I know I can reinstall, although I didn't configure it originally, and am a bit hesistant to do that.

I never backed up the Registry. So I'm thinking I"m completely hozed.

Any help is appreciated.

Download BlueScreenView (in Zip file)
No installation required.
Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

I can't get windows to start, and I tried running it from the command window with no luck. I get "The Ssubsystem needed to support the image type is not present."

I downloaded the image to an external USB Drive, then tried running it from that on my corrupted Windows 7 machine.

Update: I've had to reboot several times, but I finally got windows to come up (using the Windows 7 install disk, and clicking on "repair" when it starts)... trying BlueScreenViewer again.

Success!:

try to Run a Startup Repair...instructions here...If repairs are not successful, you'll see a summary of the problem

if its not the hard drive or hard drive controller causing the issue you could also try to Do a Repair Install...

Already been doing that....

When I finally got it to lanuch windows, I decided I better create a system restore point. As soon as I completed that, I got another BSOD. I went through the Startup Repair about 10 more times, and finally got bacdk to windows. I ran again the BlueScreenView, and it didn't have any new files on the latest crash.

MEH....HATE windows

Upon the lastest bSOD, when I rebooted, I got a "BOOTMGR is CURRUPT. The system cannot boot."

So I put the Win7 Install CD back in and did the above boot several times until the Win 7 started correctly.

Any way to check for a corrupt registry etc?

Well, since this computer is almost brand new, you can perform one more check (listed below).
If your computer is clean, I'd contact computer manufacturer.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Total Operator Error (aka I did a really stupid thing):

Per directions from the computer manufacturer, I was to delete partitions of the boot disk (64GB SSD) during the reinstall of Windows 7.

The Windows 7 install process asked which partitions I wanted to deleted, and didn't mark them by their previous drive letters (C: for my SSD and D: for my 1TB HDD Data Drive). Instead of taking an extra 20 seconds to look at all the data and deduce that I only want to delete the partitions on the SSD, I deleted them all... DOOH!.

Edit: assuming no one else has further questions, you can close this and mark "solved." Thanks for the help.

Fortunatly, I didn't write any additional data nor repartition/reformat the Data drive.

FYI, I've tried 2 free Partition Undelete software packages:

http://www.paragon-s...l/download.html

http://www.partition...om/download.htm

I had difficulty with the paragon utility, and had to burn 2 cds to get it to work and boot correctly, and it still wouldn't see my HDD drive (which btw was a RAID 0 configuration of 2 1 TB WD drives).

So next I tried "Create a New Simple Drive" from within the Windows 7 Disk Manager.

DO NOT DO THIS!!!! It further complicates the recovery of the partition undelete.

So next I tried the Partition-Recovery software demo free edition, and used the "SuperScan Option." This took about 4 hours to completely scan all 1TB. (I think if I hadn't tried to "Create new simple drive", the Quick scan option in the software would have found the deleted partition in minutes).

I'm now at the point where I have recoved most of the lost files due to my stupidity :).

And I recommend trying the http://www.partition...om/download.htm if you have problems with a deleted partition.

Edit: Assuming that no one has any further questions, please close this and mark "Solved." Thanks for all the help!

Update: the http://www.partition...om/download.htm software required a $40 purchase (I bought the windows version) in order to actually recover the data. The Free download only scans and shows what can be recovered. :)

$40 was will well worth my time value :)
