Win7 says it can't start, asks for disk
Every so often, my Windows 7 64 bit will not start from its drive but claims I need to insert the original startup disk.
When I hit Enter anyway, it proceeds to styart normally.
Today I elected to have it attempt "Repairs" instead - it took forever, claimed it could not find anything relevant, relayed an error report to MS and shut down.
I restarted the machine, selected Start Windows normally, and it proceeded to do just that...
Odd? You could call it that...
NB: On the same computer but a separate disk, I run my original XP SP3. Never any problems with that!
