May the wizard try to resolve your dreaded problems today!


Ok so this might be handy "if" you have a Windows 7 or 8 disc depending on the OS you have on your computer. If you do "insert it" into the CD-ROM drive and turn your computer on. As soon as it loads the POST screen quickly press F12 or ESC depending on which what the motherboard says.


Wait for it to load it generally takes 2-5 minutes to load. As soon as it loads press next and whatever you do. Do Not click "Install Now" instead there should be two tabs saying "What to know before installing Windows" and "Repair Your Computer" the second one you should click.


It will begin searching for a Installed OS on the system if there is click "Next>". Now there a two options that you should try and try either both, because one might not work while the other will:


Method 1:

While in the box "Search Recovery Options" and click "Startup Repair" this would take several minutes to complete (Longer if your computer isn't fast enough) after rebooting it should be gone this does not work most of the time, but is an alternative method.


Method 2:

You would have to be back at the "Search Recovery Options" so you might need to redo the steps above. After reaching it again there should be a thing saying "Command Prompt" which would open a black dialog box. Type in /bootrec fixboot and restart your computer make sure to include <SPACE> after /bootrec. Remove the disc and it should start up normally again. This would work %50 of the time, but should do the job :)
