    Thank you for your response and help. OK I have finally hit a roadblock. When I click the link to dl aswMBR it does ask me to run so I do. Then User Account Control box pops up asking if I will allow it. I do. Then the dialog box pops up showing it downloading. Once it completes, the box disappears then nothing happens. I did find the file and when I click it to open it, nothing happens. I tested your link on my other laptop and it downloaded and popped up the black screen with data and buttons for scan and fix mbr and stuff so your link works but for some reason this computer won't open it.

    Grrrr I don't know why it's being difficult now.
    Ok when I click on the link it takes me straight to Smartest Computing, the Downloads tab, but there is nothing available to DL. It is just white screen. I've retried this several times and at times the bottom left corner will tell me "Done" or "errors on page".
    Once again I clicked the link on my working laptop and it shows your file to Download, so something is just not letting me see it on this one.

    Ok I was able to do steps up to burn the image but when you say "boot the bad computer from the cd", I just can't figure out what to do. The only tool(s) I'm coming across is on the top of the window and there isn't anything about opening terminal. Can you elaborate for me as to what's next? I'm sorry I don't know what you mean.

    What menu items do you have listed at the top?
  16. Delseg

    Delseg TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 31

    under "computer"

    file edit view tools help; Under tools- "map network drive, disconnect network drive, open sync center, folder options. DVD drive window-Security Catalog "Boot", File Folder "Boot" "OPT", a CFG file, and a BIN file. Everytime one of those are clicked, the tool bar options don't change. Am I doing something wrong?
  17. Broni

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 54,138   +378

    Something has changed there.
    What options do you have under "File"?
  18. Delseg

    Delseg TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 31


    "Add a network location" and "close"
    That's under the DVD drive. If I click on an icon and go to file I get: Open, explore, share, scan OPT, scan with malwarebytes, burn to disk, send to, new, properties, and close.

    You're doing something wrong.
    Are you booted from GETxPUD CD?

    I'm sorry but I don't know what that means. How do I boot from the cd?
  21. Broni

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 54,138   +378

    Put the CD in and restart computer.
    Watch the screen.
    At some point you should see a message:
    "Press any key to boot from CD".
    If this is Dell computer press F12 at Dell's logo and you'll see the option to boot from the CD.

    Yea I inserted the CD, Restarted, and watched the screen. Nothing. It said "shutting down", then went black for a second, then I saw a rectangle with little blocks with moving colors, screen changed again to a blue window with the Windows logo in the middle, then straight to the desktop background. Never saw a message :( When I do insert the CD it takes me to Windows Photo Gallery :/

    See if you can boot another working computer with it.
  24. Delseg

    Delseg TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 31

    Yes I was able to do it on my clean computer. After pressing restart and shutting down it went straight to the xpud screen and booted. It's in a Welcome to xPUD home screen now on my clean computer.

    Let's try different way.

    Proceed with extreme caution!
    Deleting wrong partition will result with your computer being unusable.
    If you have any doubts, ask.


    Download Download gparted-live-0.11.0-7.iso (119.8 MB)

    Burn it to a CD:

    Now you will need to set the CD-Rom as first boot device if it isn't already (if you don't know how to do it, see HERE)
    Boot off of the newly created Gparted CD.

    You should be here:
    Press Enter.

    By default, "do not touch keymap" is highlighted. Leave this setting alone and just press ENTER:

    Choose your language and press ENTER. English is default [33]:

    Once again, at this prompt, press ENTER:

    You will now be taken to the main GUI screen below:
    According to your logs, the partition that you want to delete is the small partition of 1016 KB.
    Click on it to highlight it.
    Click the trash can icon to delete and then click Apply.

    You should now be here confirming your actions:

    Now you should be here:

    Is "boot" next to your OS drive?

    If "boot" is NOT next to your OS drive under "Flags", right-mouse click the OS drive while in Gparted and select Manage Flags.

    In the menu that pops up, place a checkmark in boot like the picture below:

    Now double-click the [​IMG] button.

    You should receive a small pop up like this:

    Choose reboot and then press OK.
