The latest windows update went seriously sideways, leaving me wiht a laptop that won’t boot. (And examination of srttrail.txt shows that there is a corrupted binary.)
So far, I’ve tried booting from a recovery CD and building an image from backups.
The recovery CD appears to find the server machine. Yay! It corrrectly identifies the image files for the laptop by date. Yay. The restore fails. Boo
Error message = “Image data could not be found.”
SO, I moved to the server, and attempted to build an image file there. No joy. The assembly of the image fails.
I tried building an image of sysvol separately, and that appears to work.
Tried building an image of C, and that fails, as follows:
Footer checksum wrong. Switching to header
Header and footer checksum wrong
Error opening parentvhd file <file path, which does exist>
Error opening vhd file <file path, which does exist>
(I went back and checked the logs for the backups in question, No errors showing)
