Shane has a data base of most of these files but I don't know where he gets them from - that's a bit above my pay grade :)

I'll give him nudge, but it may be that his customers demands have taken up his time somewhat.

Had a reply from Shane and it was as I suspected that he's up to his armpits with work from his customers.

Alright, Boggin,

Thanks! More than work a single man can't do. Only together we're stronger ...

I will wait patiently for Shane's advice. There is no hurry – I will be off till wednesday.

Have a nice weekend!

. (The log says, there are 339 files missing and possibly 55 corrupt. Now, how can I repair/replace these, if necessary by hand?)

Please post the log file I can not get you the files unless I know what they are. Even if the log shows that many files just upload the log and I can look at it like that.

Oh, a friendly hello to you, Julian,

I have looked up to my Reply #15 on: January 25, 2016, 06:30:28 AM, where I have already posted the CheckSUR-Log from Windows SURT. If this isn't enough, tell me and I will provide you with the tweaking-log too.

I here enclose again the CheckSUR-Log. Good luck … :-)

Sorry was not trying to sound rude earlier it's easier for me to copy and paste the tweaking log I still did it from the checksur.log just takes me going though one at a time instead of all at once.
 
I've uploaded a zip file in it are the missing files and reg file. The reg file is used to add the take owner ship to the right click menu in explorer. Go ahead and merge that file with your registry.

Once that is done go to C:\Windows\servicing\ and right click on Packages and click on take ownership. You will now be able to copy the files into that folder.

The missing files that are in the folder that i've uploaded need to be placed in  C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\ folder.

Then run the pre-scan again, put a check on the box to have it add the cat files back to the database. :cheesy:

(THIS REPAIR IS USER SPECIFIC IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH MISSING CAT OR MUM FILES MAKE A POST IN COMPUTER HELP AND I WILL HUNT DOWN THOSE FILES FOR YOU) :cheesy:

@ All,

I have to appologize for my delay and absence. Had a total hardware break down of my laptop in the meanwhile. So, for the first moment I lost all my access and pw. But just have recalled the pw :-) . This note is sent from another pc, just to give you a sign of life and that I'm still working on it. At the end of next week, they announced to ship back my laptop. Then I will make the changes and then be back to the forum again.

Many thanks to all for your patience!

Thanks for the update and sorry to hear of your other computer problems.

If they've reinstalled/factory reset your computer then you may not need those files replacing - time will tell :)

Oh, hello Boggin,

nice to hear you!  :smiley:

thanks for your fast and friendly words! Never mind – either the thing will work for us or it never will have the honour to work for us again…  :cheesy:

I ordered „No factory reset“ before I've taken the data or at least the harddisk out. It must be a hardware problem because it simply keeps quiet.

Right so! Just doesn't start anything, nor hd, nor display. Cable, everything seems to be alright. Must be inside around the power-source connector. Did'nt open it because of possible guarantee reasons.

It could have been one of the RAM modules pulling everything down.

When you get a problem like that and you have more than one RAM module fitted, try booting with just one of them in.

Thank you for your advice! Probably that could have been the problem. I would have liked to try it, but I gave the laptop to the distributor. Like you said, time will tell - and then I will report.

See you, then!
