Windows 7: Windows 7 installed but will not boot on my system

12 Dec 2011   #11

Win 7 64 bit

Your HDD isn't seen by the BIOS.

Power up, press F2 or Del (or whatever your board mfr suggest for setup configuration) and enable both channels for harddisks (set to auto-detect). Once it boots, and you're able to start windows you can disable one of the Hard drive channels (or you can just leave at auto-detect setting).

Startup Repair reports corrupt registry which is does not point to HD but corrupt or infected System files.

Startup Repair can fix these if you first eliminate infection, then run it repeatedly since it may need several passes requiring reboots which depend upon the user to confirm it will boot or not.

In rare cases SFC and System Restore which are critical here need to be run manually.

Follow the steps given earlier or ask back questions, keep us updated for interactive support.

Installation & Setup
Boot files installed on C not system reserved?
Boot files etc have installed on C and not system reserved, why? Is it because I increased the size of the system reserved and then (maybe I) left the larger partition highlighted by mistake? I used Windows own install disk to format etc.
