After i got some viruses from installing Creative Lab's driver long ago, i really thought that my HDD was infected n had bad sectors. I sent in my HDD as Seagate accepted my exchange. I just got it back today n the problem still exists!
this shows up........again...... right now:
cant reinstall OS, error showing up!
"Windows installation encountered an unexpected error......"
Info: Windows failed to load because a required file is missing, or corrupt.
this is what showed up when i xfered or has success on reinstalling Vista on my old HDD:
all svchost.exe's, etc, say "Not Available" in System Info, WTF??
so anyway, i havent gotten around to successfully installing Vista again, that error keeps on showing up. Is it the mobo? I'm pretty sure, not my HDD after all! I'm gonna check for a warranty since i did register the mobo. I've turned off the On-Chip SATA controller, switched to IDE, RAID, AHIAC *forgot how to spell it :P*, putting in the setup disc when the computer is booting, reseting, everything!
ill be sure to update if i find something new.
been through Microsoft tech support, they have my case as unresolved btw! I will try MSI Customer Support tomorrow evening!
