Machine is not working, can't even get into windows.. using a UBCD but limited

By fluffykitten
Jun 6, 2011
  1. BIOS Version X58 Extreme6 P1.10
    Intel i7 950 @ 3.07GHZ (64bit)
    Processor speed 3066MHz
    Total Memory: 12GB (Tripple-Channel memory Mode (6 slots filled with this)
    2048MB/533MHz DDR3_1066

    The system will just get to the restore point, boot menu and just keep rebooting, no safe mode, or recovery mode..

    I am currently making a Ghost Image of the system if so before somebody can help me, please..

    I can't do any of the malware stuff yet, scans and so on, Well wait, I am currently using a UBCD, doing a MemTest86 the real thorough one, then doing the image off the UBCD but I can run like herrins and run malwarebytes and some of the scans as requested.

    The problem is the machine will turn on and keep rebooting, gets to the Windows 7 screen, holds for a min or two and then reboots again, and does this through safe mode and all of them, recovery..

    If you can help or if I am in the wrong section then please move me, i didn't know.

    • Never run more than one scan at a time.
    • Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.

    Let's see, if we can look at your computer booting from an external source.

    Please download OTLPE (filesize 120,9 MB)

    • When downloaded double click on OTLPENet.exe and make sure there is a blank CD in your CD drive. This will automatically create a bootable CD.
    • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.
      • Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps HERE
    • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
    • Depending on your type of internet connection, you should be able to get online as well so you can access this topic more easily.
    • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
    • When asked Do you wish to load the remote registry, select Yes
    • When asked Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning, select Yes
    • Ensure the box Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
    • OTL should now start.
    • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
    • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
    • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
    • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.

    Ok, I am downloading it on this computer,

    The problematic Raid 0 machine is finally able to create a image, @ 15% on a 1.75TB drive.

    I kept getting the error message flush the log before I go on, or run chkdsk. I tried to run chkdsk c: /r and it would fail and just freeze I mean at 45% 4/5.. I have not done any scans on this machine yet.

    I will create this cd you are saying, I cannot get into Windows or any OS on this machine though.

    I would like to say this now, I don't wanna waste your time. Ghost failed where chkdsk failed on Sector 18949968 Drive 0, MFT is failing, MFT is bad, drives need replacing, at least I only have 20GB on 2TB right now so I am doing a manual backup and will have to just manually reinstall everything :/ again..

    I am going to go and buy two more 1TB drives and instead of doing Raid 0, I will do RAID 1, I know enough that this is not fixable as it sits right now.

    Thank you though. You can close this thread.
