Windows 7: I broke build 7600 and need help

15 Jul 2009   #1

7 Pro Build 7600.16385x64 [2.0 WEI]
I broke build 7600 and need help

I know that title is not very detailed at all, but the thing is that I don't know how to describe my problem.

This is what I did, I had a primary partition running 7264x64 and I shrunk that using GParted and created a second partition that I would install 7600x64 on. I did that and both OS's were running just fine. I backed up all my stuff from 7264 to 7600 then decided to use GParted to delete the first partition and move the 2nd one to the left and expand it to full size.

After doing that, I found myself not being able to boot into 7600 or anything else for that matter. I tried using the 7600x64 disc as a recovery and it wouldn't work. So instead I found an old 7201x64 disc and used that to recover my Windows 7 and it found it and booted up. However, it says that my hard drive is now "D:" when it used to be "C:" and everything is all Windows Classic-ish.

I didn't even have a taskbar, I had to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and open up the task manager and run "explorer.exe" to get what I have now.

So I don't know what the hell is wrong with my PC. :\

My desktop screenshot is attached.

TBH, if you don't need any of the data. I would just rebuild it and reinstall Windows 7.

Can you show a disk management screenshot?

I would agree with the above, adding that you should clean install.

Windows® 8 Pro (64-bit)

Can you open an elevated command prompt?
if yes, open it and type slmgr -rearm and press Enter.

7 Pro Build 7600.16385x64 [2.0 WEI]

I have no idea what went wrong, but I did another clean install and am doing fine. I couldn't even do the rearm method and every time I clicked Start > Computer it said something about it not being a valid command and showed "explorer.exe"

it wouldn't let me open disk management, and i didn't try to activate.
