    Laptop Combo-Drive Failure?

    You know it. :) I burned Ubuntu successfully and it even installed now. It was great. Why would a boot flag mess up my whole system boot-up? I also noticed ubuntu is a bit whiny when booting up, if there's something wrong in the system... even if it's a hard-drive that's not in use, it fails...

    Laptop Combo-Drive Failure?

    Alright, before my hard-drive failed, I deleted OpenSUSE properly and all, and then began download ubuntu and burning the CD in IMGBURN. :happy: As I was burning ubuntu and as it was finalizing/finishing up, an error occurred which I didn't document. I guess it might have cut itself off while...

    I delete/format the partition everytime XP fails. What the hell is wrong with that stupid cheap dell CD player? I'm going insane. :shame:

    No, you don't understand, I was using the original XP CD. This is not UBCD4Win anymore.

    I used an original disc and it worked, I did all the steps, and my friend's hard-drive is detectable. Only one problem. The XP installation always fails: Either it's... *Missing files after install *Can't load the operating system from the boot *The setup cannot load/copy a file (I tried...

    I've solved my CD burning problems, it was the iso, not the disk or program. But now I have more problems. When I try to create an iso from the PE builder I get 4 errors and 1 warning: Error: DeleteFile() "C:\USERS\****\DESKTOP\UBCD4WIN\BARTPE\I386\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\petmphive" failed Error...

    I tried to burn the Windows XP cd because I only have the iso, while this program requires the CD. I tried to emulate the iso, but it didn't work.

    They're virtual, and they're both part of one disc. Of course I selected that. Edit: From the cd write marks, it looks like the data has been written.

    I did, the disc was being read when inserted, and then it stopped and windows didn't prompt anything. :huh: Addendum:

    Yes sorry, imgburn, and what's ridiculous is that IMGBURN isn't burning my discs correctly! It's NOT working, the disc is empty.

    I use ISOBURN a lot, but it has problems detecting all of my free space and sectors on my CD. Can you recommend another one?

    What exactly am I supposed to do with UBCD4Win? It just gives me an installer.

    I already have the vista disc, the problem is, it won't detect any hard-drive's from the gui, you can find the disk, but not the proper volume. It's asking for driver's.

    No his CD player is just horrible, he could upgrade that too. And again, cleaning of the hard-drive cannot be done. diskpart can view the disk, but it can't detect any volumes. I tried cleaning it, no change came out of it. If Vista can't detect it because of driver's, how am I supposed to...

    He just said he used the uninstall windows feature in the Windows Vista installation cd.
