After the install of Time Machine it requires a reboot, but when i reboot the system, the pc doesnt start up.
After the POST only a blinking cursor on the top left corner.
The OS is Windows 7 64-bit. I disabled the System Protection in de C:\ drive.
Any suggestions please ?
Hey and warm welcome to comodo forums!
Could you tell us what version you’re using and also what kind of HDD you use?
Hi Valentin and thx for the warm welcome
Its a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
The HDD is a Samsung HM320HJ SATA hard drive.
I downloaded the latest version of Time Machine from the comodo website.
Thx for your help.
You only have one HDD or Two/or more in RAID? If you so then disable the RAID function.
try CTM 2.9 Click here to download it
Yes its only one HDD which is formatted as NTFS. It has 2 partitions C:\ and F:\HP_TOOLS.
And I have tried the 2.9 beta version aswell, but doesnt work unfortunately.
okey Have you tried to install it as admin ? if you can and if you have time could you provide with screenshot of the error?.
Hi, thx again for your help and thoughts.
I can only install software when logged in as admin, so I`ve tried that.
I dont get an error at install, just nothing happens after reboot. When I do a manual rebot via CTRL+ALT+DEL the pc boots fine. And when I try to open CTM this is the message I get ( see attachement )

I have never seen such problem before… and I am truely sorry that this is happing to you. When you installed CTM did you choose to protect both c and d.
My best advice would be for you buy a Windows 7 x64 ( if you want I could try to give you a Windows x64); I hate how big companies like HP, Acer and other pre configurate the computers.
Yes I have chosen C and D and once only C. Thanks for the offer, but its a company notebook. So I cannot use any other OS than liscened.
Perhaps I will try to install a 32-bit OS on to the notebook and see what happens.
.I suggest you tell the company to give you a new Windows. I have bad exeperience with pre installed hp computers. After I made a new and clean installation I was a happy man :).
Could you tell me what ram you have ? 64bit is good to have when you have 4GB or more. and 32 bit when it’s 4GB or less.
The laptop has 3 GB off RAM. What I also noticed… I took a look in Disk Management and saw HP made some more partitions ( see printscreen attached )
I made the C-drive active and tried to install, but didnt work.
Any ideas ?

To be honest I would burn the info that HP made on dual layered DVD, then I would delete the partitions made by HP and then try to see if it’s possible to install CTM.
Maybe Tech(a member here) has some other ideas.
Sorry Valentin. I have very little experience on x64 and also I had very few problems installing CTM and getting it work. I have a disk with several partitions and never had a trouble. I protected, generally, only the system partition (C:).
