Ok. I clicked repair. It comes up with system recovery options. It lists my operating system as windows 7. Partition size 461899 MB location (D:) OS
Load driver and next

If I select it and click next it says "This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows.

OK download this iso and then follow the same instructions as before:

  • Extract the 7rd32.iso image you downloaded to a dedicated folder in the Desktop named 7rd32
  • When you get here, click Advanced mode:
    Posted Image
  • At the task select Transfer WinPE Vista/2008/7/8 to a USB drive
  • Click Run
  • At the PE files source path select the 7rd32 folder from your Desktop
  • At the USB drive select your USB Drive. All data on it will be lost
  • Click Run
  • Allow it to finish
  • Then boot your computer from the USB
  • Select Repair your computer.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next
  • Select command prompt
  • Type in the following command

    Bootrec.exe /FixMbr

  • Once finished type Exit
  • Allow it to do its thing and then try a reboot to normal windows
  • Post a new aswMBR scan

This should work

When I boot from this cd it says system recovery options

Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting windows. Select an operating system to repair

Restore your computer using a system image that you created earlier

I picked use recovery tools. Selected windows 7 and clicked next. It searches the system for problems but it says it can't repair this computer automatically.

Looking at the diagnostics it says root cause found: failure while setup is in progress.

I dont understand. I think I made a mistake when i was typing in command prompts the first time. Either i put a space in the wrong place or not at all I dont know. I'm really panicking now.

Is there any way to manually repair the system32 folder?

Hello,

The problem is that the MBR is bad, so we'll fix this and I think it will be OK. Your files are there, don't worry
At the recovery options, select Command Prompt:
Posted Image
Type:

Bootrec.exe /FixMbr

Tell me the output of the above command
Restart and check if your computer can boot

Every time up until now it would just say that "Your process is finished" it wouldn't say anything about output. It'd just take a second and be done. Where do i find output?
