    On loading my Win XP Service Pack 2 pc, I get the following error message

    !!!Warning !!!
    Disk Book sector is to be modified. Type Y to accept , any key to abort.

    Typing Y or any key does not change anything.
    Computer freezes & beeps continually. Cannot enter setup by typing Del. Cannot boot from Acronis Boot Disk.

    On rebooting, same problem again

    What can be the problem?

    It does not sound like a TI problem.
    Suggest you try Microsoft.public.windows update news group. Microsoft support web site should also help.

    Thanks for the reply. But I wonder why TI cannot be of any help in this case.
    I will have to bring my PC to the computer workshop to correct the problem.

    Some further thoughts.
    1.You should find out what the beep codes for your computer are trying to tell you.
    2. I do not believe that XP SP2 is still supported. Why not go for SP3 because you do not have to install SP2 beforehand. There are still a large number up hot fixes to install since SP3.
    3. I did not see any thing in your post that stated that you have a full validated image of your hard drive. If you have restored before or you have a spare drive to install and restore to you would be ideally place to start over with a SP3 update.
    4. Ti is not much use in fixing a broken system other than restoring it to a previous working state.

    2) For that, I need the PC to boot normally. However neither pressing F11, nor booting from the Acronis boot CD allows me to launch Acronis & do a restore.

    3) I have created an image of my HDD & activated Acronis Startup recovery manager

    Thanks everybody. I brought my PC to the computer shop. The technician said it was a bios setting. Now everything goes fine.
