Windows 7: Can't Boot Windows 7 anymore!!!!

Can't Boot Windows 7 anymore!!!!

Hey Everyone,

So here is my problem. I recently deleted a partition on my second hard-drive that had Linux on it. Now my windows won't boot. I found out that my MBR got corrupted some how through deleting the partition. I tried using windows repair, but its not even detecting windows 7 on the HD. I tried going to ASUS to DL the drivers to load up but nothing is working. I am not sure what to do here. Anyone know if maybe i need to mess with the bios or is there a specific driver to load up in repair.

Try this:
boot to the windows install disk, and at the install now menu type shift+f10
then type the following commands one at a time and press enter after each one:

bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /rebuildbcd

then shut down, restart and your problem will be solved

Also, you might want to check on the status of your hard disk. I got plenty of bad sectors after some constant reformat / reinstall of OS on this PC. On the command box, type: chkdsk <drive letter> or chkdsk <drive letter> /F /R. I'm still having troubles with the hard disk. I'll be ringing this PC to the shop where we bought it since it still under its warranty. .

It seems your HD got loose or its slot is busted. Why not re-place it at some other slot?

i unplugged and replugged in all my SATA drives...IDK. So I tried to install Win 7 on the old HD with the clear partition. Install worked, still wont boot it up. The other HD is unplugged to avoid issues. I ran win actually detected the Windows install, but the BIOS is still not detecting the OS. It detects the HD in the BIOS but express gate fails to load it. I am about to break down and buy a new HD and start a completely clean install. But I fear that when I flashed the bios to try and fix the problem it cause more issues.

Dual-boot: Windows 7 HP 32-bit SP1 & Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP2.

I would certainly say there is something wrong with your hard-drive.
