    Quick Fix


    I keep having this issue over and over due to the number of Hard Drives on my system. Is there a simple, safe and easy way to recreate and save the files needed to the specific hard drive that I keep th O.S. on?

    A = Floppy
    C = Main (OS) (Same kind of HD as E: 300gb Raptor)
    D = Dvd R/W Drive
    E = Data
    F = Daily Internal Backup Drive
    G = Ide Swap Cage (external backup & files)
    H = USB/eSata Backup Drive in a Enclosure
    R = Flashdrive (Readyboost)
    S = SATA swap Cage (Currently 2tb Backup & Data)

    Thank You

    It appears I will have to just disconect all drives except C:\ and do the repair. I then had to delete the partition & format F:\. The problem is due to C:\ being a Sata raptor and F:\ is a IDE that is always hooked up. The motherboard wants to make the IDE the boot drive. I have it setup to boot from the Sata but after a tweak or crash it reverts back to F:\ first. All fixed for now. Thank you for all the tips on this forum!

    I've got a damaged MBR (yes, tried to delete linux partition) and want to follow the steps provided in the OP (btw, thank you so much for providing them), but I've got one problem: I don't have a repair disc. Or a Windows 7 disc - my computer's an Asus G-series, and came with Windows 7 installed, but without a disc. All I've got are the recovery discs that I created when I first got the computer, and I've gotten no response from the computer when I've tried using them.

    Could one of my friends who have Windows 7 create a repair disc on their machine, or is the repair disc specific to each copy of Windows 7? I'd really prefer not to have to do clean install of Windows, as I've got a few recent saved game files that aren't backed up. Any advice?

    Hello mulceber, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

    You can use a "System Repair Disk" burned off another computer with Windows Seven. However, you must determine if your copy of Windows Seven is 32bit or 64bit and use a compatible "Repair Disk". Please note the warning box here:

    System Repair Disc - Create

    Otherwise, as long as you can boot to the repair disk and follow the instructions to restore the Windows boot files, it should work fine.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the warm welcome and the advice! I'll try it out and let you guys know. I know mine is 64 bit, and I'm pretty sure my friend's is as well, so I'm not too concerned about that. My real worry is that I'm not sure I'll be able to boot from a disc - all the previous times when I tried booting from a disc, I tried pressing F12, F10 and F2 and the computer never responded to them - I just got the same message about a grub.

    But we'll see - thanks so much for the help!

    Hey, I managed to get the repair disc made and from there it was pretty much smooth sailing. The instructions were detailed and extremely useful for fixing my copy of Windows! Thanks all!
