Back on Track 3 Suite

Question

Hi all, I have put together a Disaster Recovery Set with Roxio Creator 2010 Pro, Back On Track 3 Suite, the info tells me that I can use this set to put my whole system on to a new HDD but I am having probs. Having installed the new HDD and started the computer with the start up disc made with the above set I get the following, "Press any key to boot from CD" I do this and get NTLDR is missing, Press CTRL ALT & Delete to restart, (None of which do a darn thing I have to turn off the comp. manualy.) Not the set up wizard I expected from reading the instructions which were copied to the letter. I have, by the way, put my full system onto an external HDD to use with the aformentioned recovery set.

 

Any help would be most welcome.

There is a problem with the recovery disc.

NTLDR is the boot loader for Windows.Without it you can't boot to an OS.

There must be a problem with it on your disc.

 

Can you get access to BOT anywhere?

If so what I'd try is starting the Disaster Recovery process.When you do it will let you make a new recovery disc.All of them are the same.After that try using the new disc with your backup image.

 

Don't know if this will help but here's a look at the root of my disc.

Good Luck

 

 

Hi there again tbrewst,

 

It seems that if I had a Brain I might be dangerous. I followed your advice and remade the Disaster start up disc and at the same time remade the whole set up on DVD's, when I then started the process again and got the same negative results. Then my old brain woke up a bit and I realised that because there were no drivers on the new blank HDD for my wireless keyboard and mouse it did me not one jot of good clicking the command "click any key to boot from CD, when I put my old keyboard and mouse back on I got the wizard up ok but could not get the DVD discs to work. In desperation I retried the removable HDD recovery set up and Eureka I'm typing this from my new Hard drived computer, it was all so easy in the end.

 

Many thanks for your help and support, Knowing that there is help out there is very calming when trying something new and struggling to follow vague instructions

 

All best again,

 

Roger
