Windows 7: Broke my Windows by activating a partition :(

18 Apr 2011   #21

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 ; Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

Check cable connection!
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
This is a Network Boot - I wouldn't worry too much about it , it is mainly used in Businesses or Schools for booting from a Server to reinstall Windows

Please download and burn to CD or write to USB stick now the tool needed to Repair Win7 if you don't have an Installer: System Repair Disc - Create

If you have the 100mb System Reserved boot partition then the Repair console should also be on Advanced Boot Options accessed by tapping F8 key at bootup.

Best method to write to stick: Win2Flash
