    Windows wont boot

    Hello, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this question.

    I have an install of Windows XP, RoadRunner, Freephone, and my touch scrren software, all installed on a harddrive, with EWF installed and working.

    Now the problem is when I ghost that image to a CF card, the ghosting goes good, says all completed. Shut down computer, go into BIOS turn everything off, so the only boot option is the card nothing else plugged in, I see the animation of the Windows boot screen, but then the computer just resets and re-tries.

    Now the image on the hard drive is fine, i can boot straight into Windows with it.

    ive had this problem before, but only with hard drives running media center. try putting the device in a computer and running check disk on it, that usually fixes it.
    as for the section, this should be software

    How do you have the cf card connected? through the USB? or is there a connection on the motherboard itself. If its through USB like a card reader or something then you cant just expect to ghost it and expect windows to be fine. Search in google about booting windows from a USB flash drive (same principle applies to what your doing) If your mobo has a CF connection on it Then you will most likely need to run a windows repair.

    Windows will load the old IDE controller that it was hooked up originally before and thats why its restarting. You need to change the IDE controller to a standard generic before you ghost otherwise a windows repair.....
