yes or you can start from the beginning. The data error, cyclic redundancy check, indicates there are bad spots on storage devices so we may have to fix that first or connect your other hard drive and see if it will work using this procedure.

response to ; delete partition : there are no partitions selected.

please select a partition, and try again.

 

we could start again and skip the delete partition command

Okay so enter the following commands. I have to get off for a little while and will touch base later. Let me know if this gets us anywhere.

 

Step 1:
diskpart
select disk 0 (that is a zero)
delete partition
create partition primary
format quick fs=ntfs
assign
exit

 

 

Step 2:

 

If you stil get that error

diskpart
select disk 0 (that is a zero)
assign (make note of the drive letter c: for example)
exit
 
type chkdsk /f c: and press enter ( change c: to correct drive letter if needed)
 
Step 3: Perform the following commands again
 
select disk 0 (that is a zero)
clean
create partition primary
format quick fs=ntfs
assign
exit

right gentlemen, 

you both must have work tomorrow in one form or another, we have tried and we are to an extent further forward, if you are willing, i vote that we sleep on it and try again, if your willing tomorrow, I would also like to suggest that we look at, again if your willing the BCD file as that was where the first statements came from, You have both provided more support and taught me so much,  I think you have done enough for now, more than anyone can reasonably expect.

what is your wish?

very best regards

jim
