System Repair not finding OS

May 20, 2009 at 09:39:56
Specs: Windows Vista
I was getting the NTLDR is missing message on startup after replacing some hard drives so I looked around and found that I could fix this using System Repair from the Windows Vista DVD. I installed Vista on two hard drives in RAID0 so when it asks me to select an OS I have to load the drivers, which I do. I can then see the drive in the directory browsing screen where I selected the drivers from, but it doesn't detect the operating system so I can't repair it.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

"...I can then see the drive in the directory browsing screen..."

... is this from the DVD @ command prompt?

... if so type:

bcdedit /enum [press ENTER]

... and post the contents here

The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
The requested system device cannot be found.

That doesn't look good. I should mention that a couple hours before this happened I was trying to system restore but it kept failing, possibly because I greatly reduced the amount of disk space System Restore was allowed to use a while back.

Is this fixable?

Thanks for the help.
