They were right when they say “This may take from a few minutes to a few hours”. It took 8.5 hours on my computer.
I guess my computer is really fragmented. I haven’t really been lucky with the computer recent days. I had a couple of hardware-related problems. I had one case where my computer can’t boot up due to CMOS problem and another one that’s regarding SATA DVD drives and JMicron whatever. I can’t fix the SATA problem, I just couldn’t get my 2 SATA hard disks and 1 SATA DVD drive to work happily together.
On the software end, I had problems with the error message “Replacing invalid security id with default security id for file…” Windows Vista ran a check disk and replace everything all the invalid security id and when it’s done my computer can’t start up correctly.
It’s this type of shit that scares me at night – not big blue monsters.
There was a blue screen and even has a countdown timer so user can see it for too long. Now instead of remember Windows Vista with a blue screen of death, I remember it being black. Well, it sort of restarted. The problem is fixed after I remove one of my SATA drives. Well, at least it booted up I guess.
What a week it’s been. A week ago I was excited over my new purchase – a 500 GB SATA hard disk. But it seems like more trouble than good. Now I have to figure how to make them coexist. Any suggestions most appreciated.
