Save to Disk error!?!?

Post by 4512jth »

Now I have a problem. I have installed dos 7.1 on my laptop, but when I try to boot it up it just sits at the _ cursor. I get an error before that though:

There is more information on the screen, we cant hardly do anything about it now.

Please type the entire screen onto here, then we can help you.

(I see something about clock speed, but there must be more information).

Found your answer (i think)

Save to disk is a powermanagement utility (like Windows Sleep).

This error occours when your system memory has increased or your save to disk partition cannot be found.

Try to contact Toshiba about this.

Wait
What happened to you is that your hdd was partitioned.
you're using a Phoenix Bios,
and Toshiba used to have a Save to Disk thg. I have it on one of my toshibas. This was usefull before hybernation existed. It used to save RAM into a special partition.
Since 7 installation reparts the HDD that happened.
Just investigate how large the part was and repart your hdd, or disable it by entering setup. This may be easily done.
