    [SOLVED] Windows 7 'Flying Logo' gone.

    Thanks for the heads up on that. It seems EasyBCD2 sorted all that for me.

    [SOLVED] Windows 7 'Flying Logo' gone.

    Thanks for that Terry60 ~ I got there before I got your reply but think that your reply says it correctly to allow viewers here understand what is going on. And with that I declare this thread ' resolved ' because on rebooting my system after having used EasyBCD2 in Windows7 I now have my...

    [SOLVED] Windows 7 'Flying Logo' gone.

    Just a quick note to let you know that I'm paying attention. I've installed EasyBCD on Win7 and am about to do a reboot though I'm concerned that I cannot find the relavant files on the Win7 partition/installation. What I mean, is that the Vista partition has a \Boot folder that is...

    [SOLVED] Windows 7 'Flying Logo' gone.

    Hmmm... Good question. I'm loathe to try it on the Vista OS Partition until I've sorted Windows 7 out but I see no reason for it failing happen I first of all un-install EasyBCD1.7.2 all the while within Vista of course. I know that it spat the dummy when I tried to use it in Windows 7 even...

    [SOLVED] Windows 7 'Flying Logo' gone.

    Thanks for the prompt reply Terry60 but it was with an issue with EsyBCD2.0.1 that this problem came into being. With EasyBCD1.7.2 ( note - it is installed on my Vista OS ) I did not have this problem. Though I'm back to where I started this problem has come into being so I need to understand...

    [SOLVED] Windows 7 'Flying Logo' gone.

    To-night I tried to update to EasyBCD 2.0.1 and had my problems. The first problem was my own doing ~ I have Vista (EasyBCD Installed), Windows7 and PCLos installed and with EasyBCD installed on the Vista partition I had everything working fine ~ until I tried to update on the Windows 7...

    dacatzmeow57 decided to communicate with me via the members message facility and I'm introducing this member to Testdisk. If anyone is having problems with getting a dual boot system going with Windows and Linux ~ and you get nowhere upon reboot, then browse over to Main Page - CGSecurity and...

    Vista+RecoveryPartition+Linux

    Hi dacatzmeow57 Can you please post a blow by blow of how you partitioned your hard drive and include a blow by blow of how you installed PCLOS. To install PCLOS you ought to have used a LiveCD ~ is that what you used ?

    Vista+RecoveryPartition+Linux

    Update : Well, it just goes to show, don't leap in boots and all until one has exhausted all possibilities. As this problem has been with me for a couple of months, one of the things I did upon trying to follow online instructions was to get Windows Disk Management up and running. Upon...

    Vista+RecoveryPartition+Linux

    Well, here's what I've found out so far ~ Using PCLOS and TestDisk at a command prompt ~ Selected Intel as partition choice for now ( Will only look for windows type partitions at this stage ) : Disk /dev/hda - 100 GB / 93 GiB - CHS 193821 16 63 Current partition structure: Partition...

    Strange really, 'cause I have all such extensions / plugins installed and have no probs with other sites. Still, something to revisit.

    Vista+RecoveryPartition+Linux

    Fortunately I do not boot with WinXP as my other OS, I replaced it entirely with Vista, so that is one problem I don't have to address, just about 1,000,000 other ones to consider. ( the other OS is PCLinuxOS and I'm replying here from PCLOS now ). I'll attempt to keep this thread alive with...

    Vista+RecoveryPartition+Linux

    Thanks for the thought Makaveli213, but I can no longer make nor access any System Restore points. Vista bitches about there being no restore points ( though there once was, I used it in the past to fix a ZoneAlarm problem ) and invites me to create one. The standard error code is 0x81000109 (...

    Vista+RecoveryPartition+Linux

    Love this place and glad I found you all. Reading through a lot of the problems I wonder if yet another Vista problem exists that might be giving Vista user grief. I'm using a Asus A6Km Notepad that has as its first Partition, a Recovery Partition. I brought this Notepad with WinXP installed...
