What I am trying to do is prevent you from having to do a full system recovery which can cause you to lose files/programs
Posted 05 December 2005 - 10:32 AM
I just did a search and found the I386 file and it found 22 files and 1 reg. file which one do I copy to disc?
Posted 05 December 2005 - 10:56 AM
you need to copy that entire folder onto the CD. When you copy it make sure it goes on the cd as it's own file
For example, when you put the CD in the computer and click on "My Computer" then Explore that CD it should only have the file i386.

ok now a dumb question for you.................. How do I save the file to a blank cd when I have the recovery cd in my e drive?
Posted 05 December 2005 - 11:50 AM
ok, that file on the recovery CD is bigger, then the one on the computer. so we need to use that one.
right click on i386 on the cd rom, then choose copy this will open a new window that will allow you to copy that folder over to the computer. in The left half of the window click on Desktop, next hit Enter or click on ok. this will copy that folder over to your computer harddrive and on your desktop.
After that is done, remove the recovery CD and place the blank CD in the Burner. Next copy the i386 folder you just placed on your desktop to the blank cd.
I realize these instructions look a little confusing, but this was the easiest way to explain it without sending you to another website that could be even harder to follow.

pack 2 cd now
I don't have a service pack 2 cd??

It appears that when they pre-installed the software on your computer, they also pre-installed Service Pack 2.
lets try something, since the company sent you the recovery disk, lets try the same command only with the recovery disk in the drive instead of the cd you made.
Let me know what happens.

I don't use the word defeat often, but I feel that I have been defeated by this issue.
as it stands now, unless someone else in our staff has any ideas, we are pretty much to the point of worse case scenario. Which means starting fresh on your computer so that you can use your programs. If you decide to do this, then it would be prudent to backup and save you important files, that way you can put them back in your system and not lose them. With your cd burner you can save up to 750MB of files, I don't know how much you have on there that you would need saving, so I can't give you an estimate on how many disks it would use.
just to help on this. Important files would of course be any financial documents, Personal information, hard to get programs or programs you have downloaded that you paid for, so you don't have to pay for them again.pay particular attention to the those programs and make sure you get the installers from your hard drive for them.
Let's hope someone can pop up in here with a idea that I haven't tried or don't know about.
I'm sorry I couldn't get this resolved for you
