Windows 7: Total identified Windows installations: 0 What do I do next?

Total identified Windows installations: 0 What do I do next?

My Gateway NV79 running 64 bit Windows 7 won't boot and I've tried startup repair and the following steps below and it tells me that the total identified windows installations: 0. I have no clue what to try next. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

bootrec.exe /FixMbr

If successful, you should be greeted with the message The operation completed successfully. Thatís it! Your Master Boot Record has been repaired.

While the above command does fix the MBR, and sometimes that is enough, there still might be an error with the system partitionís boot sector and Boot Configuration Data (BCD). This might occur if you have tried to install another operating system alongside Windows 7, such as Windows XP. To write a new boot sector, try the following command:

bootrec.exe /FixBoot

If you are still faced with your Windows 7 installation not being detected during start up, or if you wish to include more than one operating system choice to your systemís boot list, you can try the following command to rebuild your BCD:

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

The above command will scan all your disks for other operating systems compatible with Windows 7 and allow you to add them to your systemís boot list. If this fails, you may need to backup the old BCD folder* and create a new one in its place with the following commands:


bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
c:
cd boot
attrib bcd -s -h -r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd
