My dad has a question for you. If we do get it into safe mode where we're able to actually work with the piece of junk, how would we go about fixing the boot manager and all that?

Have you got an external HDD that you can copy any recovered files to? If you have, and you have a live distro of Linux available, such as Ubuntu, you can boot up into that (don't install) and then copy the files across.

My dad has another hard drive that runs Windows 7 ultimate x32, that he can move the files we're trying to get to, but the main goal is to recover his x64, since it's his newer one, and was just ordered something like 3 months ago.

Actually I am paid by the feeling that I get if I could solve a problem like this is worth a million dollars. Guess what full pay in retirement.

I know you're paid >.< that's why I said joke, but anyways. This linux deal, does it work like a reapir disk for windows 7? If so, my dad'll be able to easily do it... I sent to tutorial to him so he'd be able to look at it, though he's busy with his x32 hard drive at the moment.

I cant give any guarantees about it. You will be able to boot and hopefully use windows. You should be able to get your stuff, SR etc. I cannot guarantee about another OS though.
I was kidding about paid. We get our pay from the satisfacion if suggestions work.

Windows crashed. Now can't boot, even in repair mode or safe mode.
Let me open by saying I'm too old to understand most of the jargon and directions found in a technical forum like this. I've been trying to fix this myself for about two weeks, and have made so many changes, I've probably made a complete hash of it. The latest thing I did was to attempt a...
