alright, heres whats going on.
I booted ubuntu live CD and used the partition manager to change some partitions.
[ VISTA ][ XP ]
Well I made my vista partition smaller, so I could make a partition to keep sepearte for my files, and to make my XP partition larger (I was running low).
[ Vista ] [(empty space)] [ XP ]
Well I knew the vista bootloader would screw up, so I inserted the install DVD, and I hit the 'recover windows' so it found that the bootloader was mucked up, and it fixed it.
So now the vista works as fine as before (I'm using it now) But the XP didnt recover. So I downloaded Vistabootpro (I have used it loads of times) and reset the XP bit of the bootloader.
So now I turn my PC on, I chooose XP, My custom boot screen comes up and it comes to a generic plain login. Which is not my custom snazzy one, anyway. this message pops up:
"There is no disk in the drive.
Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk1\DR5"
Underneath theres cancel, try again and continue.
None of the buttons work, and the mouse freezes. Yet I can still type my password in, so I type it in, and my mouse works again. So I click 'continue' and another identical box pops up, with the name winlogon or something like that. And the PC freezes, no HD noise... nothing (well you can hear the fans).
So the thing is, how do I fix this so I can access both vista and XP without having to reinstall XP. I have some important files on there (though I can access them with vista and ubuntu live CD) and I dont want to lose all these programs either.
Som theres my essay detailing whats wrong. If more info is needed (I'm not sure theres anything more I can say) just reply.
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?
