On the Neo Smart website, there is a link to create a emergency boot/repair disc. It's a torrent download (165MB for Win 7 64 bit), they also have the 32 bit as well as Vista 32 & 64 bit discs. It was the first time I have ever done a torrent file, so I done it on my XP laptop. And it is legal, it was said that Microsoft provided these discs. And if you have any questions about it, there is a forum as well. The website is: http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/window...-repair-disks/
The best that I could do was manually type it in, I don't know how to copy & paste or whatever it's called. I had to figure out how to do the torrent thing myself, I'm sure there are many of you who are more experienced. I did create a disc as soon as I got this PC going, but it's better to have another just in case. And I felt it would be good to share this with you all, because I've received a lot of pointers here, and if anyone gets in a jam, I hope that it's useful.
WinPE Emergency Disk Won't Load, PC Reboots
I made a WinPE Emergency disk for recovery, I also made a partition backup of my system which I put on a USA 1TB external drive.Nothing is wrong with my system but I just wanted to check to see if I could access the backup image. But when I boot from the CD I get past the 'Windows is loading files' page, then to a different page with the EaseUS lgo, but the load ba only goes 1/8th of the way before my computer reboots itself.The same thing happens if I use the EaseUS Linux version of the CD.Could it be an error made during the burn process?
How To Correct Boot Sector Without Repair Disk
Have a netbook with Windows 7 Starter. It dualboots with Linux. My plan is to remove the Linux partition to make space on the hard disk. Obviously then the boot information, which is a GRUB, should be corrected. How can you edit this ahead of time, to allow a boot with a single entry? A netbook has no disk drive, so there is no repair disk available.
Windows 7 Won't Detect Repair Disk On Boot
I've got a CyberPower desktop computer which has worked great for over a year now. I was having some problems with my hard drive and so I started to attempt to improve it by first doing a disk check and then disabling some programs launching when the computer starts, making sure not to touch the Microsoft ones. Now when I start my computer I'm greeted with a message from the windows boot manager saying "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" the status is "0xc000000f and the info is "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". The major problem that I'm having is that when I put in the CyberPower disc which contains Windows 7, it seems to just ignore it! What can I do?
Computer Will Not Boot, Asks For Installation Disk. Repair Doesn't Load
Today I booted up my computer and got a screen saying something went seriously wrong with my computer and that I should repair it from an installation disk. I load up windows onto a USB, boot it and click the repair option. It's been about half an hour and nothing has shown up. Is it still loading or perhaps something is very wrong with my PC?

Does Repair Disk Include All Software On The Computer At Time Disk Was Made
After I got my new laptop, I installed antivirus, windows updates, etc, removed bloatware and installed the software that I actually use. Then I created my System Repair disk (single disk). Does this disk include all software and windows updates that were on my computer at the time I created the disk? I have read that System Repair disks will only have the factory settings of Windows 7, but I don't know if this is the case for all System Repair disks or only those that came with the computer and were made before the computer was purchased?I've also read that a System Repair disk could include a system image. Is this true and done by default when the System Repair disk is created?

