By pheuerman ·
I have a Thinkpad with XP Pro and the system boots to an error that drvmain.sdb is either missing or corrupt. How can i rectify this problem short of reformatting and starting fresh??

you could always try to boot to the XP cd and run a repair on it.

Make sure you patch it after the repair b/c all your updates may not be there anymore.

Also be advised that Win2003 server craps out sometimes with same error message. (not quite).
It just hangs at that driver in safe mode.
Answer still undetermined
