Hmm, an even worse bios than I remembered.

But ok for now.

Now you need a Windows 7 DVD.

And I guess you have 32bit installed right?

Then you need a 32bit Windows installation DVD, or ISO to make a DVD.

I am going to bed dude. 5:14am here.

Will check back tomorrow.

In your 1st post, you did not say what build # of Win7 you had on the computer when this all messed up. How did you install win7 originally ?

None of those.

First we will see if the current OS can be repaired.

If that fails, we will go from there.

Good night
