Hello RJ,

If you like, you could use OPTION ONE to create yourself a Windows 7 installation DVD or USB flash drive that you could boot from to do a clean install of Windows 7 with at boot instead. The TIP section tells you how to get an official Windows 7 ISO to create this from.

Hope this helps,

If this is a store bought computer, then what brand and model number is your PC?

If it's one you built yourself, then what brand and model is the motherboard?

I'll see if I may be able to find out more about it, and what key to press and boot to enter the "Boot Menu" to be able to select to temporarily boot from the USB flash drive.

I found the motherboard's manufacturer page below.

ECS Web Site > GeForce6100PM-M2 (V2.0)

English Manual: http://download.ecsusa.com/dlfileecs...2%20(2_0A).pdf


At boot, see if you have an option to press a F (1-10) key to enter the "Boot Menu". If so, do that to select to boot from the USB flash drive for only that one time.


If not, then you would press the Delete (DEL) key at boot to enter BIOS (setup)

Make sure you have all USB options enabled in your BIOS like on page 41 in the manual.

Select to have the "Removable" (USB flash drive) for "First Boot Device" like on page 32 in the manual.
Name:  boot.jpg

Save your BIOS settings and exit.

After you restart the first time during installation, you will need to go back into your BIOS settings and change the "First Boot Device" back to your "Hard Disk". If you don't, it will just boot from the USB again and start the installation over from scratch.

The repair disc isn't for installation its to repair boot issues and such . It won't repair the actual installation . You would need a installation disc for that .

I would recommend fixing the boot loop first.

Since you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you might consider using XP Mode virtual machine with Windows Virtual PC in Windows 7 instead of an actually dual booting with XP. It's a lot easier to use this way.
