Startup repair couldn't fix the issuses

Hi,

I have recently reinstalled my windows due to the problems I've stated in my other thread. Unfortunetly, new windows did not bring me more luck than the last one. Let's go from the start, during the windows installation, I got this error -''The file or directory C:\$Extend\$Objld is corrupt and unreadable''. I've pressed ok and installation have continued and completed. Today when I booted up my pc, it automaticaly brought me to startup repair which could not fix the issuses but again starts up when my computer restarts. However here are some root causes he reported- ''System volume on disk is corrupt'' and ''Boot critical file D:\Windows\system32\drivers\msisadrv.sys is corrupt.

Help would be greatly appreciated

msisadrv.sys is a system driver file on Windows vista. Did you download Windows Enterprise? It was only for a 90 day evaluation period ....

You may have to return to the original OS you started with.

Monz,

Where did you get your copy of Windows from?

Assuming that you have a genuine/not corrupt, Windows 7 Ultimate, when the installation throws up a "corrupt/unreadable" message, the probability of a failing HDD or faulty motherboard cannot be ruled out.

It would be better you start with checking the HDD with the manufacturer's diagnostic/repair tool and clear it first.

I talked to a guy who knows pretty much about computers and he told me that my HDD is coming to it's end so I've considered buying a new one but i'm wondering if something can be done with this one.

There's really nothing that can be done with a dying HDD other than to back up the data on it ASP before you permanently lose it.

Yep, you need to backup any data that you may feel is there to recover.

I would suggest that you go with a Live Linux CD/ pendrive, boot from it and backup the data to an external drive.

1. Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer by jumanji (Download the latest version of Lucid Puppy (Ubuntu compatible build) ISO and burn it to a CD or create a bootable pen drive with Rufus Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way )

or

2. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...cy-backup.html by Golden

or

3. Emergency Kit - save your files from a dead OS by whs

Choice is yours.

Once you have backed up, check your HDD with the manufacturer's Diagnostic/repair tool. ( If you let us know the manufacturer of your HDD, we may perhaps suggest the tool or you can search the manufacturer's website.)

If it finds faults but could repair it, it may be possible to do a successful install. ( Such a successful install after the HDD repair would indicate that the motherboard HDD controller is not faulty and you can breath a sigh of relief.)

Now take a chance. Your successful install may run without any problem for days or even weeks or months.

If the problem repeats, sometimes a checkdisk will correct it and you may be able to run the system again for days/weeks or even months.

If the problem repeats again, you are now ready to replace the HDD. But till then keep backing up any fresh data that you put in.

(Yep, one of my friends has been running his computer like this for the last three months. I have been/ or he himself has been reviving it periodically - having learnt the techniques from me - but I have told him that next time it happens, no revival but only replacement. Anyway I made him buy an external HDD and backed up all his data with Lucid Puppy - but you know what. I had to read my own guide on the Lucid Puppy way. Such is my wonderful memory.)

Ahoy, matey.

You have a nice friend there who would give you a $200+ OS. Did he also provide you with a Product key?

The error is recognizable and may be a bad installer. What exactly does it say on the disk? Just type out everything as it appears, except the Product Key.

Hi,

I don't understand what you mean in the second part of your post, I thought I gave a pretty good explanation in my first post that i can't get past startup repair when i boot up my pc. I also stated what did startup repair report.
