Unable to access the image.
Make sure that the image path and the Windows directory for the image exist and you have Read permissions on the folder.

Is this because I am booting off a repair disk to try and access this command? If so, it seems like my only option is to reformat the computer because I am at a serious loss here.
Make sure you are copying the command exactly as it is written. If you do not, you will get an Error: 2 statement. Also, we would appreciate it you started your own thread for this. I realize you have a similar problem, but you are more likely to get help if you start your own thread and link to this one as a similar case.

For example: I am having the same/a similar problem to that found in and was hoping someone might help me resolve it. Here are the steps I have tried...
I apologize. I'll make sure to remember this the next time I visit these forums =)
I've double checked my entry and have gotten it to work. The scan is going as we speak, thanks for the help!
