Fixing “Disk Read Error” while Migrating to Windows 7 by gyvwpsjkko


									?Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7, has everything that a computer user
can ask for. The users using systems based on Windows Vista operating system can
also upgrade their systems to Windows 7 and enjoy all its advanced features.
Migrating to Windows 7 can be easily performed by using a Windows 7 upgrade
software. Moreover, the process does not require you to perform backup of your hard
drive data. Migration to Windows 7 might be an task, but it can also leave your
system in an unbootable state, if not performed systematically. In such situations, the
data stored on your hard drive becomes inaccessible. To retrieve data, an up-to-date
backup enables you to restore the data. But, if the backup is not maintained or
inaccessible, then you will need to use advanced data recovery software to recover
your data.

Consider a practical situation, where you start migrating from Windows Vista to
Windows 7 operating system. However, after the first part of installation was over, the
system was unable to boot the setup configuration. Left with no option, you go back
to Windows Vista by deleting the setup information and cleaning the boot record.
After doing so, when you attempt to reboot your system, you receive another booting
error message:

"A Disk Read Error Occurred. Press Cltr-Alt-Del to reboot."

Once the above booting error message is displayed, the data stored on the hard drive
becomes inaccessible. This error message pops up only when the migration process is
not followed systematically.


To resolve the above booting error message and access the hard drive data, you will
need to follow any of the below steps:

1.Enter Windows Vista setup CD.
2.Open the Recovery Console.
3.Run CHKDSK command.

However, if the above steps fail to resolve your problem then you will need to
reinstall Windows Vista. This resolution ensures that the system will be bootable and
you can store new data on your hard drive. However, the resolution has a major
disadvantage that your previously stored data will be deleted from your hard drive. To
overcome this disadvantage, you can use an effective data recovery software to
recover the formatted data. A data recovery tools incorporated high end scanning
procedures to salvage the formatted hard drive data.

application and allows even an novice user to recover formatted data. Supported by
