Windows 7: *GRUB4DOS* Problem

Do you have a SATA drive? You can unplug the hard drive until you get to the language selection screen in the Repair Disc.

Let me ask you also: did you burn the ISO you downloaded using an image burning program, like ImgBurn?

You needed to burn the ISO using a burning program, not just the files. Use ImgBurn to burn the ISO

I know this thread is kinda old but here goes. I have been having the same problems with the GRUB4DOS Red screen booting thing . I have tried to make a repair disk and use it on my laptop but it never works. Whenever i try to repair boot system it does not work . Now i want to know if possible, step to step, how i can fix this. last time i tried it told me i had a missing or corrupt Boot manager or something. Its getting frustrating . Please help .

Hello,

Can you get the repair disc booted? If so, open a command prompt and run:
Code:
bootsect /nt60 /mbr sys
bootrec /rebuildBCD
If that doesn't help, we can try a few other commands.

Mark the Windows partition as active: Partition - Mark as Active

Then run a Startup Repair from the disc, and if that doesn't work, try the commands I posted above again.

Mark the largest Windows partition as active, see how that goes.
