Letter on drives are assigned by the OS. Under Windows it may show C: and E:
When you boot from the installation disk it may have another letters. That is why you must find using the dir command.
If under the installation disk it is D: and I: you should use it on the Robocopy command.

Well it finally finished transfering over.
It's funny I plugged the external hd to another computer just to check it and I can see the space missing but I cxan't find a folder named backup or anything.


weird.

Oh!!!


I don't think it made a separate folder.
I think it just mixed the files in with all the other files I already had on the ext hd.


Son of a Gun!


Oh well.
sigh

You do have a COA sticker with the key at the side of your case, don't you?
Lets do a Repair installation. Repair Install - Windows 7 Help Forums
It will reinstall Windows keeping your programs and data.
Can you boot in safe mode?
If you can, copy all Win 7 Installation disk to a folder.
Go to \sources and delete ei.cfg. Deleting this file you can install any of the four version (HBasic, HPremium , Pro or Ultimate).
Run \Setup.exe. Install Pro version as you have the key for it on the COA sticker.

Read again your posts. Did you checked if the heat sink fan is running and if the heat sink is dust free?
