"Error 1 loading OS. This may be due to a virus."
Posted on 2006-07-04
All I asked Partition Magic to do was enable a partition on the hard drive & reboot. Now I get this:
Error 1 loading OS. This may be due to a virus.
2. Boot from a floppy.
3. Run ONTRACK Disk Manager
4. Select "Upgrade" from Advanced Options.
Does WinME have a repair utility?
Note: I did use MaxBlast v4 to setup the original HD, and it has a mini DOS console when it normally boots, but even that is now gone. This is on a freshly installed virgin system with updates. The first time this happened I reinstalled everything, wasting an entire day. Now the exact same thing is happening.
