After many successful Universal restores into a VPC2004 VM, this one is causing trouble. - Image (W2K) of entire disk using my trusty TI9.0.2337 - Universal restore using TI9.1.3633UR - Boot menu comes up, but all paths from there (OS or Recovery Console) lead to 100% CPU ultilization. All attempts to get to the RC result in a blinking cursor. If not in safe mode, the Windows character fuel guage freezes after 3 or 4 blocks. If in safe mode, I get: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT\System32\ntoskrnl.exe multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT\System32\hal.dll multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT\System32\BOOTVID.dll multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT\System32\config\system I can BartPE into the C: partition, everyhting looks fine. UR did its thing, replaced hal.dll, ntoskrnl.exe, etc. MBR obviously works, C: is recognized, HAL loads... Just stops at system? During restore I do (always) get asked for the location of a missing ntoskrnl.exe. Pointing it to the system32 directory on the original box (still running on the network) has worked in the past. Not this time.
