Inspiron 530, 3 yrs old, Vista Basic.

Won't go past the last dvr load (crcdisk.sys). It did go to a system repair a couple of times but no result. Tried last system good and safe mode but no-go.

Got the drive onto a USB link and got data off it. I think the disk is OK as chkdsk doesn't find anything wrong and Macrium imaged it after checking disk integrity.

Goody, surprised it has a DVD OS disk. Booted from it hoping to go into repair mode but it just ends up into the stuck dvr load as before. Damn!

Dell utils don't find anything wrong with hardware.

Guess it is restore from restore partition?

Ah, you have to wait a LONG time to get the repair option to appear. It is now repairing so I wait with bated breath!
