I was instructed to use "\fastdetect" as the last command prompt but it is not accepted and I need to know what command prompt will be accepted to complete the repair.

Well...I think you need to explain your situation...with more detail.


Fastdetect is not a valid command and, AFAIK, only appears as part of the boot.ini instructions...and only on some computers.

Did you by any chance recently uninstall conduit.com?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
