  • 1. Insufficient resources to hibernate -> now ported to x64!! Yay!
    I used to run XP Pro x86 and got the dreaded "insufficient resources" error plenty to times while trying to hibernate with a machine with more than 1GB RAM. This problem's been documented in a few KB articles and if I remember correctly at least two hotfixes have been released over time to address this. I've seen plenty of discussions with claims that neither hotfixes completely take care of the problem in all instances. In any case, I never had this problem on x64--until now. Just for the record, here's the exact message (I noticed it's worded a little differently than the x86 version): Windows - System Error The system has failed to hibernate (the error code is 0xC000009A). Hibernation will be disabled until the system is restarted. One thing I did notice is that according to Task Manager, for this particular session, my memory usage peaked at around 2.2GB (I have 2GB physical memory). Typically this stays around/below 1.5GB, and I've *never* had this problem occur until now. I have all the latest fixes--Windows Update has nothing else to offer. Has anyone else encountered this problem again on x64?
  • 2. Dell NAS Windows 2003 r2 NFS mapping problem
    When I add an advanced user map for NFS, it works fine. However, each time I reboot the NAS the User Mappings are lost? But the Shares, etc are all there. Anybody seen this before?
  • 3. winlogon.exe has huge VM size ?
    I've noticed that all my Windows XP x64 PCs have a huge VM size in Task Manager, I think it's only since the last MS patch day. Also the machines are popping up dialog boxes saying Windows is running short of virtual memory and has increased the page file size. On a Windows XP x64 PC with 2GB RAM winlogon.exe has a VM size of 3,131,208K Anyone else noticed anything like this? Thanks Peter Lawton
  • 4. Why is my Vista Beta 2 running in 32-bit?
    Hi, I just bought a new computer and have loaded Vista Beta 2 that I downloaded a few months ago now that I have a machine that will optimally run it. I've got an nVidia GeForce 7600 card and went to their site to download the Vista Beta 2 driver, which I did. Upon running the thing, it told me I had to be running Vista in 64-bit and not 32-bit before I could install the driver. So I went and checked the System settings in Control Panel and, sure enough, it said it was operating at 32-bit. What gives? I just bought an AMD Athlon 64 4200+ AM2 X2 processer and Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe motherboard! Any ideas?

Dual boot- unable to see SATA drive on VIA controller

1) In order to choose which OS to boot with I first have to go into BIOS and 
select the boot drive. If I boot with XP Pro the SATA drive with XP-64 is not 
visible. If I boot from XP-64 all drives are visible.
2) XP-64 doesn't shut down completely. It sticks at the blue screen "Windows 
is shutting down, please wait". XP Pro shuts down OK.

Asus A8V Deluxe 1 gig 400 two sticks
XP Pro on IDE format NTFS Basic.
XP-64 on SATA VIA format NTFS Basic.

Ant thoughts on how to fix this?

When you say visible, where do you mean.  My Computer, Disk Management etc.
Why do you change the BIOS to select which system you use.  You should have 
the boot.ini
present the options.  Did you install each system with the other 
disconnected?




99% of the time this has been the Avast A/V

John, Thank you!! You really know your stuff.
I did load XP Pro after XP-64. Before I loaded XP Pro I disconnected the 
SATA drive with XP-64 OS on it. Can I fix this without reloading XP Pro?
Avast is running on XP-64. It was the only AV I could find that stated it 
was XP-64 compatable. I'll remove it and repost the result.
Thanks again!

Your easiest way to set up at this point without reinstalling, is set your 
x64 as the boot drive.  Then go into recovery console and when you get to 
the command prompt type  bootcfg /rebuild   That will install a boot.ini 
file on the drive that has the proper ntldr and ntdetect.com files

Or, it seems some boards are having trouble in the installation phase when 
you mix IDE and SATA drives. I remember, on this current machine, I could 
only boot the OS in question if I had installed it to the 1:st drive, after 
that it absolutely didn't care what was 1:st or 2:nd. - but that is probably 
because I have separate options in the BIOS for the enumeration of drives in 
the Boot-order vs. the enumeration of IDE drives, and the SATA drive was 
listed as IDE prior to installing.

I basically, just adapted to it's little perversion, I don't think I really 
understood it at the time.

If the BIOS had been less flexible, I would have had to disconnect the 
'other' drive, I assume.

Don't forget about the drive letters.  If x64 was installed a C: drive 
and the XP 32-bit as C; drive with x64 disconnected, your suggestion 
won't work.  Both drive will want to be C: and neither will boot as D:.

The drive letters in each installation will be assigned as needed.  You 
often can have different drive letters for a given OS within their 
respective OS.  They will have different letters in the Recovery Console.

I'm sure Darrell Gorter can clarify if there are any other enumeration 
problems within the registry, but drive letters within the OS are not a 
problem.

