Windows 7: Can't boot into Windows 7 Repair Disc

Can't boot into Windows 7 Repair Disc

Hello Seven Forums users,

I just created a system repair disc by clicking "Create a system repair disc" on my computer.
The disc was successfully created, then I went to boot it up in VirtualBox and I get a Toshiba error: F3-F100-0003.

How could this be?
I don't think VirtualBox or the repair disc would have anything to do with Toshiba.
I created this disc with a factory preinstallation of Windows 7 on a Toshiba laptop.

Did Toshiba put a custom disc image on the computer which will be burned to the disc?
Does VirtualBox use the host computers BIOS? (maybe not possible because there was a Windows 7 cursor in front of the error box)
Does Microsoft use Toshiba technology in their repair discs?

If you can help, that would be great.

Are you still running the Toshiba factory preinstalled Windows 7? If so this is a corrupt install that throttles Windows 7 native performance with bloatware and useless duplicate utilties all riding on the back of the OS.

For this reason most tech enthusiasts will not run such an install and instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps in the blue link will assure you get and keep a perfect install if you use the tools and methods given.

The installer for your licensed verison is provided in Step 1 which you can also use for repairs.

So you're saying I have burnt a Toshiba utility onto my CD?

Who knows if Toshiba modifies the Repair CD when it's generated. They mess with many of Windows 7's other utilities so may have modified that. This is why you should Clean Reinstall to get rid of all the factory mess and enjoy Windows 7 in its native perfect state.

The installer which was also provided can be used for repairs from its System Recovery Options.
