I have a computer (self built and enhanced over time) with dual booting into Windows XP and Windows 7. MOBO is ASUS P5K-VM. Windows XP is on an IDE drive and Windows 7 on a SATA hard drive. A bit slow but worked fine.
The PC now gives a boot0:error when I try to boot into Windows 7 but windows XP works fine. I replaced the battery on mobo, copied the SATA hard drive image onto another sata drive but the error persists. Windows 7 installation disk is not able to repair the MBR. Since the drive image is from about 3 months earlier, I dont want to overwrite the files unless it is the last resort. Have lots of family pictures on it.
The disk image was created using EaseUS, which is also not able to repair the MBR. So basically, I am not able to boot into Windows 7.
I am, however, able to copy the files off the original SATA drive onto a portable drive.
Any suggestions on fixing the PC are appreciated.
