Good work. But are you sure the files are intact on the drive you copied them? Look first

Not PW, but using the Win7 flash stick installer he was able to browse in last night and found his files. He'd said his stick wasn't big enough to hold them when he tried to Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console .

You may need Flashplayer or an Add-On to play it on the machine you're using.

Is Factory Recovery completing from boot? Which option did you choose?

You may need more codecs: Install Shark007's FREE Codec solutions - Windows 7 codecs

Are you ready to run Factory Recovery now? It may not work so we may need to help you Clean Reinstall with the WIn7 installer provided - unless you made the Recovery Disks as a backup.