Create Windows 7 Recover (not Repair) Disk?
I have a Asus K52F laptop running Windows 7 64 bit. The laptop did not come with a Windows 7 recovery disk. Can a Windows 7 64 bit recover disk be created? When I use the term "recovery disk", I do not mean "repair disk". I already created a repair disk. But my understanding is that the repair disk can not be used to reinstall Windows 7.
The procedure seemed straightforward, and I'm running it straight after a fresh posready install to test it. I have 2 USB DVD drives attached, one to write the image to, and one because it needs the installation media as part of the creation process. from control panel, backup and restore, click Create a System Repair Disc Choose the dvd writer to use to create the disc and insert a blank disc, I choose E: in my case which has a blank DVD-R "Insert Windows Installation Disc", OK I put the Posready7 install DVD in the other DVD drive F: , click continue... System Repair Disc could not be created, The system could not find the path specified (0x8070003) I have tried inserting instead a Windows 7 Professional DVD at step 3, have tried with a single DVD writer, swapping discs, have tried on a couple of different posready7 installs, one with the 100MB system reserved partition and one without.
I've googled the error code and got lots of results suggesting corrupt user profiles etc, but these are new installs.
SFC Logs When Running From A Repair Disk?
I have a Dell notebook wiht Windows 7 64-bit that is getting a BSOD (0xF4) and I'm fairly certain is was caused by a rootkit, although I'm not 100% certain. One debugger shows wininit.exe as the culprit and another shows the kernel itself. At any rate, the system will not boot. It gets to where the login dialog is about to show and gets the BSOD. It will not boot in safemode either.Anyway, I've tested the hard drive and memory and I'm fairly certain that it is corrupted and/or rootkit files that is the problem. So I've booted to a Windows 7 repair disk and ran SFC and it tells me that files are corrupted and it can't fix them.Normally I would check the CBS.log file to see what's up, but I'm not sure where the log file is when running SFC from the repair disk. I've searched the "X" drive and the "C" drive, but there's no log files.
New Hard Disk-startup Repair Loop?
The hard drive on my laptop recently failed and I purchased and installed a new one to replace it. I cloned as much of the data off of the old drive as possible. However, when I go to boot from it, it gets stuck in a startup repair loop. Startup repair doesn't find any problems, but it is unable to boot windows. I installed windows 7 on a new partition see if I could do a repair install to the other hard drive, but that does not appear to be possible. I've ran chkdsk and it does not find any errors. Is there anything else that I should try to be able to run the older install, or should i just start reinstalling everything.
Windows 7 Repair Disk To Restore MSI
I think I must have lost Windows Installer using Revo uUninstaller and messed up the registry somehow. I'm a bit afraid to use the Win 7 repair disk 32 bit I created; I might mess things up further. I've tried to download a 32 bit installer update to no avail; it says it's not compatible with my version of Windows (Professional, SP1). Anyhow, does the Win 7 repair disk have a fix for the lost Win 7 installer? If so, I might give it a try if you can provide some guidance in doing so. I have everything backed up in Carbonite, Seagate external drive, Acronis True Image, memory sticks, etc.

System Repair Disk Not Seeing My External Drive
I created a backup and image (Win 7 Pro) on an external (USB attached) HDD and then created a Windows 7 System Repair Disk. I then booted from the repair disk and the attached external drive is not visible.
The external drive is attached via through a hub, does it need to be attached directly? Is their a generic USB Mass Storage Device driver that I can load?
I was hoping that by creating the repair disk that all necessary drivers would have been loaded to the disk, but apparently not.
Sytem Repair Disk Cannot Load - Error
Went into the Windows 7 control panel to make a 'system repair disk' (boot disk), just in case I ever needed it. Making the disk went OK, with Windows 7 telling me it had successfully finished, and to label the CD.
I then put the boot CD into my DVD drive to make sure it worked OK. Computer boots from the CD and Windows 7 says it has started loading files. Then the pretty blue background screen started (just like the one in the F8 repair console), and then there was a long pause and then I get the error code shown on the photo below. Clicking OK reboots the computer, and no repair options ever load.
I made two separate boot disks to rule out a bad CD, but still get the same error #
This is a brand new Dell computer, both DVD drives work fine, and burn CDs without problems.
Run A Windows 7 Repair Disk That Was Created On A Different PC?
I have an issue with my desktop PC. I believe I have a corrupted system file since the HDD is no longer bootable; however I have been able to remove the infected drive and install it as a slave on my HTPC. This has allowed me to backup all my important files.My question... I'd like to run a Repair on the existing Windows 7 install but I never created a rescue disk when the OS was operational. Can I create a repair disk using my Windows 7 OS off the HTPC and run it over my desktop PC? Or is the disk specific to the PC the OS belongs to.
