that's 105 Gb   :biggrin:

that is plenty of room
right click on D: in Explorer
then - Properties
Tools tab
Error Checking
Check Now button
check the Automatically fix file system erros box
do not check the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors box
when you click the Start button, it will ask you if you want to do it on the next reboot
click Yes and reboot
it takes a little time, but let it finish

It tells me that there is not enough room on the d: drive for the the backup files.

Drive d: has 105 Mb free.

There might be a /nobackup argument for the setup.exe ( or whatever the name of the install binary is ).

However, you should know what you're doing when you want to try this.  :bgrin:


thanks ragdog.

Your question got me to try the sp3 install again.

When it asked for the directory for the uninstall files, I picked c: drive instead of d: and it installed fine.


I ran it and got this result.

Cleaning up 974 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.
Cleaning up 974 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9.

Thanks as well.


The boot menu is still showing two boot entries even though I changed the boot.ini which is actually named boot1.ini and is located in the c: root.

I can live with it.

I want to also try to find some way of remembering and/or preventing going back to one partition.

Take care,
