Had 2 BSOD's yesterday...first time ever for this machine, which is 2 years old. Figured something was going bad. Ran WD's diags on my boot drive, and no errors detected. Then, on a reboot, it would get to the initial Vista splash screen, and reboot.
I boot to my VIsta CD and run Startup Repair, and get this...
Root cause found:
The partition table does not have a valid System Partition.
Repair actions: Partition table repair
Result: Completed successfully. Error code = 0x0
But...every time I boot - same thing...Vista splash screen for a second, then a reboot - then back to booting from the Vista CD and Startup Repair, and I get the same root cause and repair message.
BIOS still sees the boot drive, and if I boot to DR-DOS, the drive is there. However, if I go to Command Prompt via System Recovery Options on the VIsta CD, the drive isn't there.
Any ideas would be welcomed. I'd really not have to reinstall.
