Try this:

  • Download tdl_fix.sh and save it to the xPUD flash drive.
  • Boot into xPUD then click the File tab.
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
  • Click on the folder under mnt that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)
  • You should see the tdl_fix.sh file in the main window.
  • Select Tool from the Menu
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type bash tdl_fix.sh then press Enter.
  • Read the warning then type y and press Enter to continue.
  • Type sda then press Enter when prompted.
  • You will be shown a list of partitions to choose marking active.
  • Type 3 then press Enter.
  • If you are presented with a warning about no bootloader files, type n then press Enter to choose another.
  • When you receive no warning about bootloader files but are presented with another view of the partition structure and asked if it looks correct, type y then press Enter.
  • The script will complete and prompt you to reboot the computer.
  • Close the Terminal window and restart back into Windows.
  • Post the contents of the tdl_fix.txt file that was created on your flash drive and let me know how the computer is behaving.

**NOTE: - in the event there is a problem booting the computer normally after running the script, run the tdl_fix.sh script again using the following command.

bash tdl_fix.sh -restore

Make sure to leave a space to either side of tdl_fix.sh in the command.
This will prompt you to use the file tdl_mbr_sda.bin on drive sda.
Click OK, and then reboot the computer.
This is a backup of the original mbr and will restore it to it's current state.

However when I tried to restart Windows, it showed the black windows start-up screen an dthen it blue screened.

0X00000078

It said look for virus on the computer and suggested to run chkdsk/f

I am attaching the .bin file as a zip file.

I will run the
bash tdl_fix.sh -restore

Thanks!

Hi,

Installation DVD has to be Windows 7 Home Premium. If it is then we will try with startup repair first. Please go here and follow the steps. Then post results here.
