Still continuing.....

Theres a very easy way to add RE options in the boot menu.

1) One needs 1 file- winre.wim. Winre can be made in WAIK or simply extracted from the install dvd. Its inside install.wim (DVD\Sources\install.wim), so just mount install.wim with imagex and copy off the winre.wim file (about 150 mb size).

2) Create a folder on any drive say D:\Sources and paste winre.wim above into it.

4) In Easybcd, add a new boot menu entry of the WINPE type, name it something appropriate and point it to D:\Sources\winre.wim. Save settings.

5) Done. Now when you reboot, there'll be an option called <whatever name you gave>, selecting it will take you to the system recovery options.

If you dont use easybcd, then you'll need to copy off Boot.sdi as well from the install dvd and paste it into C:\boot, then configure bcdedit manually.

PS: Admins, please feel free to delete/move if inappropriate.

Shawn,

Thanks so much for that info. It sounds like that will fix my problem. I will try what you said when I get home from work tonight.

Finally got it working

Have a Dell620 desktop with a USB keyboard. I got the boot menu to load by watching carefully the Dell's start menu (F2-___ and F12- ____) and just before (or as it was just finishing) hit the F8 key repeatedly.

when i get to the screen when i need to click F8 i click it and its returns me to this:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings,and then click ''Next.''
3. Click ''repair your computer.''

File: \windows\system32\winload.exe

Status: 0xc000000e

Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

Enter:Continue Esc:Exit

Hello Crawle, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's basically telling you that you need to perform a Startup Repair at boot.


Hope this helps,
Shawn

In that case, you could download any one of the latest official Windows 7 with SP1 ISO files here: Microsoft: Windows 7 Direct Download Links, and use Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool to create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive with the ISO to see if you may be able to do a startup repair with it.
