Windows 7: After install Big red ERROR comes up on screen.

19 Mar 2010   #21

Red 'Error' screen

Red screen of death... I have read that by deleting the remaining hidden factory partition it works ...
(pressing F9 on startup allows you to reload with a standard Asus install of Vista and all programs)
I have this problem also on an Asus laptop that was running Vista Home 32bit, when I installed lovely Windows7 all was well untill it rebooted for the first time then it would not go past the big red 'error' screen.... I am currently re-installing Windows7 yet again and will try to make a recovery CD/DVD of this hidden drive (just in case things go wrong) then I will delete this partition and see how things go....

Back soon with a verdict...

  3. Than choose the “repair” menu (text menu not easy to see)
  4. Choose “command prompt”
  5. Type bootsect.exe
