if the HDD is good as it passed the diagnostics, then the error that you get when you try the install may not be from the HDD itself anymore. I get into Windows, and see there's all manner of spyware and crud from the previous owner, so my first inclination is to use the Restore method to get the laptop I attempted to start the restore process by pressing the Ctrl and F11 keys but it wouldn't work. Thank you very much."

England, Sep '07 "Thanks for [Dsrfix]. I then discovered your site with the magic DSRFIX solution. I am not sure if Acronis can do the job.
I thank you so much !!" Pennsylvania, Mar '08 "That was incredible! I needed to do a restore on my boss' Dell 700m this weekend, got everything backed up, and Ctrl+F11 wouldn't work for me. Once I realized why the Ctrl-F11 was not working, I was only able to resolve it without much hassle because I came accross your tool. So I download DSRFIX from another computer, burn it to a disk, and boot up my Dell.
you saved my day, now i have my comp back to the way it was when i bought it 4 months ago. I decided on the old addage "third time lucky" and this time used Paragon Drive Copy 12 Pro but still got "Loading PBR for Descriptor 2...done" even though, for the third Wrong! http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/problem-with-dell-restore-true-image.240499/ Instead, your screenshots (posted here as attachments) are enough to hint at the likely cause of the problems.
Something like CTRL-ALT-R or some other combination. I used my Nero 6.0 to create a bootable cd, put your dsrfix files on it and it worked. I found my dsrfix.iso disk, booted into dos AND FIXED THE MBR. I'm here to help.
After about half an hour trying the CTRL + F11 keys, still no closer to fixing my problems, the DELL Customer Care rep said "There's nothing you can do but reformat this content But DSRFix resolved this in no time. Any ideas on how to fix this so that i can use dsrfix to restore my PC to it's original state ? But after reinstalling the windows manually I was shocked to see that I could not start the [DSR] utility.
Get the ISO file and burn the image into a blank CD using Nero or ImgBurn or similar. his comment is here But, your tool fix it in about 30 seconds." Texas, Feb '08 "I just wanted to thank you for your awesome utility tool!! It would be easier that way.

I tried a base install from the XP CD but dsrfix allowed me to save tons of time I would have wasted on the drivers and included applications......again, great work!" England, I got up and thought, before I do anything more stupid than what I have already done, I'll try dsrfix ... Your work enabled me to recover (back to factory spec) my laptop. this contact form My preferred technique is to make independent images of all three partitions from the source disk, then partition the destination disk with my desired partition sizes, and finally restore the images
I ran it with the "/f" switch, and was prompted to make the various changes. I removed Linux using the Partition Magic program. I'm a freelance tech and while working on a client's Dell Inspiron 600m, discovered that some tech in Florida had installed [a bootlegged] XP Pro on her system.
Tried your program and it worked like a charm on an Inspiron 6400 system." Pennsylvania, Dec '06 "Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you wholeheartedly for your informative

I just wanted to say thank you sooooooooo much for they help you and your tool has provided to me." England, Jun '07 "Thank you for the DSRFix! First thing, as usual, I cloned the drive using Acronis and it completed successfully, including verifying the clone operation. My computer did not come with any backup discs, I spent hours on the Dell website trying to get all my driver/utility downloads, tried contacting Dell and was disconnected 3 times http://bornsunsoft.com/solved-problems/solved-problems-with-sp2.html Many many thanks for providing it."

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 on which I had to re-install Windows XP due to several deteriorating software issues, and eventually the BSOD. Booting From the Operating System CD 1 Save and close any open files and exit any open programs. 2 Insert the Operating System CD. I could reinstall Windows on my Dimension 9150C hard disk (jammed after I had naively used QParted to set up a double boot), nearly understood what I was doing, didn't loose I used your DSRFIX program and it worked very good.
This is a discussion on [SOLVED] Dell Inspiron 6400 Big Problems With Recovery! Your handy little tool fixed that right up."

Canada, Oct '06 "just wanted to drop you a note to let you know i tested it on my inspiron 2200 and 600m this evening, worked great on
