After installing windows 7 my pc goes to system recover

So the title pretty much says it all, I have a Quad-Core AMD Phenom 9500, nvidia GTS 250, 3GB or ram and I don't understand why it does this.. any help?

Not as obvious as you think

Are you talking about this window?



If so, did it ever work or had it done this ever since you installed Win 7?

Have you tried any of the options listed?

Try booting into Safe Mode and loading any drivers erroring in Device manager, Event Viewer or Diagnostics Performance log.

Nope, I had windows vista Home Premium so I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and after the whole setup it gives me a different thing then what you posted. I've formatted previous pc's for windows xp and I never gotten this error...

This is my system
Newegg.com - Gateway GT5662 Phenom X4 9500(2.2GHz) 3GB DDR2 500GB ATI Radeon HD 2400XT Windows Vista Home Premium - Desktop PCs

Only thing is that I took out the video card and put in a GTS 250, would I have to flash my BIOS?

ALSO I have a partition that says RECOVERY and I know thats for windows vista, should I delete that? Could that be the reason?

Yes you can delete the Vista recov partition if you want since it is disabled after Windows 7 install.

Are you booting the Windows 7 installer, choosing Custom install, and using Drive Tools to delete all, create New partition(s) and format before installing Windows 7 to first partition?

If so, please post back the exact error you are getting.

Do you have onboard graphics so you can disable the video card for install if necessary? You might also try loading the driver now if you can get into Safe Mode. Or load it into installer at Custom drives screen>Load Drivers link.

Hey greg thanks for the reply, I got it to work! Checking over everything again I saw that the recovery partition was set as the primary one, and the partition with the OS was not. So I figured thats why it always starts up first, so I deleted it and I can now access my windows Thanks greg for your help!

Good job.

I'm sure since it is starting up that your Windows 7 partition now reads System Active Boot in as it should.

Did it repair itself at restart or did you repair it to write the System MBR to Windows 7?

It repaired itself. I was so relieved too I just need to make a backup disc though. Thanks again.