What I am referring to is the drive letter path in the registry.  If the 
drive is setup as C: it can only boot as C:. If it is reassigned as D:, 
or whatever, as you suggest, then it cannot boot; it won't have the 
right paths in the registry.  Try it sometime.  I have and I also tried 
changing the registry keys to compensate, but gave up after about 100 
entries.

John,
Removing Avasti as you suggested corrected the shut down problem under XP-64.
In the process of looking for the Recovery Console I hit <F6> at bootup in 
Win XP Pro. (I didn't want to appear stupid here and ask you how to get to 
it) As a result Win XP Pro found new hardware (Raid controllers). The VIA 
drivers loaded OK. As a result I now see all drives in "my computer" and 
"Disk management"
I never did find the "Recovery Console" in XP-64. How do I get to it? I 
don't have the XP-64 install disk.
Thanks again,

The Recovery Console is only on the install disk (either one) unless you 
choose to install it and have it available on your boot.ini screen.  Rick 
says it won't work, but I'd give it a try.  You can always go back to the 
way you are doing things if it doesn't work.  With no install disk for x64 
you can't reinstall, so that would be out anyway.

I have my XP Pro install disk. Are you saying I can use the Recovery Console 
from it?









Re: Dual boot- unable to see SATA drive on VIA controller

Postby John Barnes » Mon, 09 Jan 2006 02:37:22 GMT

yes. for this command it will be okay.  When you get to the first options 
screen (windows install stops) there will be an option to enter Recovery 
Console.  R I believe.  The instruction will just add all windows 
installations visible to the boot.ini.  If there is a problem later, you can 
just edit them off and go back to where you are.

orgot to repeat, make sure the x64 drive is your system drive (primary boot
drive)

1.Dual Boot one C Drive Sata E drive IDE

Ok here is my question. Im not a tech guy so I dont want to do this if its 
not going to work. My main C drive is a Sata drive and My E drive is an IDE 
drive. I wanted to load Vista on the E drive and once all is said and done be 
able to start the computer and have a choice of which OS I boot up to each 
time. For I may not want to boot to Vista all the time or XP Pro all the 
time. If I load Vista on the IDE drive will my computer still work fine. Will 
i say be able to boot to vista on my E drive and see my other drive that has 
XP Pro and all my files on it. Or will I have to go through a big ol process 
to make this all work. I am trying all of MS betas and have the Office 2007 
beta, office live beta and love them both and would really like to try the 
VIsta Beta as well. But not if its going to mess up my whole system and I 
wont have a choice which OS to boot to or if it will just give me a black 
screen becuase if it does then I have no way of coming back here for help. 
Your help and input is much appreciated in advance.

3.OS INSTALLl& DUAL BOOT " NO SERIAL ATA DETECT "SATA a& EIDE hard drives" MB- MSI KT6v

Has anybody tried to dual boot with a serial ATA drive with partition magic 
8.0 or other programs ?
when I try to set up for another operating system the software never can 
detect my serial ATA drive.

I have 2 hard drives the other is a Eide hard drive which is always 
detected. I could use this but the intensions were to replace with another 
serial ATA drive down the road and this is full with music programs, 
pictures etc..

Even installing the operating system for the first time I had to physically 
unplug the Eide hard drive because the Serial ATA would not be detected . 
Once unplugged it will find the Serial ATA drive.Then I can then install 
serial raid drivers and  XP home operating system. I did set up the bios for 
the serial ATA as the first boot  drive," but it seems  if there is a EIDE 
hard drive is  installed  it will override the SERIAL ATA drive.
Once operating system is installed I can plug the other drive(EIDE) in and 
everything works fine.

Should I be installing the operating system on the EIDE drive first if I am 
using one with a SERIAL ATA drive ? Is there a right way and a wrong ? Is 
The software and hardware on the market today not written for SERIAL ATA 
drives. Maybe a bios update ?. 


4.Sata drives - Dual Boot

I would like to put Windows XP Home on one drive (Sata #1) and Vista x64 on 
sata drive #2.
The pata drive has my CD/DVD drive. Four sata connectors and one IDE.
JUst built the machine so there is nothing on the drives yet.

How would I configure a dual boot.
Would be thankful for any advice.

5.Sata drives , dual boot 98/XP/64bit

 ...oh well , triple boot...I had hoped I could triple boot W98/XP/64bit but 
the X800Xt graphics card doesn't support W98 . I'm hoping Fat 16 is going to 
work in the Sata drives . Is there something I can do to have a display 
driver for the X800XT in W98 ? ATI says the x800xt is supported in 
2000/XP/64bit . I can onl get 2 and 16 colours in W98 and I would like at 
least 256 colours display .

 ...yes , I haven't used computers for very long...but try getting me away 
from one...
