As a follow-on from my previous question under ref #21123931, the latest position is as follows:
I have successfully uncompressed the txtsetup.si_ file to txtsetup.sif and I have edited the file by adding
before ntfs in (FileSystems.Load) section.
PHEW! We are now getting somewhere and I am getting pretty excited about the prospect of saving some money by not having to take my notebook to a repair shop.
My next query is this:
referring back to solution title: cannot boot xp.ntfs.sys blue screen 0x00000024 asked by heda on 05/07/2003 03:50AM PDT
the solution reads:
>>>3. Using Notepad, modify the Txtsetup.sif file on the first Setup disk you created in step 2:
1. In the [FileSystems.Load] section, locate the line that begins with "ntfs."
2. Insert a semicolon (;) at the beginning of the line, as shown in the following example:
fat = fastfat.sys
;ntfs = ntfs.sys
3. Save your changes.
4. Start the computer that is experiencing the "stop 0x24" error message by using the four Setup disks. When the Welcome to Setup dialog box is displayed, press F10 to start Recovery Console.
5. Run the following command to repair the corrupted NTFS partition:
chkdsk driveletter: /p
6. Type exit to quit Recovery Console, and then restart the computer.<<<
Under step 4 , when I press F10 I am asked to :
>>>Insert the CD labelled;
Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM
into your CD drive<<<
Is this correct?
Also, the Txtsystem.sif file mentioned above has an additional line which reads:
>>>ksecdd = ksecdd.sys<<<
Is this simply because its a newer version of Windows?
