7600 'Build is not genuine'
I started the computer today and after logging in, the desktop turned to a black screen, with 'Build 7600-This copy of windows is not genuine'.
No start button or anything.
I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del and started cmd, as that was the only thing that worked. Then I noticed, that instead of the usual "C:\User" prompt, it instead read "C:\found.000\dir0001.chk\system32>"
I tried running the registry editor, but that would not start.
The installation disk does not work either.

Boot the Windows 7 DVD Repair console, click through to Recovery TOols list to Run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots: Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
Go to what's left of the desktop, place your Install DVD in the tray to see if it will autostart to run a Repair Install from desktop. If not, access Task Manager using Cntrl Alt Del, on first tab start New Task and type d:\setup in the Run box to see if Repair install can be Run. Replace d: with your DVD drive letter if different.
This behavior on legit copies can be due to drive letter slipping although it usually happens during reimaging. Check that your drive letter is correct in Registry using this method: http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/51503-moving-Windows 7-partition-another-drive.html
If all fails, copy out your files using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console
Run HD diagnostics/repair full CD scan: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 Followed by Disk Check if it finds bad sectors to repair, since chkdsk will have already been run if needed by Startup Repair. Sometimes you need the surface repair before chkdsk will repair file system.
