I made a disk from the second link, I put in, but its not doing anything still getting

Disk Boot Failure, Insert System DIsk and Press Enter.

My only options for Boot Devices are

Removable Hard Disk and NVIDIA Boot Agent already in that order.

You need to configure your BIOS to boot from CD, or use the one-time BIOS boot menu key to trigger it.

If this fails after repeated tries, then burn another CD using ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify.

Is "Removable" the CD/DVD if not then there is no option for me to do so, does this mean there is something wrong with my DVD Drive?

If so, then I will try reburning I guess.

Do you have a combo drive for both CD/DVD, as the Repair disk is a CD?

If your CD/DVD drive is not registering in the BIOS then try checking its cables are firmly attached, or swap in another good drive.

So removable is not the CD/DVD drive? yes it is a combo drive, and I checked all the cables.

Not a power issue as I can still open and close it.

Where is Avast!?
Can Avast boot time virus scan be considered here?
Thanks!

Not if Win7 cannot boot. He needs to use a bootable CD AV scan.

Greg,
I've not followed the thread here, but MS now has a standalone bootable virus/malware remover.

PUT SYSTEM SWEEPER ON A USB STICK


System Sweeper, https://connect.microsoft.com/systemsweeper, allows you to start an infected PC and perform an offline scan to identify and remove viruses, rootkits and other advanced malware. System Sweeper is a free standalone, bootable malware and virus remover from Microsoft.

Safety Scanner, Microsoft Safety Scanner - Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses Free, is free, downloadable, provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

If the target computer has a working internet connection, then you may prefer to use the Safety Scanner.


Download System Sweeper (about 576 kB):
https://connect.microsoft.com/systemsweeper

Insert 256 MB or larger USB stick into a usb port.

Run the downloaded program--mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe

Choose the option to install to USB.
Caution: The install program will format the usb stick.

The install program will download about 200 mB more.

After the install is finished, leave the stick in the usb slot.

Run the program you downloaded once again.

This 2nd run, and any subsequent runs, will download the very latest anti-virus definitions (about 60 mB).

To keep System Sweeper up-to-date, simply reinsert the usb stick and run the installation program again.

The initial, full scan by System Sweeper can easily take a couple of hours, but subsequent quick scans will take only a few minutes.

Remember your computer is being checked for all types of malware and be very thoroughly checked.

Yea my computer is not recognizing my CD Drive at all, currently trying the virus scan, question is there anyway to run System Restore from a USB without an actual CD?

One step at a time.

After system sweeper finishes, let me know the results.
