Dear support,

    I tried the demo from your site, but got a warning about disk
    overlay.  According to the manual I either have to start or stop
    the overlay, but I have no idea which or how.  Can you advise?

    Background
    My XP system stopped booting (went into continual reboot cycle,
    blue screen briefly flashes CONFIG_INITIALISATION_FAILED).  I had
    not installed any hard or software, although Windows update might
    have done so.
    BIOS can see the drive, but no way to boot into even safe mode.
    If I try Repair Install, Windows can not find a partition on the
    drive (there was only one, C:).

    If I put this disk (Maxtor Diamond Plus9 80Gb) into other
    computers as slave, Windows can see it but not assign drive letter.

    I have Goback on this drive, which runs at start up, but can not
    fix the problem.  Your software can see this and will offer to
    write new standard MBR.

    (I did run Chkdsk from Repair Console before finding your
    software.  You strongly advise against, but too late.  I don't
    know how much of a problem that will be - there were 'one or more'
    problems found and fixed.)

    Best regards
    Derek Williams

Hello,

I am sorry but you will have to create a new 'support analysis logfile'. Prior removing the diskette from the drive, make sure you close DiskPatch first (so it will flush all info to the logfile). The attached logfile isn't complete, it's cut off.

Since we don't know what led to this problem, and the fact that chkdsk has run and "fixed" things, the outcome of this repair can't be guaranteed to be good. Having said this, it looks promising. The list of partitions that is built contains 1 fake, and the other one looks like it is complete, and this one (entry number 1, the one with the "A" rating") should be selected for repair. So now it's up to you to decide whether you wish to go through with this. If so, you will need to buy a license to activate the repair function.
