Hi guys,

I'm a newbie on this forum and this is my first thread. I just tried to create a restore point and ended up with this error:

Any help would be much appreciated.

By chance did you have a virtual machine running when you tried to create the restore point? If yes, try creating restore point without VM.

To troubleshoot such an error, you google the text and ID#'s. Just the first few results:

There is a hotfix for this error in Vista here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826936
It may work for Win7.

Quote:
This error is caused by a bug in the driver for Intel ICH5R chipset that results in critical disk 0 not being marked as fixed hard disk. There is no workaround because. According to Intel, this version is not Windows Vista compatible: http://support.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/CS-023616.htm
Did you change out the chipset given by Win7 installer? It may have been more compatible than the factory chipset or Intel's own chipset, if you have installed either of those.

If not and this if factory install, is there a Win7 chipset available on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer? It may be modified to fix this error.

Taking the error cause literally, you could try moving Win7 HD to another HD port to become DISK1, etc. Then change it to boot first in BIOS setup.
