Windows 7: Window's 7 help!

24 Jun 2010   #11


If you were given the 100mb Sys Reserved partition during Win7 install, then you might be able to access the Repair console by tapping F8 at bootup.

Can you write the Win7 Repair CD or Install DVD to USB flash stick? USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Boot the stick using one-time boot menu key given on first boot screen, choose Repair My Computer to see if it finds the installation and offers Repair - If so and it fails, or if not, then click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair repeatedly until it starts.

You might need to mark Win7 active from DVD/CD Command Line to force the repair: Partition - Mark as Active

If all attempts fail, then it is likely GRUB needs to be wiped off the HD first.

Consider moving the HD to another computer to install without activating, as Thorsen suggests, then return it to your computer. It should swap out all drivers, request several restarts, and start up.

Or borrow a DVD drive.

If you used a USB flash stick to do the install (as best as I can understand) then boot it to access the Repair console and run the Repair as I suggested in my first post. If necessary you can wipe the HD using DISKPART from Repair Command Line, then reinstall to cleaned HD.
