    Blue screen everytime I try to hibernate

    I was cleaning out my hard drive and when I tried to restart it said it was missing NTLDR. So I googled and found a fix for that, just had to copy NTLDR and NTDETECT from my XP disc to my hard drive.

    But now, whenever i try to come out of hibernation, the status bar fills up all the way but then it goes to the blue screen of death with all that mumbo jumbo.

    The files may be fine and dandy but your MBR could be hosed. Uh.. MBR=Master Boot Record. Basically the map of how the data on your hard drive is laid out. If you have a corrupted MBR or failing hard drive you'll get the "missing NTLDR" error message. It can be caused by other issues too. You may have accidentally cleaned out a critical system file (boot.ini or something) when you were doing your spring cleaning which would generate the same error.

    The status bar filling up that you see prior to the Bluescreen is just windows loading all the device drivers and other things the operating system needs. The Bluescreen is happening at the init stage where those drivers are finally loaded into memory and the kernel attempts to execute the OS (this is where the XP logo splash screen appears). Something is missing or borked or a sector on your HD where a critical file lives is corrupted (and the data along with it).

    You can try Recovery Mode from your installation CD (Repair the OS) or re-install. If after a re-install you still are getting errors you'll need to format the HD and start over. PM me if you need help saving your data or have other questions.

    Oh, if you want to see all the pretty system files load up (ala linux) instead of that status bar, add /SOS to your boot.ini at the end of the line which contains the "Windows XP Professional" or whatever in quotes. Do not screw up this file or Bad Things<tm> will result.

    example:

    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microso ft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect /SOS

    thanks for the help guys, i fixed it kinda by accident.

    I was loading drivers onto the computer so i hooked up my cdrom to the computer. And evidently the cdrom was viewed as master the the HD was slave. When those were hooked up, it booted out of hibernate fine. Once I unhooked the cdrom i got the blue screen. Happens that when I unhooked the cdrom the HD was the slave and there was no master, and that was causing the blue screen. Changed the HD to master and it worked fine.
