Here's my exact steps. 1 - Installed XP Pro on a 3 drive, RAID 0 array. 1 partition. 2 - Installed disk director suite, then os selector. 3 - Copied XP Pro OS. My goal was to keep my "fresh install" as is, have an identical copy to use as my "main system", and a 3rd copy exclusively for "gaming". I didn't want to go through all the trouble of separate partitions and drive letters. (After all...that's what this program is supposed to do for us). My initial XP (fresh install) works just fine, no issues. My copy (main system) boots, but takes a loooong time (about 2 mins after I se the desktop) before I can access the start menu. I get the hourglass an can't access it. So I looked in the event viewer and see the following System Errors: Source: SideBySide - Event ID: 59 - Resolve Partial Assembly failed for Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls. Reference error message: Access is denied. Source: SideBySide - Event ID: 59 - Generate Activation Context failed for C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll. Reference error message: The operation completed successfully. Source: Service Control Manager - Event ID: 7016 - The WebClient service has reported an invalid current state 87. Source: Service Control Manager - Event ID: 7022 - The WebClient service hung on starting. Longest post ever... I've tried erasing the new and copies, re-installing, etc... and seem to get the same results/errors. Errors only in the XP copy. Any ideas how to solve these errors??
