Windows Vista Boot Mgr problem

Hello,

Any help greatly appreciated.

Windows Vista Startup problem.
Windows Boot Manager--Error message--

Windows has encountered a problem
communicating with a device coonected to
your computer.
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an
external
USB drive while the device is in use, or

by faulty hardware such as a hard drive

that is failing. Make sure any removable

strorage is properly connected and then

restart your computer.
If you continue to receive this error
message, contact the hardware

manufacturer.
Status: 0xc00000e9
Info: An unexpected I/O error has

occurred.


Actually I only tried to transfer files to another WD External hard drive. Windows Vista(Home Premium 32 bit) gave a mesage that the Disk is currently in use and it needs a startup and it tried restarted on its own.
It did not restart but showing up a blank screen.
Then I tried to use Windows Vista
Start up disk Which I created with
Software from Cnet as startup disk for
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

I tried to fix the problem by putting the startup disk in the cd drive.
It says.. Windows is loading files..
and about loading say 50% or so....half the way after loading
files it stops doing nothing
and after 10 minutes showed the above mentioned message.

Please help me. I don't know
how to start my computer.

Thanks,
Rama

  1. Before anything else, did you disconnect the external hard disk?
  2. Actually I did not disconnect my external Hard drive. I started to copy the partition C Drive where operating system is ---to WD 1 External hard drive
    and at that time I was making a CD with Roxio as I wanted to burn some
    files on my desktop. That is all I did. The CD Burning was over before
    I tried to start the partition copying process in the Windows.

    I thought that was not a problem copying the Whole C partition
    in Windows instead of doing that on startup. Otherwise I would not have done.
  3. What do you mean by "copying the whole C partition"? You can backup the C partition, but you can't copy it if you booted from it. Besides copying it is not a complete backup.

    Again, what happens if you disconnect the external hard disk? Does the system boot?
  4. No Sir/Madam. I tried to start Backing up from Windows C partition. Before
    actually starting the process I wanted to make a DVD of some of my
    project data files as I thought this backup will take quite sometime
    and I may need some of the files on my computer before the backup
    gets completed.

    So I started Roxio DVD Burner for making a data disc.
    And I thought this is not going to make any affect on the
    Backup Utilility as I thought I can wait till the actual DVD got burnt
    and I can click on Start button (or may be the NEXT button --which
    will actually start the Backup process).

    But all of a sudden --It gave a message that the system
    needs a restart. And it restarted on its own and thereafter
    I was stuck without the Windows getting restarted. I thought
    it is actually backing up.. and so may be busy.
    I left it without disturbing it for 2 days.

    And the I Restarted the computer after disconnecting the
    Western Digital external Hard drive.

    The Windows did not restart......after that.............
    It was just showing up a Blue screen.

    I am having norton Internet Security on my computer
    and I believe my computer is not having any Virus problem...
    But......................
  5. If you performed backups on a regular basis, you knew how long they take. Why did you wait for 2 days?

    You could perform a restore from the last backup or you could try a startup repair: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/ You should make sure that the system boots from the correct hard disk if more than one drive is installed. You could try to boot from a DVD or a USB key and use tools to ensure that the hard disk still is readable, etc.
