Windows 7: Windows 7 will not install. Cpu will not load

Windows 7 will not install. Cpu will not load

I always offer to pay $50 in paypal to whoever helps, though no one takes me up. I have an ASUS cm1730 purchased at best buy in:2011 no: uogrades. Today I purchased 2 4 gig sticks of RAM. They are the correct kind, I am 100% positive. The MB holds 2-16 gig. Installing the ram somehow damaged the computer. I use this computer for my business. I just want to reformat the HD, take all the loss and have it working. PNY told me they have seen ASUS montheboards not recognize ram if the bios is outdated. My bios version is 0504 with a build date of 7/18/11. Bios recognized the 3 sticks of ram, HOWEVER, after installing the new ram it automatically took me to a windows start up repair, not allowing the computer to boot. I attempted to use a restore point as it suggested. This did not work. I accidently deleted the partition wity BOOTMNGR on it. I was crying a bit ago. This computer is needed. Now when I attempt to load it up. I get BOOTMNGR missing. I have the win 7 cd but it will not let me reinstall and all of the recovery points are gone. Since I deleted a partition (formatted it) the only way to boot the cpu is with the win 7 cd

When I click install now>upgrade I am givwn a compatibility report that says I must boot the computer without the cd in then insert the CD which is not possible cpu will not boot now.

When I try custom advanced I am given 3 options disk 0 patrition 1 oem reserved, disk part 2 recovery primary & disk0 patrition3 the largest 139gbsystem (reserved; primary; oem are listed as types.)

I have no physical backups. I always made restore points that are gone now. Ican not afford to lose the data on the cpu. But at this point am so angry I just want to format. it also gives me an option to load drivers. But I do not know what that means.

COULD HAVE INSTALLING RAM have started this? It automatically took me into a windows repair mode. I tried the 2 new sticks qlone and the old one. The win repair said something about I installed a new device and it needed to fix it. ALSO is their truth to my bios being so old my ASUS 2ill not recognine it. THANK YOU IN ADVANCEA for h3lp.

I am typing on my tablet and not used to this. in short I installed ram. It caused some type of start up error. Windowa could not automatically fix it. I formatted/deleted a partition accidently. Now I can not load, repair or install windows since 2011 or earlier win 7 fourms has always helped. I just forgot my oldest login. Ty again.

How could you accidentally delete the boot partition? This would require all of the effort and tools on an unbootable OS to actually repair it, but you're saying you know for sure instead you deleted it? How? Why? This boggles the imagination.

Was this the 100mb System Reserved partition? If so Mark Win7 Partition Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times no matter what it reports. This should write the boot files to C, make it bootable and start Win7 which will now be labeled System Active.

A prompt for drivers from the Win7 disk means it is bad. Download another for your licensed version and write to disk or stick with the tool provided in Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7

Using the Win7 disk you can rescue your files to USB stick or external USB drive using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console.

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which also includes everything possible that can be done to boot Win7.

If it will not repair then after rescuing files click Install Now to do a Custom install, delete all partitions to create new or just click Next to have the installer format your install partition and begin. Follow Clean Reinstall Windows 7 closely and you'll get and keep a perfect install as long as you do.
