I have Disk Director 9 installed on a system that had two installations of WinXP Pro, and Redhat Linux. I saw an OS Selector message window during a computer boot-up sequence that said my OS Selector configuration files were corrupted. Since then, I only see the "Acronis Loader .... Press ESC for Menu" text during boot-up. After that text message, the system hangs forever. When trying to boot using the DD9 CD, can see all my partitions on the bad drive in Disk Director. Also, if I boot from the DD9 CD, every time I try to run OS Selector I get prompted for my key and it goes through a new installation (which never seems to truly get installed - rebooting from the DD9 CD again goes through a new installation again). I know that my hard drive is still pretty good, but it just can't boot. I can put the "damaged" drive as a secondary drive in another system, and all my files on the bad drive are visible - and running a disk check on all partitions showed no problems. I have tried booting using my WinXP CD to get a Windows recovery console, but the system hangs during the "Inspecting hardware" phase of the boot-up. When I put a previous drive in the corrupted system, everything works fine. The computer isn't damaged. When I put the "bad" hard drive in a different computer, it hangs at the exact same place during boot-up. It seems to me that the problem exists entirely on the hard drive. What can I do?
