Windows 7: System Recovery Options not compatible.

14 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
System Recovery Options not compatible.

Hey all,
I'm a dual booter. I've run Linux as my primary OS for years beside Windows. I've used all sorts of distros but I finally made the jump to Arch Linux.

Now, due to the nature of Arch Linux, I had to install it about 4 times to get things exactly how I wanted. This wasn't a problem, everytime I'd delete the Arch partitions, I would just pop the Windows recovery disc in, it would do its thing and voila! Everything was fixed!

For whatever reason, after I got Arch installed perfectly, I can't boot into Windows 7. I can see it and the recovery partition in Grub but CANNOT boot to them. When I select them, here is what I get:

Ok, fine... I'll just pop in the recovery disc right? Wrong. Here is what I get then:

Any input would be greatly appreciated. I know a lot about the way a Unix-like system works but I know next to nothing about Windows. Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions. Thanks!
