Windows 7: Win 7 boot problem

This happens periodically but it should be able to work using the DOS ISO burned to CD using ImgBUrn at 4x speed. Enough others have used it that I should work, but if not try Seatools.

However since there was no reply to the tests suggested we don't know for sure if every effort was made to repair it using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan and Disk Check. Sometimes repairs can give it enough functionality to recover data.
I think there is a misunderstanding.
You keep suggesting me to try tests I already reported that it didn't work, like the HD diagnostic and disk check.
Though, I appreciate your help.

Using "Raise Data Recovery for NTFS", it seems that I could recover files.
It detected the installed directories hierarchy and allowed me to recover a small test file.
It is not expensive.
Though, it seems I have less important files to recover than I first thought, I only have some photos that were not saved.
So I will consider using this tool and then I will probably reinstall Win 7 as soon as I will find my DVD ;-) as it seems that it won't be possible to recover the Win 7 installed.
Thanks again for all the help provided, I really appreciate it.

Did you see my post #80. I would at least try Seatools after you recover the data if you havn't already. There will be no point reinstalling if the hard drive is bad and un-repairable. If you have a USB flash stick I would try the Non-CD version first as it's from your HD Manfacturer.

If your tried both these options then sorry for repeating it.

How to repair the startup in this case?? READ PLZ

Hi everyone

Well the problem is that i have a hard drive with 2 instalations of windows 7, in two different partitions. I use the first, for games and the second one for music producction. Now i want to delete the first partition wich is the partition of windows 7 for games, because i need more space on my hard drive and i can't play games now.

The problem is that as i have to delete the first partition, and the remaining space i'll give it to the second partition. I think it may possible that the second windows become unbootable.

If this happens, how i can reapair my boot partition again.??

This tutorial shows how to recover the System boot files and the unwanted OS's Hard Drive space into the Win7 you want to keep: Partition Recover Space Used by an Older OS. The steps are the same as for when the unwanted OS/Partition is XP.

It's important to do the steps in order so that after marking the surviving OS partition Active you run the 3 Startup Repairs to make sure it will transfer the System flag to that partition. Then you can safely delete and recover the space of the unwanted partition.

However there are sometimes unknown factors such as a Logical Partition so please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, so we can look it over for you first. Screen Shots

I started a WD extended diagnostic yesterday.
The good news is that it reported no error.
So I suppose the only thing left to do is reformatting the drive and reinstalling Win 7.

If your recovered what data you want then yes it would be the easiest thing to do. If you can start with a completly clean HD I would also suggest doing this using the clean command from the cmd window in WinPE. You can open a cmd window during Windows setup by pressing Shift + F10 or use the Repair your Computer option.

Here's a couple of links if you need them

go into cmd from windows disk and run chkdsk /a
if all is well then reboot into startup repair - if this doesnt work
try a system restore from the windows disk set to when it was working - if this doesnt work
at the cmd line type fixmbr then fixboot - if this doesnt work
you will need to migrate your data to a backup and reimage the os
