Windows 7: Comp won't start after system restore, please help!

13 Sep 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

I have this same problem. I have looked all over the net & all I get is "Boot from your Windows cd/dvd". I mean, the last 3 pc's I have owned have not come with disc's as they are supposed to have recovery options built in to the pc, so why does everyone (including HP & Microsoft) tell me to insert the cd? I bought my system brand new from PC World & never got any disc's with the pc. It took me forever to solve this same issue on Win XP using SuperGrubs Boot Disc, but this fix does not work with my Win 7 system. Any suggestions? & please dont say something stupid like "Use your Windows 7 disc" (Sorry, but i am getting so pi***d off with ppl telling me to do that!) What is the point of having a built in recovery if it is unaccessible when your pc is broke? ffs the whole point is you need it when your pc is broke. I wish they would just go back to shipping every new pc with recovery disc's, saves all the hassle!
