I learnt this the hard way, and now need to re-image my partition from my original 40GB drive! Version 4.1, which PCoP has been at for nearly 3 years, works fine under Vista. But on 7 it seems to pick up registry keys it shouldn’t. I was a little suspicious of the 1,576 entries it found, but went ahead anyway. And I’m the type of guy who keeps my machine pristine, with CCleaner, Ad-Aware, SUPERAntiSpyware and co running regularly, with junk cleaning and Auslogics Disk Defrag in between, so that amount of errors did hit me as weird.
I rebooted, and ended up with the infamous 0x0000007B STOP error, which equates to a “UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME” error. Safe Mode just gives me the Vista & 7 Black Screen Of Death, with a black screen and mouse pointer after the orb. I cannot get back in to restore PCoP’s backup!
That’ll teach me for still using Rikku’s serial number from when we were business partners…. Sorry Rikky!
I’ve contacted PConPoint about it with a log from the failed installation, and they tell me it will be 3 months until they release a Windows 7 version, which coincides with the public release.
