crcdisk.sys hang in Vista

If you are having the crcdisk.sys hang in Vista, check this forum. You’ll know that you have this problem if your screen goes blank and hangs during startup, and if when you do a Safe Mode startup, it hangs at the line that says it’s doing the crcdisk.sys thang (which does a check on your hard drive).

The hang apparently can be caused by a few different factors, including trying to install Vista 64 with 4 GB of RAM (although this may have been fixed by now). For me, it was a problem with one of the drives that is not the boot drive that has Vista on it; it is probably not a coincidence that this occurred when I was rebooting after a power outage and — to pile it on — when an automatic update was due to be installed upon reboot. I physically unplugged the flaky drive and the system started up.
