Ran Hitman Pro After File Recovery Malware And Now System Won't Boot


I had a file recovery malware infection that i first cleaned with malwarebytes antimalware. Then i ran hitman pro and then it said it would delete a volume boot record and to restart pc.

When i restarted pc it wont boot up now. It says a disk read error has occured press ctrl alt del to restart. I cant even restart with ctrl alt del.

I tried to do a system restore but there are no restore points shown. That file recovery malware hid a lot of files i think and it seems like the main disk drive is now drive H.

I don't know what to do.

Windows 7 Pro Won't Boot In RAID-0?
My PC is setup with two hard drives as RAID-0 (1 partition) and it has refused to boot Windows 7 for the past few days. The computer simply shows a black screen after it goes through the BIOS screens. Pressing F8 to enter Safe Mode does not work at all.This issue has arisen after I tried installing a video card (XFX Geforce 8800 GTX) without uninstalling my old video drivers. It's still a mystery to me how installing the card would cause problems with Windows or my hard drivesHere's what I've done so far to troubleshoot:I created a System Recovery boot disk because I lack the original Windows 7 installation cd. System Restore does not work, nor does the Image function. System Repair simply hangs for an unbelievable amount of time.

After scanning my hard drives for various info, I found out that my first hdd is listed as NTFS, yet my second one is RAW. Subsequently, the C: drive is also listed as RAW, and I cannot use Chkdsk.exe on it. Through a cmd prompt, I used Bootrec.exe /FixMbr and /FixBoot, but it did not seem to fix the issue. I also used Bootrec.exe /ScanOs to see if the Windows 7 installation still existed, yet it came up with nothing.I've managed to use a program called RAID Reconstructor, via a PE Builder boot disk, in order to copy all my hard drives' sectors over to my external hard drive. The external is now hooked up to a second PC that I'm using to troubleshootIt seems that all of my personal files are intact and working perfectly fine, and the file names are also correct. I don't really know how to check my Windows/System32 files for corruption.I'd like to fix Windows 7 without having to format the hard drives. Since I lack the Windows 7 installation cd, I can only install Windows XP while lacking 64-bit support. Since I'd like to avoid this, I was wondering if there was a way to get Windows 7 back up and running. But I suppose this isn't possible without getting my second hdd back to NTFS format.

RC DVD Won't Boot On MacBook Pro
I downloaded the RC ISO and burned it to a DVD and tried to install it on my MacBook Pro, but the DVD won't boot. I hold down C during boot, they gray screen comes up and the disc spins real fast for a while, but nothing happens.

I have read that the ISO created isn't ISO compliant so you have to create an ISO that is. I followed the instructions here to do that. This didn't make a difference.

I didn't have any problems installing the Beta, but the RC won't boot.

Windows 7 Won't Boot / System Repair / Restore / Safe Mode Won't Work
I have recently installed windows ultimate x64 on my computer.i have an asus p6t deluxe v2 mobo, i7-960 cpu and a wd velociraptor hdd. The install went ok, I even managed to restart my computer a few times after but after windows updates installed it won't boot. I tried to boot into safe mode, restore from the installer, and repair, none worked. After startup repair it says: "a patch is preventing the system from starting" and I get a 0x1f error code.(Preventing windows from downloading any updates didn't work either)

Recovery Completes But Won't Boot
I received recovery discs from acer. First I deleted the 100 mb partition as per acer and ran the recovery. It finished and the system rebooted however I received the following boot error msg: Windows boot mgr.Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change may be the cause.

1. Insert your windows install disc and restart.

2. choose your language settings and click "next".

3. Click "repair your computer"

File BootBCD
Status: 0xc0000225
Info: an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

It is my understanding from acer that windows 7 is re-installed from the recovery discs. Don't understand why this msg. Dont have any windows 7 discs. The acer logo does come up after boot but goes directly to the screen with the above info.

Yesterday I installed Windows 7 on my computer and everything worked perfect the internet, music, etc... The problem is that when i resterted some screen said: System Recovery Options and I couldn't use the computer so installed W-7 again but now I'm afraid to shut down my computer because I don't want to re-install it again and again. What can I do to no get the System recovery options screen. My computer is a Gateway.

This is what the System Recovery Options screen says:
1. Select language
2. Select an [COLOR=#0072bc !important][COLOR=#0072bc !important]operating [COLOR=#0072bc !important]system[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] to repair and click Next. (I clicked Windows 7)
3. Password
4. (Then the screen) SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS which includes the options of doing Startup Repair, System Restore, Windows Complete PC Restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, [COLOR=#0072bc !important][COLOR=#0072bc !important]Command [COLOR=#0072bc !important]Prompt[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], Recovery Manager.

I've done it 3 times and it doesn't work. and I'm getting tired of re-installing.

Windows 7 Won't Boot And Recovery Options Don't Work?
however, this time, he is away and is unable to help me. So I try to do the same thing, I run start up repair, and it says problems can't be solved automatically, I clicked on details, it shows that a problem signature is CorruptFile.This time, theres no BSOD, but it kept leading me to the Start up recovery page (the one with sys restore, restore system using image etc and command prompt). I tried running safe mode, as well as safe mode with networking, last known good config, ran all the options on system recovery/system restore. It seems like the only option i have left is use the command prompt to fix the problem. I lost the windows installation CD, so some of the commands such as bootrec.exe is in vain. I don't really know what i'm doing any way when I use the command prompt. As a last resort, I'm willing to reinstall my comp, what do i do so that i can save some files? also is it possible that I download the reinstallation file since I lost the original one?

Can't Boot Windows 7 - Recovery Options Won't Work / Not Compatible
I'm having trouble with my windows installation. It seems windows installation was corrupted. I get the following when I boot (this is a summary):

Windows failed to start. . .
Insert an installation disc [and repair your computer]...
File: EFIMicrosoftBootBCD
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

However, the big problem starts here: the recovery options in the windows installation disc don't work. It just says it's not compatible with my version of windows (even though I know it must be, since that was the disc I installed from). How can I repair my windows installation? Could I connect my corrupt hard drive to another computer and do it through there?

Won't Boot After Disaster Recovery With Genie?
So I did a disaster recovery with Genie Backup Manager and now Windows will not boot.I get the following bugcheck error: 0xc000021a. The message was something like: "failed to verify a Knowndll".Sfc may be able to fix the issue, but I can't use it because "a repair is pending".I can't find any crash dumps either, even though I get a BSOD.I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

My CD/Rom Won't Boot Windows 7 Pro Install Disc
I just got a new battery for my computer, because the old one died. When the old one died, it messed up the files on the hard drive. I used a windows xp pro installation disc to wipe the hard drive (or delete the partition), then set it as slave with another hard drive as master. Both hard drives are were wiped clean, nothing on them, and now the computer is actually running pretty fast. So, I tried to run the Windows 7 installation cd to install Windows 7 (Nyaha! Redundency!) to the new primary drive. Here's the problem. It won't boot the disc. I went to the BIOS and set it to boot the CD/ROM first, second, and last. It still won't boot the Windows 7 CD. Now, I have 3 CDs for Windows 7, my family has three different computers. I tried the 64 bit one, and the two 32 bit one's, but it will. Not. Work. It just does not boot any of them. It says "Boot Failure from Previous Device.

Windows 7 Won't Boot - Caught In Recovery Loop
I was in the middle of reinstalling Windows 7 and the power went out. The computer Dell Inspiron 1440 is caught in a continuous loop. I have 3 options to choose from when I power up the computer:

Windows 7
Windows RollBack and
Another Windows 7.

Regardless of what option I choose (I tried all 3) it goes to a second screen where I have 2 options: Launch Start up repair or start windows normally. Regardless of which of those options I choose it goes back to the first 3 choices (Windows 7 Windows Roll setup rollback or Windows 7). I can't make any progress. I have tried booting from safe mode (F8) and it still will not boot. It blinks safe mode for a few seconds then reboots and goes through the same continuous loop.

I am trying to boot from the CD; I am using an external CD drive as the internal drive does not work properly. The boot sequence it set to the CD drive first. I have tried everything I can think of and I have been searching the internet for days and I cannot figure out how to get this system back up. I do not care if I lose everything on the drive. MI have all the discs from Dell.

Computer Won't Boot After Somehow Bios Auto Recovery
I usually consider myself having some idea about computers but this things is out of my league. [code] My computer has been getting BSOD'S for several days after installing java 7 update 8.I somehow managed to get system back on it's track for few times with cd/usb booting but now, when i start it i just get a black screen no beeps at all and back, gpu and cpu fans are working on max.Tried reseting bios with clr cmos button and taking the bios battery out but nothing helps.I thought it could be hardware error and as there was black screen i suspected the gpu which was making problems before the fan came off so I replaced it with accelero l2 pro.I don't think it's the mobo problem because when i remove both ram sticks i get like 8 beeps until it restarts and everything repeats.But on the other hand how could it be hardware problem if comp autorecovered bios.I also thought about flashing the bios but the boot is set to floppy so i am not sure how would that work out.

Can't Access System Recovery Or Boot To Windows 7 After XP Install
I recently created a new partition with 200GB of space on my Windows 7 64bit (HP Elite) PC system. I installed Windows XP Professional on that new partition (trying to create dual OS). After Windows XP was installed, I was unable to find "Windows 7" as a boot option under "Startup and Recovery"... I could only see Windows XP Professional. I went to Disk Management and right clicked on the partition where my Windows 7 OS was under, and chose "Make partition active"... I got a warning system MAY not be able to boot, but I chose to proceed anyways. I tried restarting and got an error "BOOTMGR is missing / Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" ... I tried pressing F11 after restarting to get into "System Recovery" but it would go directly to the error message. I was still be able to access everything else during boot except "System Recovery" such as BIOS, etc.

I re-installed Windows XP Professional on the same partition... and was now able to get into the Windows XP Pro OS again. I'm still unable to access "System Recovery" when booting. F11 option is being bypassed and going directly into XP OS. This is my first concern, how do I get "System Recovery" to get working again? It used to work before as I re-installed Windows 7 couple of months ago. I can still see "FACTORY IMAGE" drive in My Computer (could be on a different drive letter than before). And second, how do I boot to my original Windows 7 OS (C-drive seems intact and all Win-7 system files are there)?

Windows 7 Won't Boot - No Operating System Listed / System Partition Not Valid
Suddenly my Win 7 Home Premium x64 will not boot. The system starts, POSTs then loads the DVD driver, then the screen goes black (not blank but "lit up" black if that makes sense). Then nothing. If I use Hiren's boot cd I can boot up using the "boot from HDD" option fine and Windows operates normally. System restore to a previous configuration made no difference to the original problem. I cannot boot into Safe Mode. F8 just offers me boot order options.

- Running the Windows 7 DVD I find: "No operating system is listed on the Repair Windows option."
- Running Startup Repair finds the following error: "the partition table does not have a valid system partition" which it claims to have repaired, but the error remains and Windows will still not boot.

I followed this advice:
Boot 7 dvd to system recovery options command prompt. Type: Diskpart
list vol (find the vol letter e.g C or partition number e.g. 1 for the system partition )
Sel vol C ( or sel vol 1, obviously use the correct letter or number)
act exi

My system partition was easily identified and listed as healthy so I selected it and made it active. The problem still remains exactly the same. My system is self built just over a year ago, to my knowledge has been running fine, without any hardware issues. I'm prepared to do a clean install if that's what it takes but if there is a way to fix the partition problem without that I'd like to explore it first.

BSOD System Won't Boot / Cannot Boot To Safemode
My Windows 7 64 bit machine will not boot. It keeps going into Windows System recovery mode. I have tried that multiple times and rebooted each time but no luck.System specs - Windows 7 64 bit, 16gb ram. Core i7-920 with 12 gb ram. This is an OEM disc that I bought from comp store, all parts and OS are less than three years old. C: drive - windows install a few apps, Drive 1 - games and music,

1) tried looking up this error with instructions. online instructions have had me go into the command prompt to perform edits on the c: windowsSystem32 folder. These do not come up in my prompt on my c: drive - where windows in installed. See program files etc, but no Windows32 folder.
2) already have run the c: chkdsk /r to try and fix the disc. It went through everything and comes back saying there are no problems. Still cannot boot to windows either get BSOD mentioned above or recovery mode.
3) Cannot go to previous restored state (one of the choices ) as it states that I have no restore points although I know that I have established at least 2 in the last 2-3 months
4) Tried inserting the Windows 7 disc and running repair from there but it just takes me to the same Windows system recovery mode which still does not work.
5) I tried hitting F8 during boot to go into safe mode but no good. it only takes me to a screen which gives me the option for boot order.
6) run the memory test from recovery console - no problems.

I have read the BSOD thread but everything there seems to assume that you can already boot into Windows at sometime and download the exe to run. (I cannot get into windows at all)Does anyone have any suggestions? I built this one myself (4th build) and have never in the 10 years of using Windows had a problem which I could not get into at least safe mode.I can go to maybe until this weekend but need to use my computer by Saturday cob.If I have had no luck at that point i will have to reinstall windows (it is on its own harddrive with most all of my applications on separate drives. So that may be a small blessing.I have had no strange occurrences while using the computer which is on pretty much 24/7.Is this what happens when a harddrive crashes? This one is about 2.5 years old and there have been no warning signs that something was amiss (no clicking etc)

System Won't Boot Up?
(it started life out as a gateway) and I have aprox 500 gigs divided into 2 parts, with another external tb that I keep all my art stuff on (I am a computer artist) so I won't lose everything...Anyway to make a long story short, at the moment I can't get it to boot up, Yesterday it was at least booting up but all it gave me was a pure white screen and now it won't even do that... I have tried to do a restore, but all my points were gone...so I tried from reading here that I could go into my reg files and fix that by removing a couple of folders...well that worked great and displayed my restore points, but i tried 6 or 7 and it wasn't able to complete the restore...I then tried the restore in the "repair your computer" section and several times it told me again there were none....Also the "start up repair" told me that there was nothing wrong with my computer...So, here are the "tools " I have to work with, to get my system back and running.

I can pull a boot up from a Vista dvd that came from MS directly, but I also have 2 install discs of Windows 7 I made, and one just boot and repair, and when I try to reinstall windows, it tells me that there is an issue with a connecteddrive....But, if I use the vista one it does boot, but never starts installing the files...When I try to boot (and sometimes i was successfull with one of the win 7 discs too) it does show windows installing, but then it keeps starting over and over again.I AM able to access my computer via programs like regedit and my c-prompt, but most of the programs won't start. Some exe's will start though like mozilla so I can also access the internet.I can also access my program files, and don't see anything glaringly out of place.
