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 Windows 7.

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 Windows 7 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 Windows 7 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 Windows 7 HD to another HD port to become DISK1, etc. Then change it to boot first in BIOS setup.
