Thanks heaps for the reply, However how i do the above if i can not load windows. i have tried all the system recovery option that windows auto loads but they all come up with error messages i have aqlso tried to boot directly from disk however i can not update/repair because you have to do this with windows already loaded. This could be part of the issue i had when i installed windows 7 where windows did not recognize any hard drives to install too, BIOS recognised HDD as IDE but was connected through SATA, i had to find SATA driver for HDD and load onto flash drive on another PC and load drivers for HDD in windows 7 installaion.

In that case you might just have to do a fresh clean install.Make sure dirvers you install if not for seven are installed in compaibility mode Compatibility Mode Good luck with it. Fabe
