Re: r61i boots to rescue and recovery 4

My guess is that you made the disks using R&R, the rest of this post is based on that assumption.

 

Shut the system down, if needs be hold the power on button depressed for 6 seconds. When you start the system and see the BIOS splash screen with the message "To interrupt the boot....." press F1 which will enable you to enter BIOS.

 

In BIOS you need to navigate to the Startup entry by using the down arrow key and open it by pressing the enter key. If your optical drive isn't above the entry labeled HDD0 you need to ensure that it is. Navigate to the optical drive using the down arrow key and move it into first place on the list by pressing F5 or F6, (can't remember which moves up and which moves down), but the optical drive must be above the HDD0 entry.

 

Once you've done this open the optical drive and insert the start / boot cd which you created and close the drive. You should then press F10 to save the changes you made in the boot order and then confirm by pressing the enter key.  The system will restart on it's own and should boot from the disk.

 

When the system has loaded R&R from the disk you need to select to restore your system, after this you need to select to restore from a backup and when the opportunity arises to select cd/dvd as the source for the backup.  It will ask for the final c disk first, as this contains the information telling it how many disks were created, and then for the others one after another untill eventually the final c again.

 

When it's finished please pay close attention to the message displayed; if asked to remove the disk and shut the system down please do exactly that - remove the disk and shut down by holding the power button depressed for 6 seconds. If it says the system needs to restart please confirm and keep an eye on the hard drive indicator light, the cylinder under the display, and be patient as this may take some time - hard drive activity is positive, somethings at work.

 

Good luck

Andy
