Windows 7: SSD System Drive No Longer Booting After Attaching External Toaster

I tried booting to the disc again and using bootsect.exe /nt60 all which claimed to have identified all valid Windows partitions, however once I rebooted to the drive it was the same thing.

There's no way plugging a toaster into a PC can do this...I've literally sneakernetted them around from PC to PC to pull or push data.

OK. Lets try this:

1. Download the bootable version of Partition Wizard 8 here
2. Write it to CD/DVD using CDBurnerXP or to USB flash drive using Rufus
3. Boot from the CD/DVD/USB.
4. Once PW8 opens, take a screencapture using the menu option shown below.
5. Save it and upload in your next reply.

OK, after drilling down in their website to find the actual bootable ISO and not an executable, I got it booted onto the other machine (all while fighting multiple blue screens on this thing.

However, there's no option to take a screengrab so I had to use my camera, I hope it helps.

It's got to be something with the bootsector. I've tried bootsect.exe /nt60 and others but nothing. All the data is there, just not bootable.

Very frustrating day with both of my machines! lol

I once fried an XP1800 when I failed to attach the heatsink properly but I've never toasted one.
