ALT-F10 isn't working, I'm not sure why my computer's acting seriously bad.

If you want to know now to mount ISOs click the link below

cmd keeps saying that 'command' can't be recognized as an internal or external command. If I just do a clean installation of windows 7, will it be able to boot normally again? I'm not worried much about my files in there.

Naw, i already burnt the iso to a dvd, the installation disc works fine, but in startup repair it says ( D: ) is not ready when I try to switch it from X: in command prompt. That's the only drive thats on my computer besides x: so it must have my system files, but it can't access it.

Try this

In the command prompt that shows
X:\Sources
Type in

Code:
bcdedit | find "osdevice"
Note   Note
the | pipe symbol is the key above Enter . Hold shift down and press the key with \ on it

Press the enter key after you inputted the command . It will tell you the drive letter of Windows . It might say its os device partition=D:

It might see your system reserved partition as C or possibly your recovery partition as C, might explain why it`s showing you a D.

Carry on Vista

It says "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found.

Andrew - is this part of the same issue?

Can't find drivers during Windows 7 ultimate x64 installation?

If so, keep it all in one thread please - makes it easier for everyone.
