Windows 7: Disk read error Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

16 Aug 2012   #1

Win 7 Home Premium x64
Disk read error Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

I know that this has been handled in the past, and I have tried a few things that have
been mentioned (Thanks Shawn!). I am working on a MSI CR620 laptop that is running
Win 7 HP x64. On start up it says to press F3 for recovery, I have done that and have
gone through the recovery, getting the post that windows has been installed completely,
and to press ok to restart, after pressing okay, the computer restarts and I get the
"Disk read error, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart again. I have ordered a recovery disk
from the manufacturer, but I don't have warm fuzzys that it will correct the issue.
