Windows 7: Windows 7 not booting.

21 Aug 2014   #11

Windows 7 premium 64bit


I made a bootable DVD, and nothing has changed... I do not receive the window with "press any key to boot from DVD or USB".

I just get the same thing. Black screen with only the cursor, no command keys, nothing. I do not hear my CDROm running until after i receive the black screen. I would also like to know which ISO file you would recommend for my system, in that list of ISO's. Who knows, maybe i downloaded the wrong one..

Once again, thank you for the speedy responses!

Windows 7 premium 64bit

I have figured my situation out, turns out, i just needed to find the sweet spot when to press the command key for the startup repair... It did not give a prompt when to push it so it took me about 150 times restarting my comp and pressing F8 at different times, until it finally went to starup repair!

Thanks for the help guys!
