I think lightening might have killed my install
« on: July 17, 2009, 05:52:24 pm »
So during a heavy thunderstorm the power went off and back on lots of times, sadly i was stuck at work and i think this repeated power cycling might have killed my install!

I have switched on my hybrid and the boot process gets as far as;

Orbiter generation Start
Orbiter generation Done

But then stops.

All hard drive activity stops and the machine is just sat waiting.

Is there anyway i can recover this system or am i back to starting from scratch?

For future reference;

I would advise everyone to set their BIOS that when a machine has its power cut it remains off and doesnt come back on! 

Mine will be set like this in future (until i can get the cash together for an UPS).
