Hello there lordocoo Welcome to the Se7en Forums!

Instead of resorting to the system recovery option that should be seen in the user's manual and generally not getting a recovery disk included you may be able to use the recovery disks for 7 available at Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs — The NeoSmart Files

Basically those are ISO images you download and burn to a cd-r or even write to usb flash with a program like UltraISO in order to use the startup repair tool. The option for creating one is also now seen in 7 when Windows is running. But first you have to get 7 back on it's feet.

The factory restore option will tend to reformat the C primary and finish off with a fresh install of 7 which means you lose any files you want to keep. Give the repair disk a try.

Hi there, I'm still very happy with my XP Pro, but I thought I'd set up a dual boot with Win7 ultima 64 and check it out. So I popped in another hdd that was sitting idly in a drawer and installed 7 on it. I fully expected that Win7 would be able to see there's an XP installation and create a...
