Problem: have vss problem ( backup failed 0x8004231f) ..AND boot problem on drive D (cannot fix with Easybcd or thru windows installation dvd troubleshoot/ repair/cmd prompt using bootrec commands). Like to use C:\ as tho I booted into D:\ to get into computer mgt/services to be sure (1) vss is enabled and set to start auto . Then (2) use cmd prompt using vssadmin commands to fix vss issues. Then finally , (3) make backup image and try it again. Can I do it?
