Anyone found the source of this problem? However, that is a torrent file and I'm not sure if I downloaded it right?? You should hopefully get to a grub4dos menu. It gives me this: Booting 'Windows Vista' acpi [activation "crack" reference removed by mod] Done!

  2. Isn't it from their own website?Click to expand...
  3. All i have to do is move the primary hdd back into the number one spot and everything is better.
  4. I don't think I can pull it out on my own.

My way to back it up at this point is by using a "Rescue Disk" such as Puppy Linux. My goal was to leave one partition open for the installation of XP in the future. vulpes, Jan 14, 2014 #14 TerryNet Terry Moderator Joined: Mar 23, 2005 Messages: 72,232 You're welcome.

Good, so the actual "boot" (and also "system") partition is definitely (hd0,2). The problem is that the Puppy Linux you linked is different than the Puppy Linux file on the list of ISO files that work on the website. Any ideas to get rid of it? Je l'ai installer a partir de Daemon tool lite.

Well the problem with GRUB is that, I found, if there is no linux OS on the HDD, it will not allow you to boot to a disk. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/solved-cant-boot-vista-error-17-file-not-found.1117508/ The only thing that is unique to my situation is I was using a new hard drive that had been temporarily used for storage on XP system.

The install disk that came with the computer did not work and I downloaded a start-up repair Windows vista recovery disc and that didn't work either.
