EasyBCD solved the problem, I had to pay $40 for the Repair DVD. When I saw on screen BootMGR Repaired, I knew it was fixed.

Formatting the drive etc, was all not working, no matter what rescue DVD I had or USB drive I had, nothing worked, I was denied at every angle. Bootrec didn't solve the problem, it was a week I won't forget.

I need to find a valid, robust, partition software that won't cause this mess again.

I'm surprised that wiping the drive didn't let you clean install, but thank you for posting back with your results.

I couldn't wipe the drive, it wouldn't allow me, from my own Windows7 discs, to the Digital Rivers ISO boot discs, all the way to any other software programs boot disc, I was plain out denied. You always want to go with free options first, which is what I did, I was skeptical about the BCD solution, but it does work.

I recommend trying all solutions from this thread, which are your cost free solutions. If those don't work, then you will have to pay $40 for BCD and let it fix it for you, once you are in that much of a bind, what is left !

Hello Shawn have got an oldish (not too old) XP machine that has thousands of dollars worth of CAD software on it and it stalls at the welcome screen normal boot and the starting Windows in safe mode any guise. Have checked the machine for obvious hard ware failure and cannot find any.
So could your tutorial be used in some way on this problem please?

Hello John,

I'm sorry, but this tutorial wouldn't apply to XP.

You might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot in XP to hopefully go back to before this happened.
