Fry's had two Seagate 1TB drives on sale this week. I chose the one without Acronis but, either misplaced my disc or didn't get it. The retail box - which said it included a SATA cable, screws, Seagate? tools disc, drive, etc... - has given me two errors since installing XP Home last night one it and I can't get to the desktop.
If I try the repair console, I get something about "Windows\system32\config\system\ missing.
If I try F5/* for safe mode, I get a BSOD with mention of Bad_Pool_Caller.
The TB drive replaces a 500 GIG WD drive I bought less than six month ago (remember when everyone gave me **** for using a 15=60 gig ATA boot drive? Ahh, good times...)
Anyways, to try to get to the main point: Has anyone bought a 1 TB Seagate drive that included a Seatools? installation disc lately and if so, was it in the box? If I try to dl'd from their website, I not only get Acronis, but apparently an older version than I already dl'd for my WD drive. The crippled version.
Not that I've ever been the most literate writer, but I've been working on this for a week and a bit more fried for my efforts, so apologies if I've omitted critical info.
<ACK!!! I just noticed I spelled "Acronis" wrong in the title. I corrected it but have not submitted, so whether it took or not that's the reason for the edit.>
