Windows 7: Problem with booting Windows 7

Problem with booting Windows 7

Hello,

Windows started to boot quite slowly, so I entered the repair DVD, and clicked on Repair your computer, and I got a message that said something like "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?". also got something like identifier:9dea862c-5cdd-4e70-acc1-f32b344d4795 and Partition : D: , but I only have C: partition, I don't get it, is this problem related to the slow booting I encounter or something else? or should I click on repair?

Thanks!

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

It's not that I can't boot into Window, I can boot, but just slower than what it used it be, and it's the first time I inserted the repair DVD and got this message. what will happen if I will press Repair, although Windows does boot?and why it shows the partition as D: when I only have C:?

I have a question : Is this DVD a repair DVD or Installation DVD? because I also have the option "Install Now" when I enter it, I am confused.

also, this is the window I get when I press Repair your computer (instead of Install Now) :
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following startup option will be repaired:
Name: Windows Boot Manager
Identifier: {9DEA862C-5CDD-4E70-ACC1-F32B344D4795}

Name: Windows Recovery Environment (recovered)
Path: Recovery\374bb2f8..(bla bla)\Winre.wim
Windows Device: Partition=D: (476837MB)

A copy of the current boot configuration data will be saved as C:\Boot\BCD.Backup.0001

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
as you can see it says something about Partition D: although I don't have it, is it related to the slow computer problem I'm having?

Do you know if your hard drive has a hidden recovery partition that was installed by the computer manufacturer? If it does, that might be the D: partition. Without seeing your disk management it's difficult to know how your hard drive is set up. If you can open disk management, maximize it, and post a screenshot it will probably help to understand things.

The DVD you're using ... if it's an installation DVD then it also contains repair functions. (See the "Note" in this tutorial.)

I have under Disk Managment another "System Reserve" partition sized 100 MB.

About DVD: I am confused because it's not a DVD from Microsoft, it's a DVD that was burnt and written with marker, shouldn't installation DVD come as a DVD with Microsoft labeling on it etc? (or it's because I got OEM version of Windows)

C, D, E etcetera are just drive letters. In registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices it is defined. There is C defined as (just an example): Disk with signature AFC8D312 partition that starts at sector 45619812

In winxp/vista/Windows 7 you can change drive letters!!

You're boot to recovery environment and that's a total different windows environment and uses different registry

I bet you have a partition before C. in winre the first partition is called, second D

So there's no problem with C and D!

Can you boot to advanced boot options and select "repair your computer"? Because that's "Name: Windows Recovery Environment (recovered)" all about.

Best thing to do: Let him repair it.
It doesn't fix the slowliness of pc however

I have a question : I get the option to "Repair Your Computer", I select it and it finds the problem above , right? but when I press cancel, and I get into the System Recovery Options, you get the option "Startup Repair", and this one does not find any problems , is it because these are 2 different things?

*what will happen if I press Install Now?

these are two different problems , I unplugged this second hard drive already I am now only with 1 main hard drive , but you are right, maybe the slow booting is related to what I did on that thread, maybe I damaged the drive while messing with the hard drives, so to all people who help here, you might check the thread as maybe it's related.

update: I did System Restore ,it didn't help - the booting time is still slower than what it used to be, specially on the Welcome screen, also, after I did System Restore about 9 GB disappeared from my hard drive - I had 399 GB free and now I have 391 GB free, where did they disappear?

let me sum up the situation to make it easier :
I felt that booting time was slower than usual, so I entered the DVD I got when I bought the computer: this DVD gives me the option to "Install Now" or "Repair Your Computer", I press Repair Your Computer and get that:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?

The following startup option will be repaired:
Name: Windows Boot Manager
Identifier: {9DEA862C-5CDD-4E70-ACC1-F32B344D4795}

Windows Device: Partition=D: (476837MB)

A copy of the current boot configuration data will be saved as C:\Boot\BCD.Backup.0001

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
but I press cancel and instead I enter the System Recovery Options menu and press there on Startup Repair, but it finds nothing there.
Also, I have a question about this DVD, if it's an installation DVD, should it look like it is? a DVD that is not from Microsoft but a DVD that was burnt by the company I bought the pc from? (is it a fake dvd?)
