Windows 7: System recovery error

System recovery error

Upon turning on my laptop, I get a screen saying that windows has failed to start and I should run system recovery. When I run this, however, the system recovery box never shows up. I left it at this point for several hours yesterday, but nothing happened. I made a system recovery disk and successfully got the computer to boot from the disk, but instead of seeing the screens in method two, I get a box that says "Error 0x4001100200001012" and has an ok button. If I press the ok button, the computer restarts. I'm not sure what to do next.

That seems to be an issue peculiar to Dell, is this a dell computer?. You can download the 64 bit repair disk from here and try booting from that.

Dell XPS. I'm downloading it now, and I'll update when I've tried it.

I put the files on the cd, but it's skipping over the cd drive now to try to boot from the hard drive. Do I have to do anything special when putting it on the cd other than extracting it?

You just have to burn the iso to the CD (use something like imgburn), dont extract the files or anything.

That worked. I have the box, but it won't recognize my operating system, says I need drivers, then gives me a big long list of files and folders. I looked around online, but I can't tell which one(s) I need.

Your drivers are in C:\windows\system32\drivers.

Does it say what file type its looking for when you go to load drivers? .sys? .inf ?

It doesn't say, but all the files are .sys.

Point it to disk.sys. If it lets you select multiple drivers point to partmgr.sys as well. Both are located in that drivers folder.

Both say that the "specified location does not contain information about your hardware." Is my hard drive screwed?
