Title: bart cd failure
Post by: Moreno Sacchi on November 13, 2008, 04:07:01 PM
I have purchased the bart cd 2.0 and when I’ve try to use it in a computer dell 755 with the following characteristics:
1)   CPU intel quad core Q 6600 2.4 Gh
2)   Four Gbytes of ram
3)   Video card ATI radeon X1300
I get the blue window screen and no way to continue.
I tried to use the same cd in dell 745 and everything’s is working. So I suppose the problem is about drivers. Do you have some idea/suggestion for to get the Cd working in 755 machine?
Thanks in advance

Could you test with Bart-CD 3.0 Beta?

I'm testing this new version and it works fine.

I've got the same problem.  $150.00 for a bootable product that can't even boot   >:(.

The machine boots to CD, then for some reason starts with the Windows XP bootup screen before blue screening.  I don't understand why it would even start Windows when I'm booting the BART cd.

Yes, I'm trying the beta product, but that seems pretty silly when 2.0 was sold as a bootable recovery disk.

BART-CD 2.0 uses a MS Window XP embedded to boot a system (this is the reason you starts with the Windows XP bootup screen), so if you have a problem booting a specific machine (usually a modern machine) I think that you have a problem with some XP driver that you need to boot the machine and that driver is not included in the XP of the BART-CD.

"... but that seems pretty silly when 2.0 was sold as a bootable recovery disk." BART-CD is a bootable recovery disk with some limits (MS Windows XP limits).
What happen if you made a DOS bootable diskette and boot a machine with NTFS file system in his HD? Can you read the HD? So a DOS diskette, that a lot of us use for several years, isn't a bootable disk because I cannot read a NTFS file system?

BART-CD 3.0 uses Windows PE 2.1 (built from Vista SP1) and all the drivers included on Vista SP1 are present, so all new drivers and devices must be included.

Windows XP bootup screen before blue screening.
Can you post the error number of the blue screen message?

The 755's are flaky in their SATA setup.  I would go into setup and change the settings under Drives from the default SATA settings to another setting in there and try it again.
