Windows 7: Trying to restore laptop..wouldn't boot this morning..

27 Feb 2012   #21

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

I tried the above remedies with no luck... So i did a clean install on another drive, keeping this one for data retrieval once i get my key programs reloaded.

Glad i did save the original drive as win7 insisted on all generic drivers. This saved a lot of time.

Thanks all for your efforts and expertise.

You're very welcome TareyWolf.

As inconvenient as it is, a clean install is often the quickest way to solve an unsurmountable problem.

Thanks for the update too.
