Any way to get to this emachines system restore?
Posted on 2006-05-01
I have an emachines w3400 which I would like to restore using the system recovery feature. The owner has already used up the "1 copy" creation and lost the disks. When I try to either restart from within xp by choosing "System Recovery", or doing F11 upon boot, the system states "Preparing system recovery options" then goes to a screen that displayes the "e" logo and "Powered by PC Angel System Recovery", where it stays and never goes beyond.
I can boot into xp fine, and most things seem to function normally. I am only doing this because the system was previously riddled with spyware and a trojan or two. Now, Norton Internet Security will not install and there are some other issues that just wanted me to go and wipe everything clean. The partition with the restore files appears to be fine, so I'm wondering why the problem with recovery.
