Windows 7: Impossible to restart - wrong use of my7bootloader

Impossible to restart - wrong use of my7bootloader

Hello,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN laptop, and just upgraded to a tower . I asked a friend how to prepare a bootable usb key with windows 7 64 bits for this new PC. Unfortunately I think he mistook and, with the ISO file, he provided me a software: "my 7 bootloader ultimate"; which I thought was the boot creator (I'm not really good at this... )

So I naively ran the my 7 bootlader on my laptop... I choosed "Activate Windows 7 (emulation SLIC)"
The only clever thing I did: I didn't restart at this time. And fortunately, thanks to this forum I understood how to really do a bootable usb key, and even managed to do a 64bit boot from my W7 32bit.

And now I just restarted the laptop:
-"VAIO screen" (a few seconds)
-Black screen, with only a small dash...
-Nothing more happens... I'm really in a bad situation.


I hope someone can help me on this, thanks in advance

I just have this black screen with white dash... and I can't write anything like if it was a command screen.

Ahh yes, I misread your post. Can you boot into Safe Mode?

Mmmm....I'm afraid it sounds like you to need to perform a clean install from the USB. I see no other options.

Lets try something. Insert the installation USB:

1. Boot from it as if you were going to install.
2. Try a Repair Install using this guide:

OK so I guess to boot on the DVD player.

Now i have to choose which boot... what do you think?:

-The laptop was given with VISTA and I think an upgrade DVD for W7, so I have a DVD1 where I find some folders "Vista" and "W7"; I have also another DVD2 "upgrade to W7"

-A long time ago I also did the VAIO "recovery DVDs (3 of them)

Also, Maybe My7bootlader may have changed the registration number..?

Thanks
