So, I need some serious help. My cousin told me that re-installing windows every year or so is healthy for the system. So, I gave it a try. I don't know what cd I put in but it was the wrong one. After the install my computer re-booted and hasn't opened to windows since. Every time that I start up the computer it goes from Bios to windows boot manager, which I click windows 7, to startup repair. After it's done with it's little scan it says, "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically". then I can go into some advanced options. Honestly I would like to just wipe the hard drive and re-install from the cd but I don't know how at this point. When I put the cd in it changes nothing. There are not options to re-install or run the cd. Please help.

"which I click windows 7, to startup repair"

This forum is for Windows XP, Windows 2000, 2003 & NT. Not Windows 7.
To avoid any confusion, please confirm which version of Windows you are trying to repair.
