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.

Replacing invalid security id with default security id for file

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.
