thats what happens to me when I replace these latop harddrives...they stop on this part and thats it, so then it take my ERD commander and copy the files to the network and buy a new one. Can you get back in windows and do a defrag?

I can get into safe mode. What is ERD commander and copy? I defragged my HDD less than 2 weeks ago. But I could do it again if you think it's a soln to the problem. i tried to get into safe mode with networking and that wouldn't work. My roomie has a big HDD so I could maybe xfer the data from my COMP to his and then back to the new HDD>

The windows CD is back at home I'm at school now. But I am having it sent up to me from my house. It should be here 2 days. ERD sounds cool but it looks a little to pricy for me.

I don't think it will be that big a deal to just start over. All I had was music and some old papers and games on my comp.


Thanks for all your help on this issue you have been very patient and willing to help

LKGC is installed, you dont need to do anything. Your best bet is to start over.
