Windows 7: System Repair Disk Acting Strangely

System Repair Disk Acting Strangely

In November, I uninstalled Avast and am still stuck in a System Repair Loop. I managed to find out through Hiren's Boot CD that my Bootmgr is missing and other boot files are corrupt.

I just got my hands on a System Repair disk for my laptop the other day, and for some reason, instead of a Blue background when it starts, I get a Gray background (like with the Windows PE disk I made) with (I think) Korean option boxes (OK, Cancel, etc.) and the title on Command Prompt having Korean letters and Ws with lines through them. How do I get the install disk back to normal and try to repair this System Repair Loop?

Welcome to the Forum.

It would seem that Korean System repair disc is very suspect & it would be best not to use it.

Do you have a Windows Installation DVD, if so follow the tutorial below. If not does your laptop have a recovery program which should be accessible by rapidly hitting one of the F keys, possibly F8 for the boot menu & if it has a recovery program use that.

It's the DVD Itself

Most everything I see on the screen from the installation DVD is in English. However, I get a Grey background with buttons like OK and Cancel in Korean and Ws with lines through them, especially in the command console.
