Perform Emergency Boot to repair SBFS.
Ok I followed the procedure outlined in KB53258...
I boot and Authorize with CotD, then I try to Authenticate from Database (not SBFS) and when the Select Transfer Database window opens the c drive is not listed, the only one listed that has any files is the floppy (SafeTech Disk), and those generate an error.
It will not allow a Emergency Boot without being both Authorized and Authenticated.
FYI Ver. 188.8.131.52 Build: 5500
EDIT: In the meantime I will see if I can get to the Data using the A43 Utility from the WinTech Disc.
Are you booting from SafeTech floppy? Did you put exported SDB file there?
You need exported machine SDB file on SafeTech floppy for step (3.)
How do I export the SDB File, and from where do I export it?
I exported it and copied it to a thumb drive.
I was able to see the drive with the file, I selected the Machine, and it is in process... It has been running for a bit now, does this usually take some time to Authenticate?
I would copy it to the floppy. USB support in EE pre-boot environments is iffy.
Well the SDB File for just the affected laptop is over 2MB. The whole group SDB file is 21MB+.
So fitting it on the Floppy is out...
I wonder if I should create the "Floppy" onto the USB Stick? -bearing in mind your USB in Pre-Boot environment warning. =)
EDIT: Is there a newer SafeTech or WinTech ISO available?
When you export, blank out "Include all users" and "Include all files". Is it still that big?
