    Ok I think at this point the only fix would be a fresh install of Win7 which I don't think Im capable of as I believe Dell does not have the drivers available anymore and I again even though I had done a few times in the past I think it would be just too much of a pain.

    Being the Acronis can bring back from a Win non boot situation as well as receive a image I may as well leave it that way. I have run ckdsk as well as scannow and that did look good.

    Your hard disk 0 is divided into partitions. One of those partitions has been allocated the letter C.

    "a" is a folder on partition C

    The stuff inside the "a" folder looks like it is connected to a chromium based internet browser.

    Ok I'm on my cell, what happened is I went into msconfig and went from selective startup to Norma. Restated and got the original have to load win disc to repair and then get the message disc in not comparable. So I fan not even start, u tried the acronis boot from win option and same prob.

    So now I'm doing s full recovery from acronis. I choose a backup from 2021.

    Will report back.

    I think a lot of this stated when I bought a new hard drive last week, it would not format and made grinding noise.
    I forgot it was in my dock that was on when I restated the pc..

    Could that cause anything?

    Back later if I get back to win os again

    Well that was a fail, I tried to burn a rescue disc and same error. Will the msconfig > normal startup and see is that has the same error

    Well back online for a few, tried to burn a rescus disc and same issue , next I will try to set the msconfig to lnormal startup and see what happens.

    Ok so I went ahead and rolled back to a earlier image one that installed I took a chance and uninstalled that "a" folder in the OS. Once I did that I'm now able to use the MSCONFIG and chhose between the normal and other start up choices., so that was a plus.
    I used revo to uninstall that a folder and while it was uninstalling it looked like most of it was some type or adobe files.

    Again the only way I think it could of got in there was from that bad new HD, that who know may have been used?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ok for now I have everything back to where I started, that "a" folder caused a lot of hassle with the start up choices I could not get it to start in normal startup. Once that "a: folder was deleted from my C;drive that fixed that

    So its back to the main issue unable to get the repair pc in safe mode nor create a make a system repair disk.

    So if anyone out there has some ideas I really work appreciate them, ior is there a fixit still available for Windows 7 or 3rd party vendor that has a sure fix for free or reasonable cost that actually works?

    So for my backup and recover I will use Acronis as well as clone a extra HD toa extra backup protection.

    For the errors that have had been getting please go to the start of this post.

    SIW2 thanks again for the effort

    From an adminsitrator command prompt I think you ran

    reagentc /info

    have you tried

    reagentc /enable

    Otherwise, you could borrow mine.

    ( see local disc H in pix if you open it says efi???) Now how do I get rid of that?

    I did not have a USb stick handy so I burned the ISo to a CD and booted from that and got your desktop? Again what was I supposed to do with that? Try running the cmd prompt there?
    Ok so now Im really lost, tried running from cmd admin and no luck and then I also see a new drive in my computer

    Again Im not really a techie and am really afraid or screwing something up again.

    Do I need that extra H in my computer if not how do I get rid of that?

    reagentc /info

    have you tried

    reagentc /enable

    Ok so I tried running that cmd from your desktop and no luck, again I do not know what Im doing and would really like to know how to get rido of the H drive that is not in my computer?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I see that the H also shows up here in computer management, now how can I safely remove that? I just finally go the PC to at least be able to use the different startup options in msconfig and I can live with the way it is..

    I created a cloned HD of the OS and have Acronis so I guess that the need for a startup repair option in windows or burning a Windows repair disc at this point is just not worth the trouble especially even with your help is above my knowledge base.

    hopefully you can walk me on how to get rid of the H drive

    Thanks

    The reagentc /enable command should be run from within windows.

    Now we see the oobedone.flg, that indicates that H is the DEll utility partition which is used by the DEll diagnostics.

    They H drive has never even been in my PC and serves no purpose that I know of and since I know little of what I'm doing it really bothers me and as far as Dell the PC no longer has any support.

    If I can I would like to remove it and just live with the PC in the state that it is, I have been on this for days and have had enough ;-)

    Or is ther e a way just to get rid of the H drive my my computer? and leave the partition ?

    Could I just remove the drive letter in computer management? that would get rid of the H drive my my computer?

    If youget rid of the partition, I dont know what effect it would have on the Dell diagnostics.

    Running Dell F12 Preboot Diagnostics - YouTube


    Why not just remove the drive letter so that you dont see it in explorer.
