Solved OS won't boot/C drive missing with no volume

December 22, 2012 at 12:47:40
Specs: Windows 7

Grandson downloaded a game. Will not boot to safe mode. Cannot run antivirus/malware. Command prompt does provide x drive (backup). Repair, Recover and Clean install want hardware drivers I do not have. This is old Dell but downloaded drivers from mfg. Still not finding drivers from CD.

Any suggestions?

✔ Best Answer

if he downloaded an infected torrent then you may have to physically remove the hard drive and slave it to another PC using a dock or usb transfer cables...then do virus checks on it.
