Error: Unable to load operating system
Posted on 2006-04-22
While running SpinRite v6, I experienced a power failure. When I rebooted my computer, I receive an error message immediately following the post: "Unable to load operating system".
I'm running W2K which has been fine.
SpinRite DOES see the HDD, which seems to respond fine.
I can boot from the W2K CD. However when I requested the OS repair, the repair app. replied it could not find an installation of W2K to repair(!). - I do not have an emergency repair disk.
I'd appreciate your ideas. I would r-e-a-l-l-y like to avoid reinstalling everything.
Many Thanks, Jacob
