windows boot error after bt4 usb use
I wouldn't say I'm new to any of the *nix os but,
I put bt4 on a usb via unetboot.
which doesn't have a swapfile nor persistent changes ok fine.
I was adding those files/options and wham, when I went to reboot
into win vista x64 I got the letter L and 01010101 about 7 lines deep.(without the usb os plugged in)
I am unable to boot into windows even after I tried changing my boot options in bios.
I didn't change nor did I edit my MBR on my box but, I did change the it on my thumb drive.
My question is what happened and how can this be fixed?
any help would be greatly appreciated!!
....if this is the incorrect thread I'm sorry I've been racking my brain for hours.
If this happens when you don't have the USB plugged in then I wonder if you inadvertently selected your Vista drive when using unetbootn. This very well would have messed with your Vista installation.
Did this possibly happen? Can you plug the USB into a different computer and see if there is indeed BT installed on it?
it is possible but i think it stems from the initrd,what may have happened is that I correctly installed bt4 to usb, but during boot with persistent changes may have altered my MBR while creating the savechanges without a partition.
