Windows 7: Windows Wont Boot

17 Feb 2011   #11

Win 7 Pro x64 SP1 OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7

I'd go for a repair install. You will still have your documents, files, programs, everything! After the installation is done. Use the link from Maguscreed's post.

Windows 7

i am not able to do a repair install as it was installed in the shop and i was not given the disc. the only thing i have close to that is the startup repair partion you mentioned earlier for Restoreing to factory defaults ect when this ordeal is over im going to make sure i partion my C drive so that i can always have a backup of my favourite games ect. so if there is a way for me to do a repair install without the disc and without an external hardrive im all eyes!

By the way i just wanted to add i already tried to partion the drive but it wont let me do it in safemode and windows wont boot up in Normal mode (cant play games in safemode ): ) so if you knew how i could partion the drive so i could backup my games and save my self the 100+ gigabyte download in safemode thats almost as good as a fix to my problems lulz

You should have been given a windows disc (even if it was a copy) with the machine you purchased from the shop.

Fixing this will be difficult without that resource.
