Ruby,
What operating system was installed on the system before the problem started?

Do you have a Win 7 DVD?

Very good.

Now I realize that you will not be able to use Speccy, but a help would be for more info to be in your System Specs.
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

Add the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.
==================================


Go ahead and fill out the specs as best as possible for this problem system.


Thanks,
karl

Have you tried just unplugging the new drive and putting everything back to see if that still works? You might and I might have missed it somewhere in one of your responses.

hello FliGi7 !

yes that was the first few things i did to avoid messing up what it contains: his one and only backup. It's very sensitive data and he would likely be locked up if anyone got their hands on it I lock up the whole computer in a secured fireproof safe to be honest when I'm not actively working on it as I have no intentions on ruining a good 75 year old's man who fought for our country and practices law today! I have his entire client logs so he is shut down utill I fix, so you can see why I'm freaked out to do anything I'd normally try!

but now I am afraid plugging it back in could mess up any progress I have made.

I have reached the point where its saying ci.dll is corrupt, and after several tests I conclude it is not, and any windows boot including safe modes all end with the fivth driver CLFS.sys which takes me back to startup repair.

I appreciate the responces that help me look outside of any box I might be in as your idea...any others?

oh, and I believe the root cause is the location of the boot partition files. currently they are in my main C:/ dir with all other windows files as well as a D:/ partition I did not make, but holds all of the seemingly identical boot files, I'm guessing one points to the wrong files and is loading first. Hard to explain without telling you the history of what I have tried.

So when you just have the original drive plugged in and try to boot it up, you are getting errors? And you have tried using the System disc to do a repair install?

Could you maybe do the following...boot from your Windows 7 setup DVD to the command prompt and type bcdedit which should give you a complete listing of all the boot manager entries and how they're configured. If you can somehow cut and paste or screenshot that here, we could try to help further.

yes that is how it is now

and still loops endlessly trough startup repar console

and the dvd was removed and to be replaced with a pata similar model since it was sata as well as the main HDD and the one I introduced! I also think unplugging the dvd and replacing it with the new hdd may have started the demize of the whole thing since the dvd was probibly first in the boot order, and before it detected a new hdd, it tryed to open the dvd in a cdfs type format and subsequently switched the drive letter C: with D: and the New blank drive became C:
