Windows XP operating system upgrade to Service Pack 3 (SP3) enables you to experience new features and advantages. The SP3 consists of security updates, hotfixes and certain out-of-band releases. During the upgrade process, an error message can appear when Windows fails to boot properly. Such error messages occur at a point between the System BIOS running checks on the hardware devices and the actual loading of operating system.
In such situations, the data saved in the hard drive becomes inaccessible. To access your data, you need to restore it from updated data backup. However, if no backup is available or the backup fails to restore the required data, you need to recover all lost data by using efficient Windows Data Recovery Software.
As a practical instance, when you restart your computer system after upgrading Windows XP, you encounter the below error message:
“Error loading operating system”
The user encounters the same error message each time he attempts to boot the operating system. After the above error message appears, the data stored in the hard drive becomes inaccessible.
The above error message mainly occurs when your system BIOS does not properly manage the capacity of the hard drive on which you are installing a new version of Windows XP by upgrading it.
To resolve the above problem and access the data, you need to make sure that you are incorporating the latest BIOS for your computer. To check the BIOS information, you need to firstly check the computer’s manual. After doing so, you need to contact the computer manufacturer to obtain and install the latest BIOS update that is currently available for your system. The process to upgrade BIOS on your system is known as flashing.
If you encounter the same error message even after installing the latest BIOS update, it means that the problem is not due to BIOS. In such situations, Windows Data Recovery applications come to rescue. These applications use influential scanning methods for complete and orderly recovery of inaccessible data from hard drive. With highly graphical user interface, these recovery utilities are easy to understand without any prior technical knowledge.
