Windows 7: BOOT/BCD Error. Urgent!

BOOT/BCD Error. Urgent!

My dad's laptop crashed, and it's getting a BOOT/BCD error.

Apparently, in order to fix this, I need to use the recovery disk from his computer and the repair option. His disk does not have that repair option. I created a recovery disk on my PC, and am wondering whether I can use it on his laptop.

If not, how else can I fix this problem? Advanced Boot Options does not start, I can't run in safe mode.

Yes. Any Win7 repair disc is really nothing more than a slimmed-down Win7 installation disc to support only the system repair functions. (note that any Win7 installation disc can also be used to accomplish the same repair... just select "repair" from the main menu.)

And both of these discs are usable in any environment for repair of that Win7.

Don't waste your time.Recovery disk won't help.Slave the disk to another PC to save the data and reinstall the windows
