Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
In an attempt to reformat my laptop, I received the following message after booting from XP Pro disc:
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.
After trying a few tutorials addressing the above issue, all unsuccessful, I am now getting the following message when I try to boot up without the disc:
Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
When I try this, I am returned to the first error message. My wife has since found the Recovery dvds, which would've been handy before I screwed up the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM file. Tried it anyway but no cigar.
