The files will be in "Windows.Old" after installation in your "Local Disk".
Also, make sure your repair CD is 64-bit, like your system. Try to access your BIOS, by pressing the "Delete" key; it's different for various mktherboards, and select your CD-ROM to be first to boot. Might help, I'm not sure. If it helps, we'll start from there.
You'll want to select "Command Prompt" from the repair disk, we'll need it.
How do i preform the install without formatting my other drive? what options do i pick? i booted from the disc and i get the same errors when i try system repair. what commands should i use in command prompt? thanks im tryna get this all sort out
A user above my comment suggested something that might help, I suggest you do that first before attempting my suggestion. Here's a tutorial from Microsoft which will or might repair your start up issues.
I've used it before, and I can vouch for it, it worked for me when I had trouble.
If nothing works for you, then here's the last suggestion I can provide. All you need to do is reinstall
your operating system. Just insert your Windows 7 install CD and boot
When you're given choices on where to install Windows 7, select the hard drive you want to use. If it's the one with all of your files, it's all right
, you can keep them. Just select that card drive and click next, or OK. A windows will pop up warning you that there are files there. You need to click OK
, the box only says that ALL
of the files will be moved to Windows.Old
folder in your Local Disk
