Windows 7: Windows 7 Major Issues

Did you follow the tutorial I posted earlier? That would reset the entire drive and you would no longer have 3 start-up choices. The boot partition, or more specifically the boot-manager on that partition, has retained evidence of all of your installation attempts.

I would do a complete wipe of the drive following the tutorial SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation and then reinstall Windows.

Afterward you should have just the latest install as your choice on boot-up.

Is it possible that the manufacturers recovery partion wasn't tanked and itwas just the partition that was being written to ie c:\ that was tanked during the power down? If so a recovery procedure should be available from the manufacturers website?


Just a thought...
