Problems Reinstalling Windows7
Okay so i previously had a install of windows 7 that was running fine. Yesterday I got an BOOTMGR IS MISSING error after cleaning my PC. So I grab the disc and try to do the option of startup repair to no avail.
These next problems are happening at the window I try to select a hard drive to install windows7 onto.
Now I am thinking which hard drive can I afford to format the most. So I format it and try a fresh install, nothing. Then I try it on the hard drive that originally had windows 7 on it after formatting it and nothing. So now I have formatted 3 hard drives cause I am going crazy trying to get this worked out and I am getting the same message every time.
The message I am getting is along the lines of unable to create or find a system partition. Check setup log for more information.
This is the message I received even after I created a 40gb partition.
I love this OS but it has single handedly, with my apparent incompetence erased more of my files than any other thing that has happened to my computer over the past 8 years. I am only thankful that I cannot access all my drives from this menu because I surely would have tried. It is obviously to late I guess for the files I have already formatted, but I have papers I need to type and I cannot use this computer to do them, all the more reason to find out what the problem is with mine. I am in a time crunch here.
