't be done. I think I am at the end........

Hi Sleepy, I got online with Dell, to see if they could do anything with remote access and even they could not. So, they are sending me new OS disks with the original Dell oem software, etc. I guess it's down to having to wipe the drive clean and start all over. I certainly appreciate all that you did for me.

 

Whatever I got must have been very nasty. Sure wish I/we knew what it was.

Hi,

 

I'm glad you managed to backup all your data.

 

Did Dell ask you to test the Hard Drive? I don't think it was a malware problem most likely an hardware problem or a damaged partition table.
