    Vista is not booting up past the Sign In/Welcome screen. It lets me type in
    my password and then just hangs with the perpetually spinning busy-circle.

    I've tried booting in safe mode and it goes through the scrolling of loading
    files and always gets stuck on the crcdisk.sys file.

    Upon searching here and elsewhere I see many questions about this, but none
    of the very few posted "fixes" has worked for me.

    This is new Gateway system which came with Vista Ultimate pre-installed. The
    system had been working great until I decided I wanted to add a Lightscribe
    capable DVD/CD writer = Samsung SH-S183L SATA model. My 1st thougth was to
    just pull the drive out of the sytem, but even upon removing the drive the
    system still will not boot.

    I have sent this same question to Gateway and Samsung with no reply yet so
    any help from here will be GREATLY appreciated.

    I came across this problem this morning, I took out the disk and connected it
    to a XP machine and did a chkdsk /f which resolved the problem. Just wanted
    to share this for those who come accross this problem, I see some people went
    ahead with a low level format and reinstall. Try this one first before you
    venture down that path ;)
