HP xw4600 desktop PC with dual boot Windows 7 32 bit and Windows XP SP3 on 2
separate hard drives.
I installed Comodo Time Machine final version on Windows 7, picking multiboot option 2,
then installed CTM on WinXP, picking multiboot option 3. When I open CTM from either of the installations, I get the error message below.
Used msconfig to disable nonessential services and startup items, also took off all removable drives.
Also, I cannot uninstall CTM on either partition, I get another error message. (see attached)
If you still can not uninstall or reinstall try these two things: (backup data first)
Fix MBR. You can use the beta version of EasyBCD 2.0 which is windows 7 compatible for mbr and multiboot needs. (must register in their forums to download beta version. It is highly stable.)
If above doesn’t work. Try using a Partition Manager program such as Partition Wizard Home free edition and examine the disk you are installing CTM on. Since CTM did not install properly, it leaves an unallocated partition at the beginning of the drive. It is usually around 1MB. I believe it stores the subconsole information on it even though the Partition manager sees it as an unused space.
Wipe “just” that unallocated partition (rewrite the unallocated partition with just zero’s since it is quicker).
Reboot and you should be able to uninstall CTM. It might be best to install CTM from the drive that the main boot OS resides in. Also recheck any computer sleep settings.
