Windows 7: c:\boot\BCD corrupt

30 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
c:\boot\BCD corrupt

Sorry, I am novice user and upgraded from winxp to win 7 ultimate.

At the first day I Installed Windows 7 facing issues. . My pc was working fine until yesterday. Now My Windows 7 cannot boot. It shows error C:\boot\BCD corrupt and unreadable.

I try to recover using Windows 7 CD but nor i can use system restore point because my drive is not recognized there and nor i have any system image. Even Windows 7 is not able to fix it. I tried using command prompt. But it shows drive X instead of installed drive. Is it normal. So how can I run CHKDSK command for C:\ from there ??

PS. now my WD sata harddisk cannot find boot drive.
Please please please someone help me. I am very frustrated. because lots of my work is remaining to do.

Boot up using the Startup disk CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, you will need a CD/DVD drive.
Make sure no USB drives are plugged in.

Do a Strartup Repair:
Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

If you have not made your Startup Repair
System Repair Disc - Create
Do you have a mate with Windows 7 & CD/DVD RW Drive, how could burn one off.

For better help,Can you post your full specs.
