just installing RTM of Windows 7 to trial until my copy gets here. Hmm having a strange problem,
i have installed os first time, after about 3 days, i get the read disc error on startup. (no safemode / F8 option)
now this has happened 2 more times after i had reinstalled. all about 5 days apart (multiple restarts and shutdown)
i can't seem to find the source of the problem.
in the repair setup of the Windows 7 disc, i have done a startup repair, and it couldn't find any problems, "os loaded successful" log produced.
now if i use cmd and bootrec.exe /osscan on my c:/
it says zero OSs installed/found
although windows does detect it within the repair utility and when loading sata drivers
what am i doing wrong?
and why would it do this every few days after i reinstall the OS. its weird.
Harddrive has been tested, no bad sectors, all scans of disc complete successful.
is it the BCDmanager? and how do i edit that at boot?
bootrec.exe /fixboot and the other options do not work!
also i does seem like my other drive letter have changed in boot CMD, however the os partition is still C:/
