Vista Hangs on crcdisk.sys on 2 diff. laptops, won't boot all the way
Posted on 2010-08-27
Today i reloaded two different laptops one is a Dell Inspiron 1440, and the other is a Dell Inspiron 1545. Both of them are Vista home Prem. 32bit. I used the Dell Vista Home Prem. CD's on both of them because the Prod. Key sticker on the bottom is for Vista Home Prem. They both go through the loading process just fine and when its done, it reboots as normal but then when it gets to the windows loading screen it just sits there and won't go past it. A few times of restarting has gotten them to a black screen with a pointer but thats it. Even Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't do anything. And when I try to start both of them in safe mode they get stuck on the Driver/crcdisk.sys and won't go any further no matter how long I leave them there. any help would be greatly appreciated.
