winload.exe digital signature not verified & boot manager loop
So, when I started my laptop this morning I got the error:
"A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged....... error 0xc0000428."
I hit 'Enter' and it takes me to the screen to select an OS and the only one available is Windows 7 Home Premium. I can either hit F8 to supposedly select advanced options or enter to boot Windows 7. There are NO tools listed or boot options listed like there normally is. I'm just able to hit 'enter' or F8 and both of them take me back to that orignal error screen. Basically, I'm stuck in a loop between those two.
I tried my Windows 7 recovery CD but it still just takes me to these two screens and I can't get out of it.
I have searched other forums and threads and there is help for this issue, but everyone is able to use their recovery CD and I cannot.
