My Windows 7 64 bit repair disk starts to load, then hangs at grub > on a USB installation using 1.0.7.3 a or c versions of SARDU. On the iso dvd versions, it starts to load with a series of dots showing on the monitor, then the word "boot" flashes on the screen for a second and the computer boots to the installed Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system.
Windows 7 and Vista 32 bit repair disks and Vista 64 bit repair disks load normally without any problem.
Any suggestions on how I can get the Windows 7 64 bit to complete loading?
I used the iso name: Windows_7_64-bit_Repair_Disc.iso

Thanks for helping and thanks for a great tool

Do you use the version downloaded from here?

No I did not use the downloaded version. I went to Control Panel > Backup or Restore > and selected "Create a System Repair Disk" on my system with Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit. I then used Roxio 2010 to create the iso file from the Repair Disk.
Thanks

I can't help you. I don't know what kind of iso you have made. It's a bootable ISO?

I am not sure to get it.
The Windows 7 wizard should write directly a CD/DVD:

What is Roxio 2010 used for?

To "rip" the actual CD/DVD contents to a .iso image?

Maybe that's the problem. :unsure:

Try using a "plain" utility, such as:
http://www.dubaron.com/cd2iso/
(cannot say about a similar 64 bit one)
or IMGBURN:
http://www.imgburn.com/
(it should work allright on 64 bit)

And compare the MD5 hashes.

Try booting the .iso in a VM.

:unsure:

Wonko,
Thanks for the help. The problem was with Roxio 2010. I had made a 64 bit Repair Disc from within Windows 7 Pro, ripped the CD to an iso with Roxio and the ISO was 188 MB in size and wouldn't boot in SARDU. I downloaded and used ImgBurn to rip the same CD and the iso size was 165 MB. I used the iso ripped by ImgBurn in SARDU and it boots properly. :unsure:

Good :unsure:, happy to know there is yet another happy bunny around:

Now that you have both Roxio 2010 and ImgBurn, compare their capabilities AND their size on hard disk :unsure:, you may understand why my signature on 911CD is:

and how it is perfectly possible for good programmers ;) to make compact/working/UNbloated software. ;)

if you are doing this in windows 7?

who not use the built in iso burner?

i have found it to be quikcer than many otehr iso tools

it may not have any of the features like roxio or imgburn
but it works

personally i perfer ultraiso because it allows you to mount an iso as well to test if it is working properly
