OK time to work outside of windows .. Do you have a spare USB stick ?

Download the following three programmes to your desktop :


1. WiNTBootIc
2. Windows 7 64bit RC
3. Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64

Extract wintoboot to your desktop
Insert a USB drive of at least 1GB
Run Wintoboot

Posted Image

Drag and drop the Windows 7 ISO to the programme in the space indicated
Tick the Format box and accept the warnings
Press Do It

You will see it progressing

It will let you know when it is done
Then copy FRST to the same USB

Insert the USB into the sick computer and start the computer. First ensuring that the system is set to boot from USB
Note: If you are not sure how to do that follow the instructions Here


When you reboot you will see this although yours will say windows 7. Click repair my computer
