    computer will not boot

    One other piece of information that might shed some light. I have been using Clonezilla-live to back up my computer. I start this program from an off state and it takes over from there and backs my HD to an external HD. This program won't even start on this computer.

    computer will not boot

    I have a pavilion p7-1380t running Windows 7 pro 64-bit. When I try to boot this is what I see: A black screen, fans running, DVD works, mouse flashes for a second. Absolutely no access to the bios, or safe mode or anything else. The computer beeps at me but no pressing of any "F" key does...

    Pclinuxos, Vista and add XP Pro

    I thank you for you answer. I installed Pclinuxos from a download on the web. So I don't think I have a live booted distro. Have no idea how to get one.

    Pclinuxos, Vista and add XP Pro

    Thanks for any help. The system I have now is working fine with Vista and Pclinuxos. The wife wants me to put Windows XP Pro on my puter as hers is getting old and she can't see past XP. She hates Vista and I am NOT getting Windows 7. Setup: hd #1 has Vista on it. HD #2 has Pclinuxos on it...

    Windows Vista and Pclinuxos

    This problem was not solved with "Easybcd". Pclinuxos 2010 thru the use of Grub is now controlling both of my OS. I had to go into BIOS/boot sequence and change the order of the boot disks and then everything started to work.

    Windows Vista and Pclinuxos

    Thank you Terry60 for the link. It is out of date and does not apply to two hard drives and pclinuxos IMHO. I have attached a listing of the NST file for what it's worth. I sure hate the thought of having to go into the BIOS everytime to change the order of the HD just to use another OS.

    Windows Vista and Pclinuxos

    Thank you for answering Terry60. Did what you suggested and it didn't work. Could someone point me to the tutorial "dual-booting ubuntu linux and windows vista". NOT the one that goes to "APC". It's worthless.

    triple going to quadriple boot

    Thanks for this site and the help provided. I have now been days trying to triple boot with Vista, XP PRO and OpenSuse 11.2. I have given up trying to boot 2 linux distros. So if this is so easy to do, then I must be a moron. That said I have read and tried to follow the instructions in...

    triple going to quadriple boot

    Using OpenSuse 11.2 Gnome Edition. Gave up trying to boot two Linux distros. Way over my head. I pulled the plugs on HD 1 which is the Windows drive and installed OpenSuse in HD2 making no changes to anything. I was then able to boot into OPenSuse. I then plugged in HD1 and booted into Vista...

    easybcd versus mbrwizard

    Thank you very much for the reply Kairozamorro. Now I understand but I still dread the day I have to get a new puter and go through the triple boot again. Thanks for Easybcd

    easybcd versus mbrwizard

    You guys helped me a lot setting up my triple boot system. I felt bad for asking for so much help. I back up my system religiously and therefor should not have to recreate my triple boot system. Which means I will forget everything I learned while doing it. The problem will arise again with my...
