Problem with BootVis

By UTouchedMe ·
BootVis doesn't seem to recognize my hard disk or perhaps the hard disk controllers. Specifically, on my 2006 HP Pavilion a1250n that runs XP Pro with SP3, I get the following error after each "Next Boot + Drivers Delay" trace: "Number of Physical drives in the trace is 0. Trace file has invalid system configuration information."

Are there any work-around recommendations or perhaps a substitute program that I can use to speed up my shut down and start up times?

Ah, you found the question forum.

I responded back at the article thread:

(regarding a substitute program)
Aside from the one in the post directly above yours?
And I'll bet there are five others in the comment thread.

But BootVis doesn't need to recognize your drive, the OS does that. It sounds like you might need to run a
chkdsk /r
from the command prompt. Or you simply have something configured incorrectly. "Trace file has invalid system configuration information."

Perhaps one of these may apply to your error, but it doesn't really sound like it.

Oh, and, unless you really like spam, don't post your email address in public forums.
