I second the tutorial seavixen32 linked to. That has helped many people already. Thank you for posting that, Andrew.


Also, Greg responded in the other thread in Post #17. I would recommend taking a look at his suggestions there, as well. Please respond in this thread to his suggestions, and I'll make sure he is aware of the steps taken.

Thanks.

The issue has been resolved. This is the sequence of steps that I had followed-

1. Created a bootable USB following the steps outlined at
Hiren's BootCD From USB Flash Drive (Pen Drive) www.hiren.info

2. Copied all the applications from Hiren's CD onto the USB
Hiren's BootCD 15.1 - All in one Bootable CD www.hiren.info

3. Booted the troubled system into Mini XP using the bootable USB

4. Used Partition Wizard (bundled into Hiren's CD) to recover the partitions

5. Ran Win 7 installation DVD's Startup Repair twice to restore/fix the boot sector

The system is now back to normalacy with all the data intact.

Thanks sibbil, writhziden, seavixen32, greg and all others who have contributed to this forum for your help!

Hi Shubham Maurya,
From your post I am assuming you are not able to figure out what to do
after downloading the Hirens software (an ISO file).
Hirens Part--
01] If you have CD/DVD writer, burn/write that ISO file on a CD/DVD.
02] Boot your system with CD/DVD and select "mini XP" from the menu.
03] Once you get "mini XP" screen, you may find a command window icon on the screen
or check it in the menu.
04] Run the command promt and go to "~\Programs\" folder and run "PartitionWizard.cmd"
to start "PartitionWizard" program.
05] In "PartitionWizard" program, on the left column you will find "operation" column;
under that you get "Partition Recovery" operation.
06] Use that to get your partitions back.

Windows 7 DVD part-
Once above steps are completed follow these
01] Restart your system with "Windows 7" DVD.
02] "Windows 7" will let you repair the existing OS.
03] You should be able log into your "windows 7" with all data intact.
