Windows 7: A BSOD that breaks my heart

OK
Take another chance, but that is the final. If it fails, better you go for a clean install.

Run Startup Repair for three separate times, with restarts after every single run.
Startup Repair: Run three separate times.

If it also fails, I think it will become really hard to make the system bootable again. And, the only dear thing is the data. You can salvage them all using the Puppy disc. In the worst possible case, even after a full format, we have recovered the data (even the partition table) successfully earlier.

So dont worry. You will loss nothing.

Arc I will try that, but heres the thing . I have boot that windows to get my Data from that diary software. It cant be run from anywhere else but the windows system it was on.

Why is it not possible to get the partitions structure back. Simply solving the partition table should give the recovery disc a chance to do something. Even WDO for that matter....I just want the procedure to get the filesystem fixed. Right now none of the windows system can see the partitions of C & D...

GregRocker where are you ?

If the Startup repair fails, Try this then.

But, everytime it is not possible to make the disc workable again other the formatting it.

Whatever may be there in the diary software, it may be recovered. Let us know how the diary softwary worked. Was it installed in C and stored the data in D?

It was installed in C. Dont now where the data was stored.

Arc, I hope u know the mess Im in now !

1. I ran that stupid command and lost my Bootloader, refer to the link I had given (It said Winload.exe missong or corrupt)
2. The 3 step startup repair, used diskpart to set 3 as active - Now it says bootmgr missing. (I am unable to follow what it says)



Now I tried that link you gave but the windows 59gb is nowhere to be seen, just c recovery.

Developer's website: wareconsult GmbH & Co KG | Softwareentwicklung & Vertrieb - Description

My diary encrypts the data and is password protected. Theree are a few things I gleaned from a quick read.
1) You can recover your password (not an issue in this case I don't think)
2) You can run My Diary on a USB stick - so there is some mechanism for non boot data
3) mention f movile - not sure how it might apply, but there might be a hook for
4) the website clearly mentions safegaurding data - regular backups. Moot perhaps,

virajk mentioned taking the Acroinis image and putting it on another machine - but the data was not accessbile. Was the data there?

I'll back out now - the data can usually be recovered. It's just a matter of how you go about it. How much time you want to spend on it.

You're in good hands, Arc and Greg are tops.

Good luck

Winload.exe was corrupt earlier, and this set of command also failed to recover it.

Let us see what Greg says.

What were the results of the bootable Dell Diagnostics you were asked to perform first, with a tutorial provided?

The PW tells us the Active flag is on Recovery but there is no System flag (called Boot in PW) which means we cannot assume the System boot files are intact on the Active partition.

As Archie suggested first run Partition Wizard Rebuild MBR - Video Help. Then reboot to see if it starts.

If not boot into Win7 installer or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times with reboots.

That will try to rebuild, repair or if necessary rewrite the system boot files to Recovery partition.

If that fails boot back into PW CD, rightclick on the OS partition to Modify>Set to Active, click OK, then highlight its disk to run Rebuild MBR from Disk tab again. Reboot to see if it starts. If not run Startup Repair again up to 3 separate times with reboots.

If it won't start then there is as possibility it needs disinfection before it can be repaired so start at the top of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

If you still need to rescue your files then boot into the installer to copy them to another HD, external or flash stick using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or boot Hirenís BootCD 15.1 to copy them out using it's bootable XP explorer. You can also write Hiren's ISO to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Hirens in dropdown menu.

I do not have patience with panic or skipping steps. So start at the top of the steps I've given you in both posts and work through them, reporting back results or asking further steps to get each done in an organized manner. If I'm out again Archie or someone else can help you get them done.

Arc once again . Why cant i repair the C & D partition. In my case partition 3 & 4, that way I can at least proceed to something.Without a proper partition structure the windows reapir will never be able to locate the install location.

Ok Gregrocker Ill do as you said.

But ccan you please answer my one question ! The screenshot I posted shows errors with my c & d drive. Which means the system - the windows repair, the windows installation cannot see these two partitions.So how can i even proceed with repair if they cannot be identified.


Also PW rebuild MBR did not work.

I am working from this screenshot of the PW you were able to get to boot. What it shows is that your partitions are intact but missing the System boot files which should in PW be signified by the Boot flag on Recovery, which is the Active partition pointing where it is being booted. So follow the steps I and Archie gave you to repair it first. If it won't repair after Rebuild MBR and 3 separate Startup Repairs then move the Active flag to OS partition and try both of those again.

If it won't repair at all then to know you've done everything possible you must work through every step in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start . Or you can rescue your files and cut to the Clean Reinstall which will give you a much cleaner install than running Recovery - delete all partitions during install if you do.

Since you're already running PW you can also test the HD using Partition Wizard Partition surface test
