    Didn't work for me.
    Changed from SIS controller to NVIDIA.

    Which hardware do you use? Which SIS and NVIDIA controller do you use?

    Which mass storage drivers do you use?
    Does UBCD4Win mount NVIDIA controller hard disk at all?

    Post file system32\config\fix_hdc.log from cloned system.

    Run at NVIDIA controller machine
    devcon hwids PCI\CC_01* *RAID* *SCSI*
    Post the result.

      UBCD4WIN detected the hard drive fine, I used it to obtain the XP install key.

      The pc is back with the customer now.

      I had to completely reinstall XP.

        Can we still expect an updated version of fix_hdc?

        Also, any instructions please on how to run fix_hdc from windows? i.e. we have a mounted vhd we would like to run fix_hdc on from our current running windows. I know we can follow the mergeide microsoft KB article, but how would we do this for the AHCI and SCSI drivers?

        Thanks!

          What would you like to see updated?

            Just want to say this utility is absolutely incredible. I'm an original DOS guru from the 80's and I've been ghosting since 1998, and this makes it an absolute joy. I recently sent my pavilion dv9225 (AMD nvidia hdd controller) back to hp for repair (nvidia video overheats) .. I originally ghosted that machine from an intel chipset gateway by changing the ide to "standard dual pci" which is the norm for this kind of change.. Well this time I didn't have that luxury to boot the old machine.. Now I'm back to an intel chipset with the Acer 8930G (which is an awesome unit BTW).. well BSOD of course! but with this critical utility, it was painless, straight forward and worked like a charm! I've been dealing with XP BSOD nightmares forever and it's nice when something actually works..

            Best, Mike

              As for an update, I suppose a fix the nvidia chipset issues. But even more importantly, I still would like to see a stand-alone version that doesn't require winpe (or instructions on how to perform the same tasks for ahci, etc. from within windows).

              But really, this is a great program and is also great for P2V stuff...maybe team up with disk2vhd to make an all in one free microsoft P2V tool!

                I can't reproduce a problem, can you?

                Are you referring to the post made by Zedy? We don't even know if they ran it correctly.

                We needed the fix_hdc.log and devcon results to even know if it was an issue with the software, let alone fix it.

                  No, we have not been able to reproduce either. So to clarify my request, no updates are needed for winpe, but we would like to see an updated version that can also run standalone in windows against a 2nd mounted VHD copy of windows (i.e. produced from disk2vhd). Thank you!
