    Since changing my monitor from a CRT to a LCD I have not been able to make a bootable BartPE disk, it boots to the screen with the "progress monitor" which states Starting etc. the computer then hangs, the bars do not show any progress and I have to give the 3 fingered salute to reboot the machine.
    I have tried both Reatogo and PEbuilder both with Mustangs plugin, I assume this is a driver problem and have put the monitor drivers in a folder in the plugin folder without success.
    I have tried to Google for this but have been unsuccessful and this forum appears not to accept search terms with only 3 letters.
    Can anyone help with this?

    OP is Windows XP Home

    It is most likely a driver issue. Please post the configuration of your machine. Motherboard etc. Did the CRT work OK? A plain vanilla BartPE build only includes the drivers that are on your XP CD.

    Changing from a CRT to LCD should have no bearing on being able to make a BartPE cd. Does everything else work with the LCD monitor?

    Thanks for the replies

    Motherboard is an ECS model L757A2 with a SIS chipset and AMD Athion XP CPU with Nvidia GeForce4 MX440 with AGP8X video card.
    Monitor is Viewsonic VP930

    Before changing to the LCD monitor I had made a number of BartPE disks with both PEBuilder and Reatogo with Mustangs and Acronis plugins for various new builds of TI all booted without any problems with a CRT monitor.

    As the Rescue CD appears not to have drivers for my external USB drive and takes hours to image my drives I rely on the BartPE disk which is only just a bit slower than working from within Widows.

    Yes no problems at all except the BartPE disks won't boot, I didn't think that the monitor change should cause any problems but when I connected the LCD the BartPE disk I had burnt with the CRT monitor wouldn't boot and hung at the same place as above, I have tried burning new disks without any success.

    I will try to burn a basic BartPE disk tomorrow without any plugins and report back.

    That is odd. I use the same BartPE disk on my Laptop with LCD and my desktop with a CRT. You may want to post the question over here where the BartPE experts hang out The CD Forum (Powered by Invision Power Board).
