Windows 7: Help please.

10 Apr 2009   #21

Windows 7 Build 7100 x86
 
 

I want to install from my external hard disk to my primary disk, But it's not booting.
And Booting the ISO will not allow for a 86x upgrade to 64x...
So... Am I out of options now...?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 x2 + x86 + Windows 8.1 x64 x2
 
 

Thanks Swarf,

I knew it was close, just not had time to check out all my feeds and emails

@Akatsui
If you have enough space you might be able to do a fresh install onto a new partition no method will allow an x86 to x64 so a fresh install is essential anyway

You may have to go into bios and change the boot order. Some bioses allow booting from usb external hard drives. If yours does, place it before the primary hd in the list.

Yeah but I can't burn to a DvD Nor will my external hard disk boot the setup.exe.

I'll try the bios idea.

Changing boot order won't work, Still giving the NTLDR is missing thing.
I guess my external hard disk is not bootable. [yet]

youd have to format it to add the system files. Make sure theres nothing on it you want to keep.
