I am sorry, but the OS partition seems corrupted. Someone or something change the partition to type 06, which it is a partition used for DOS and FAT partitions, and that seems to have corrupted the partition. Despite changing it back to 07, which is the right type for an NT file system, the issue persisted. the partition cannot be read, nor we can write to it.

In my opinion, the hard drive must be wiped (All partition should be removed), and reformat as NTFS, then a re-install must be done.

I just wonder if you may be able to have access to your data throughout Linux before erasing it. I prefer Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 desktop with browser wizard, as it is easier to handle.

Here are the instructions and download links.

I have split your last response to the Software Forum. I am sure you will be able to find good people in this forum with the experience to wipe, format and reinstall the Operating System.

 

You cannot use an .iso file to boot a computer. It must be burned into a CD with a special utility such as, IMGBurn. But if you have backed up your documents, all you have to do is to wipe the disk clean, format ans install the Operation System,

 

I am closing this topic as no longer deals with malware. I will keep an eye on the other topic just in case.

I think I said I would take your advice and try Linux Puppy first. Glad I did, I have Linux running from Live CD in infected machine.

The idea with Linux was to backup your personal files to then reinstall. Are you able to read the OS partition throughout Linux?

This is what I can see on the Linux screen.

 

1. File System NTFS 100 MB  - this contains Bootmgr, system volume information etc.

 

2. File System NTFS 931.4 GB – this contains Windows, MSOffice, Program Files etc.

 

3. File System vfat size 3.7 GB – this contains pictures, recordings etc

 

4. HL_DT_STBD-RE BH10LS30 size 132 MB – this contains ISOLINUX.BIN, ISOLINUX.CFG etc

 

When I originally had the idea of Linux Mint, I had read articles like

 

http://www.techrepub...or-mac-machines

 

(TOOL NO 10) and

 

http://www.howtogeek...our-windows-pc/

 

These gave me the idea that Linux would not just recover files but might fix the machine.

 

Also, when I switched Linux off yesterday, there was some sort of error message about need to “mount a partition”. It did not stay on screen for long and I was not expecting it so cannot remember exactly what it said.

 

Thanks.

I am not knowledgeable on Linux. There is a Forum here where you can post the question as your OS partition can't be read. Perhaps that is the non mountable partition error you received.

 

Keep me posted.

Thanks again for this. I have opened a new subject where you suggested. It's title is "Corrupted W7 OS partition. Linux help?". I simply copied some of the stuff from this thread so as not to confuse anyone with my interpretation.

 

Will you please leave this thread open so that the Linux expert (and myself) can see what you did to diagnose the problem.

 

As an aside, I really like Linux Puppy. I could end up running that with the onboard MSOffice-type suite!!

 

Thank you.
