Memory fried while doing a restore with dual boot disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • I did feedback on this and the team says that the memory was bad when i started the restore, which is probobaly right, because the beta team has the error report to look at. Anyway I had already did two restores on the same computer that went smooth., no problems at all

    I am just curious to know if anyone has seen this happen

    I've done multiple restores to one computer and it's never given a single problem. Formatting/reinstalling the OS cured the problem (backup issues). Had to format/reinstall the OS on a second machine due to backup issues. I've restored 3 other PC's in my home network and none of them has never had an issue with ram or the restore process.

    The ram must have been bad to begin with.

  • ! agree because i haven't had any problem of that nature except for the one time and i have run restore on vista home premium, vista ultimate, xp home, and xp pro, before powerpack,  I have so far just been using the one machine, ( xp home) as a guinea pig since starting the powerpack beta  I am running two home server's. The one i own (i unininstalled powerpack from it after i discovered here in the forum that i could run two home servers at once,to be safe )  and the beta software.  I am trying to get enough confidence to test restore with powerpack on another computer. Anyway I posted because

    it happened, even though it was a one time event, and i hadn't dectected any ram problem previous to the restore, which doesn't really mean anything either. Just one of those agrravating flukes evidently, that happened during a beta test to complicate things
