    I basically did the most simple thing ever.... I copyed the whole windows folder from the IDE drive to the SATA drive and then fixed all the errors and stuff with NU WinDoctor.... 212 problems!!! all fixed...

    really happy now!! thanks again for the support!! :D

    Hey dudes,
    Sorry, I don't want to be rude, but simply copying and renaming WILL NOT WORK!!!! The reason is simple: it is a compressed file and needs to be expanded with the expand command!

    4 -5 formats in just one month? holy ****...
    I think you need to take a close look at your computing practices. No one should ever have to format that often. Hell, formating more than once a year can be exsessive under normal conditions. Why do so many people think it's perfectly acceptable to format every time there is the slightest of problems? It doesn't take any skill to stick in a CD and format/reinstall an OS. If you want to get anywhere in the world of computers you've got to learn to troubleshoot. Formating every time there is a hiccup is such a novice thing to do.

    Ok, I'm done with my little rant.

    I tried this expand with that file but it said it can't expand or copy the file to the location :(

    I have the same problem as windows won't start due to problem with vga850.fon
    And I have Win xp pro sp2.
    I can't start safe mode either because it complains about that file there too... I don't kow what to do!?
    I have no other windows installed on my machine and can't copy windows dir.

    thnx for help!
