Windows 7: Trying to do clean install on new ssd but error keeps coming up.

bigmck, I took out the the pieces of ram to see if either was bad and there was no change, I'm a little hesitant to resort to using a torrent just yet, though I should note that earlier this year I used the same disk and it worked fine on another drive.


AddRam, I set everything to defaults and burned the wizard partition boot CD, but when trying to boot from it I get a black screen saying BOOTMGR is missing and tells me to restart.

So neither the Win 7 CD nor the Partition Wizard Book Disc will boot. That eliminates something wrong with the Win 7 CD. Let me think about this. == Just to confirm, your CD/DVD is your first boot in your Bios. == When you tried to boot the Partition Wizard disc, what happened? Did you get a blue screen or just not much of anything? == Does your CD drive turn the Win 7 disc (or any disc)? You can tell by putting the disc where you can read the writing. After you try the boot, has it turned any?

Yes the CD drive is first to boot, when trying to boot the partition wizard disk I get a black screen saying BOOTMGR is missing and asks me to reboot and even after rebooting and trying again I get the same black screen about BOOTMGR. Yes the CD drive turns both disks.

The reason I ask about the CD drive being the first boot is that the "No Bootmgr" sounds just like it is going to the SSD first. == When you put the CD in the drive and boot, do you ever see the prompt "Press any Key to boot from CD/DVD"? == About how long does it take before you see the Black Screen?

It's also possible to get that message from having a non bootable disc, how did you burn the CD?

bigmck, I see the "press any key to boot from CD/DVD" every time I use the win7 install disk but not the partition wizard disk, with the partition wizard disk I get the BOOTMGR i missing screen.


Derekimo, I inserted the disk into my laptop when asked what to do I set up the "burn files to disk" option and picked the "as a bootable CD/DVD" option (the other option was "as a usb"), once I placed the partition wizard file onto the disk I went up to "manage" and selected "finish disk burn".

Let's try getting into the System Recovery Menu -- Use this tutorial System Recovery Options You will be using Option Two because you have a Win 7 Install Disc. Follow the tutorial closely and see if the Repair works.
== Continue with the Partition Recovery disc that you are working with Derekimo. I don't want you to "Stretch you into Different Ways". If that does not work, then try the System Recovery.

when clicking the "repair your computer" option on the install disk from option two I get an error massage saying "This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair."

The install disc is the same one that you installed Windows with, is that correct? == Does the Install Disc have SP 1 on it or was SP 1 added later through Updates later? If the disc does not have SP1, this is a possible reason it did not work. If your disc does not have SP1, go to this site and download your version which does have SP1 and we can hope this will work to repair you PC.

You should be using the boot menu key to bring up the boot menu and not relying on the bios.

If the PW boot cd does not show up then you did not create it properly, all you have to do is download the iso file and burn to cd

use this simple program.
