Attempting Factory Restore via Hidden PQservice Partition
Hard drive (C) prev formatted and Vista Reinstalled (somehow) but now corrupt due to Viruses / Addware / Spyware
PQservice Partition still present and in tact.
Have exhausted every suggestion offered on every forum / google search I have been able to find to no avail.
(1) Disable D2D in bios / Unhide recovery partition / copy mbrwrwin.exe + rtmbr.bin to Route DIR / mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin / re enable D2D in bios / reboot / Alt F10
Result = File:\windows\system32\winload.exe
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because
the application is missing and corrupt
(2) Unhide partition / Mark as active / reboot
Result = Nothing or same as above.
As an experiment I aslo made a clone of the PQservice Partition using Norton Ghost / Copied to another partition on another hard drive / Restored image / rebooted (on a separate machine) and got same result as above.
Viruses / Spyware problems have now been resolved and machine is in working state, reasons for wanting to continue now personal interest.
Please Advise / Extremely frustrated / thanks in advance.
