|Did you try the F8 option indicated in post #3? |
(this relies on the recovery mechanism installed on the hard drive)
Did you try these in the following order (either via F8 or your recovery CD)?
(these rely on the recovery mechanism on your CD)
1. "Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)"
2. "System Restore"
3. "Startup Repair"
If they all failed, there might just be a possibility that your recovery disc (or the recovery mechanism installed on the hard drive) might have problems?
In that case you might want to try the recovery CD pointed to in post #1 and detailed in post #3 with regards to how to download it. Once you have downloaded that recovery CD you will need to burn it to a CD. As it is an ISO image you will have to select the "burn image" option of your CD writing software when you burn it.
I guess I will have to wipe out and reinstall Win7.
By that do you mean recovery to factory defaults using the built in recovery partition or a clean install?
☺ When everything else fails, read the instructions.
