Hitman Pro Found MBR Problem, Now I can't boot [Closed]
Posted 13 April 2012 - 10:56 AM
please see my previous post about running chkdsk /r.

no it hasn't. It would seem Windows can't access and write to the drive and therefore the log isn't changing.
Could you post a fresh log from driver.sh from xpud?

I'm having a hard time coming up with more ideas. One thing we could try is to run OTLPE from a different windows live-cd. Do you have your Windows CD at hand? Could you create (or do you already have a built) UBCD4Win or BartPE CD?

Is it worth a shot to try and get through the recovery loop and then see what you or gammo can do to clean my system from there?

I think this should've been covered by trying the last known good config, but it's certainly worth a try because Windows doesn't always work the way I think it does.
A few words of advice though: I've had my userprofile (and all data stored in my documents, desktop, etc) deleted by doing this procedure due to some unlucky coincidences. So before trying this make sure that all data that is important on this PC has been backed up.
Even then I would advice to only copy and replace the SYSTEM and the SOFTWARE hive. The other 3 are extremely unlikely to be causing this issue and are the ones storing data on your userprofiles, which you do not want "reset to default".

can you try booting into safe mode and let me know if you get a desktop there? If not please run FRST from the repair environment again and post the log for me.

ok, since we can't run anything from your machine just yet, please run a fresh scan with FRST and show me the log:
You need to download and run the FRST64 version:
For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
For x64 bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.
Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.
Enter System Recovery Options.
To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
- Restart the computer.
- As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
- Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
- Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
- Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
- Select your user account and click Next.
