Windows 7: My /boot is corrupted and unreadable

You have marked this thread as solved, so is the computer booting normally and the operating system behaving correctly?

No, still a disk read error at startup but when I try the boot repair on the install disk it solves an error and I get the corrupted boot again, solvable by the same solution as before.

Also, the error messages aren't occurring anymore.
So what is the computer doing now, where it would have the error messages before?
Before, I just had to click ok and error message disappeared. Now, I don't see them anymore.

Boot your win 7 repair cd and try this:

bcdboot x:\windows /s c:

bcdboot x:\windows / s d:

bootsect /nt60 all /mbr

These should be run from Command Line in System Recovery Options .

If those fail then work through all of the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start starting with the HD Diagnostics.

When I try the first two commands, it told me
"BFSVC: Failed to open handle to resume object. Status = [c0000034]"

On the last one, it didn't succeed on "G: <\\?\Volume{35cab553-1d81-11e2-9440-806e6f6e6963}>"
Telling "Could not open the volume root directory: The parameter is incorrect"
Same for \Device\HardDiskVolume3
For \??\Physicaldrive1 it says "Could not prepare disk(s) for update:
The device is not ready."

Use diskpart to find out what your windows partition drive letter is.

Then run the same commands, using the widows drive letter, in place of x

Sorry but all of your methods failed. I have done a backup with the integrated software of my hp install disk but I don't know how to do a clean backup in recovery mod without DVD. Any solutions?

If you had worked through Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 you would have arrived at the option to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which provides everything you need to get the vastly superior Clean Reisntall.

If you've instead recovered the bloated factory preinstall then here's how to Clean Up Factory Bloatware
