And when you choose the 1st option at the top of the list, P4, it does not boot the repair disc, and start loading files, then bring you bring up a window that has a repair my computer option on it ?

Yes, that's right. No files are loaded and I don't get the two blue windows that you show. Instead, I get a black screen with white lettering, saying "Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and press another key."

To simulate that I open and close the DVD tray and get "Reboot and Select a proper Boot Device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot Device, and press a key."

These two messages go round in a loop. Its the same for each of my two System Repair Discs. I then restart normally on the button on the box.

Thanks.

You would look in Disk management to see if you have an EFI system partition or a system reserved partition on the Windows 7 hard drive.

OK then, boot into windows normally and post the entire shot of Disk Management as Greg has requested.

I still don`t understand why the disc isn`t working in either situation.

Are you getting a "Disc created successfully" popup when you finish creating the disc ?

Here is what I think you wanted:

I am fairly sure that I got a "Disc created successfully". To be certain I will make another System Repair Disc tomorrow.

Google tells me "The EFI specification has been made into a general standard known as UEFI." So it looks like its not an outdated feature. (My computer was built for me in April last.)

Its (C drive (0 in the above clip) is a 256 GB SSD

Thanks to both of you.

Have a look in the iso with 7-zip and see if you have boootmgr.efi in there. It is easy to spot. IIrc it writes the iso to cd then deletes it.

In that case, pop the cd in the drive and have a look at it.

It should look like this, but I doubt it.

Yous have an EFI System partition so would boot any Win7 disk as an EFI device.

I think your idea to make another disk is best.

"ISO" is described via Google as " An ISO image (or .ISO file) is a computer file that is an exact copy of an existing file system.". This sounds like a System Image File, made by W7's backup routine. If so, I have a copy of that.

CNET describes 7-Zip as "7-Zip is a utility program to help you extract compressed files and create your own compressed files in several different formats....."

On the other hand, by "pop it in the drive" you probably mean my System Repair DVD. Correct?

I have downloaded 7-zip and it has 2 versions: 7zFM and 7zG, both applications.

Which should I use please?

(I asked google what IIrc meant, thinking it software, and found out! For those non-techies on this forum, it means "If I recall correctly" !!!)
