Windows 7: Windows 7 Startup change?

29 Aug 2012   #11


Tap the HP ESC or F9 key at boot repeatedly, choose the CD drive to boot. Do you then get a prompt to Press any key to boot CD? Hit Enter and see if it loads.

Run Startup Repair a few times to see if it restores the animation.

If it doesn't ask Baarod by messaging him at the link I gave you to write you the Commands to run to restore Win7 boot animation, as he did for me for Win8 in a Dual Boot issue we had at EightForums recently which I linked above. It may even be the same commands.

That was the first time I haven't had to reinstall on this issue.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Service Pack 1

I didn't see a boot from CD or DVD when I tried f9 nor the ESC key. So I just PMed Baaron on Seven Forums, although I think I'm to join Eight forums so he can get the message. Is this correct?

Reboot. Repeatedly tap F9 after BIOS messages appear. Choose Repair. Login and select command prompt. Run these commands where X is your boot drive and WIN is the path to the Windows 7 directory:
bcdboot WIN /s X /v
bootsect /nt60 SYS /mbr
bootsect /nt60 SYS

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Service Pack 1

I got the issue fixed everyone. My bootres.dll file wasn't working right so it didn't give me the Windows 7 Startup file. So my friend gave me hers and deleted mines. And the startup worked like a charm again.

What about the commands Baarod gave you to try? Did you try them at all?
