original title: Error Code = 0 x 490
I ran a programme to repair my PC called Reimage (an Israeli on-line repair prog). It crashed my PC.
Windows Home Premium would not start. It read :-
Boot configuration is corrupt
Repair action : Partition table repair
Result : Failed. Error Code = 0 x 490
Reimage would not help (don't buy from these guy's)
Windows said to do a clean installation from its disc but I would loose my data. I could not loose it.
Targa Computers suggested that I remove the hard drive and put it in another computer. I only had one other older PC but the data and power leads would not fit.
I then tried to do a clean install using a 1000 GB external hard drive but windows said it did not support an installation via a USB.
