I been having a on going issue with a partition /boot error
I created 2 PC's from Storage craft shadow protect backup images .
Using the storage craft 3.3 boot cd i created the 100mb partition and allocated the rest to the system image. restored the windows 7 HP 64bit image.
I then used startup repair to fix the boot settings to boot correctly.
Windows 7 runs perfectly as long as it is switched on .
I have a 1 TB USB harddisk and windows 7 backup running daily.
After random periods of time after shutdown and power off I get, (partitcularly after a few days off) :
autochk program not found skipping /autocheck
i have tried chkdsk , bootrec repairs to no avail
when i look in the registry remotley with PE it seems the 2 partitions are swapped ie the 100mb is c and d is the windows partition ???? setting the partitions back did not seem to fix the issue , neither did any of the recovery options in the PE disk..
So i do a windows backup restore , and the machine works for a week or 3 and then this happens again ...
I have replaced pretty much every part thinking its hardware :
Motherboard, RAM HArddisk , the problem still re occurs !!!!
Its got to be due to the USB HDD or some partition scrambling going on but i dont know how to isolate this ...
Im wondering if i should remove the 100mb partition all together , as i do not use bit locker
