Windows 7: unable to use Windows 7 System repair Disc

unable to use Windows 7 System repair Disc

Hi mates,

I have a PC Fujitsu Esprimo desktop and I went to install windows 8 after formatting only the primary drive C:

Windows 8 wasn't what I expected so I decided to go back to windows 7. When I tried to rest the PC to factory settings using the repair disc I made before on windows 7, it shows an error that prevent from using the CD " there are no drives installed". so I went to use the USB boot and also got similar error "disk error, please restart your PC".

I got my Desktop from Japan and tried to contact the support for this issue, but it seems that I have to pay around $20 bucks to ask a specialist for help. so I decided to discuss this issue here before doing that...

Now I could install windows 7, but using Microsoft ISO home premium version and activating it with my product key. The issue is still there and being unable to rest things back as original. If you want to ask me why I want to do that!! Then the answer is: I want windows 7 to run correctly since there are a lot of incompatibility issues with the hardware; sounds, network adapter, Audio system, and etc,...

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks a lot, and sorry for my bad English

Cheers

P.S: I believe I have deleted the recovery partition on my hard disk by mistake which didn't have a letter...

You should have made a disk image of 7 before you started. You don`t use a repair disc to get back to where you were, you would use your Recovery discs. Did you make them before you started ? A repair disc only repairs your Windows 7 install, hence the name repair disc.

Did you try to run factory restore from the manufacturers bios screen ? Does it still show up ?

Hi addRAM,

Thanks for the comments. to be honest with you, I forgot to make a disk image of my win7... You are right, thanks for the reminder about repair disk meaning think I was too tired when I posted this thread.

my pc came without recovery dvd/cd, sadly. I made only a backup though.

I tried to run factory restore using f8, but f8 itself doesn't work anymore. Also, I have to use win7 iso burned dvd to go to repair your pc option. The other thing is that when I go to recovery option, it gives an error. I will take a screenshot and post it here soon. also other options for the repair doesn't work...

be back with more details soon.

Cheers

Update:
my PC can now point to recovery partition (partition E), but I deleted my files there accidentally and started using Recuva to recover the deleted partition....

I don't know if there is better way to restore the lost partition....!! please suggest any software...

Thanks

Why not use the Fujitsu Reinstall DVD?

I don't have any!! The PC didn't come with any cd/dvd at all. Besides, my original win7 home premium is Japanese and some drivers like the ambient light sensor works with the japanese version, sadly.

I wish I could get a copy of the Japanese version.

I don't think it would work if I used US version of win7 home premium because the Japanese pre-installed softwares won't be there in addition to incompatibility of some drivers.

Make sure you're using the correct key for running Factory Recovery. If in doubt check on the first screen or in your Manual for your exact model which you'll find on the Fujitsu Support Downloads webpage for that model.

If the key is definitely F8 then it is wiped out when you reinstalled C since the F8 options are installed with the OS. You should have shrunk C to do a Dual Boot to try Win8.

If you can't run Recovery and didn't make your disks or a backup image, then your options are to either order Recovery Disks from Fujitsu Support, or get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

The ISO provided in Step 1 to burn to DVD or write to flash stick doesn't appear to be available in Japanese, so you may have to search further on the internet to find your licensed version to reinstall.
