Window crush and stuck on repair mood after installing boot camp drive

Hello


I got very strange situation with my Imac

So i installed new windows, and then i installed the boot camp drivers
Right after that my Imac crush and send me to windows restore/repair page
So first i try to restore, the results was un successful, and the its sent me to windows repair, so when i try to repair its say done and after restart i getting back to the same repair screen
I try to start with safe mood, and again same repair page, nothing is working, the only option that i have in my head is to change the boot order,
so i am now on edit boot options

EDIT BOOT OPTIONS
edit windows boot options for: windows 7
path: \windows\system32\winload.exe
partition: 2
hard disk: 69a8
[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN

I try to change the "NOEXECUTE=OPTIN" to "DEBUGPORT=USB" and still nothing happened

Any one know what other option i can try ? i am getting crazy already

Thanks for the reply

I am trying to boot camping with windows, and i have no option to boot the osx, cause for some reason it was deleted (in my older installation)

Not sure what is the model, but i bought the Mac early 2013, 1.4GHz dual‑core, 2.7GHz 21 Inch

Thanks for the support

So is your goal to have OSX and windows? If you boot while holding the option key after it shows the grey screen when turning on do you see another disk besides windows there?

The option menu is built into the efi firmware and will still be there, look at this chart. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201255 to reinstall you will want to do a clean install again like this.

If you insert the windows disk and hold down 'alt' on startup, the windows install will kick in. As previously mentioned, if you want to install Windows 7, the latest Bootcamp drivers are required. These are a .exe found on the Snow Leopard disk (or torrent) and will make your touchpad, sound etc work well in Win 7. Ignore the thing about SL it will still work, but you do need to torrent the right bootcamp drivers or it will not work, what boot camp drivers did you use to make the problem?

Oh then use option at boot and you will get the startup manger and you pick the usb. It's listed on that chart how to do it. Are you using an apple keyboard or one with windows logo?

No before you get into windows you will get this, you turn off the mac then turn it on, right after it makes the chime noise hold the option key till a screen like this shows up.
