Subject: Missing operating system 2003.793
I was trying to image winxp partition using 2003.793 version to DVD disk.. When I came back after few mnts. I saw " Missing operating System" meassage. I have tried all the suggested solutions on Symtech site including Gdisk & its switches. I can't see the virtual partition only the Win xp one is seen & that is active. But, still it does not boot to the operating system. Please help. I'll be grateful. I have tried ghreboot.exe gdisk with all the witches e.g /mbr etc."
All I can say that a partition can be present without an OS. Where it has gone is unclear however. Also what went wrong to start with, and what damage has been done by trying "all the suggested solutions", "gdisk and its switches" and ghreboot.
It might be time to start all over with a very clean install of Windows XP.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
