    Please Boot to the System Recovery Options
    If you have Windows 7 installation disc, just insert a DVD to the drive, restart computer and it should load automatically (option two presented in the article).
    It's possible also that your computer has a pre-installed recovery partition instead - in such a case use a method one (by pressing F8 before Windows starts loading)...
    NOTE. If none of the above apply you can create System Repair Disc (link in "Option two") and boot from it.

    On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

    • Startup Repair
    • System Restore
    • Windows Complete PC Restore
    • Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
    • Command Prompt

    Choose Command Prompt
    You should see X:\SOURCES>...

    Execute the following commands in bold.
    Press Enter after every one of them.

    bootrec /fixmbr (<--- there is a "space" after "bootrec")

    bootrec /fixboot (<--- there is a "space" after "bootrec")

    exit

    Restart computer.

    Should I restart it in safe mode? The cmd thing worked by the way.

    Damn it. Still getting the same problem as before the system recovery. Can't start computer, not even in safe mode. Still getting a quick bluescreen, and then restarting it.

    Let's see, if we can look at your computer booting from an external source.

    Please download OTLPE (filesize 120,9 MB)

    • When downloaded double click on OTLPENet.exe and make sure there is a blank CD in your CD drive. This will automatically create a bootable CD.
    • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.
      • Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps HERE
    • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
    • Depending on your type of internet connection, you should be able to get online as well so you can access this topic more easily.
    • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
    • When asked Do you wish to load the remote registry, select Yes
    • When asked Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning, select Yes
    • Ensure the box Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
    • OTL should now start.
    • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:
      /md5start
      eventlog.dll
      scecli.dll
      netlogon.dll
      cngaudit.dll
      sceclt.dll
      ntelogon.dll
      logevent.dll
      iaStor.sys
      nvstor.sys
      atapi.sys
      IdeChnDr.sys
      viasraid.sys
      AGP440.sys
      vaxscsi.sys
      nvatabus.sys
      viamraid.sys
      nvata.sys
      nvgts.sys
      iastorv.sys
      ViPrt.sys
      eNetHook.dll
      ahcix86.sys
      KR10N.sys
      nvstor32.sys
      ahcix86s.sys
      nvrd32.sys
      symmpi.sys
      adp3132.sys
      mv61xx.sys
      userinit.exe
      explorer.exe
      volsnap.sys
      winlogon.exe
      nvraid.sys
      consrv.dll
      winsrv.dll
      svchost.exe
      /md5stop
    • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
    • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
    • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
    • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.

    Hi again, I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner but I've been busy these last couple of days... Anyway, I successfully installed the OTLPE on a flash drive, but the problem is that I'm not sure how to boot my laptop from it, seeing how the guide on booting from CD doesn't match the interface of my laptop's BIOS. I did however took a picture of my screen showing how far I've gotten... I'm quite sure I'm in the right place, but I don't know which option makes it boot from my flash drive. Thank you

    Move #7 (USB HDD) to 1st position.

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    Okay, I placed the USB HDD in 1st position now and saved the changes, but when I rebooted it still booted with windows... Do I have to do anything else to make it boot on the flash drive?

    See if another working computer will boot from the USB you just created.
  13. Emerik

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    It didn't seem to work... also, when I started my computer (the one that is working) and tried plugging in the USB again, the computer is not able to find it.

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 46,335   +252

    Possibly something wrong with that USB stick.

    Do you have another one?
  15. Emerik

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    Yeah I do, but it is identical to the first one... and it doesn't work either. Although the first one could be found when I was installing the OTLPE...

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 46,335   +252

    I can only assume you did something wrong when creating that bootable stick.
    Format it and retry.
    Maybe bad download as well, so download fresh file.
  17. Emerik

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    Well, I can't format it since the computer can't find it?
  18. Broni

    Broni Malware Annihilator Posts: 46,335   +252

    Working computer?
  19. Emerik

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    Yes. What I meant is that the working computer can't even find the stick when running in windows, in "My computer". And I can't even find the other stick that hasn't even been used. It's like the drivers for the stick didn't exist. This happened after I tried booting my stationary computer (working one) from the stick.

    I'm not sure what to tell you except for getting another USB flash drive.
  21. Emerik

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    Okay, I will get a new - just making sure you understand what happened:

    I installed OTLPE on my first stick. It didn't work on the laptop, and when I tried booting it on my desktop computer it didn't work either. When I started the desktop computer in normal mode again and inserting the stick (when in windows) to see if there was anything wrong about the files, the computer couldn't find the stick at all. After that, I tried inserting a new stick, (which was identical in model to the first one) the computer couldn't find that one either, making me think perhaps something happened when trying to boot it with the desktop computer.

    Anyway, there we are. I'm getting a new flash drive in a few days, and I'll see if it works. Thanks for the help.

    Okay, I tried with a new flash drive now... I installed it like last time, and inserted it in my laptop and booted it. I chose the "Boot with temporary device", and this time it could find the "USB HDD etc..." The problem is that when i pressed it, nothing happened except for a text that appeared in the corner that said "Remove portable device. Press any key to reboot". But when I pressed a key the only thing that happened is that I was sent back to the "Choose temporary device to boot with"-menu. That happened over and over.

    What I did notice when installing the OTLPE to the flash drive was that in the eeepcfr-program's cmd-window which opened after running the copy, there were some facts about the copy, and here's the log to it:


    Program - usb_prep8.cmd - 01 dec 2007 - Date = 2012-01-19 16:46:58
    Prepares Windows XP Setup LocalSource for Copy to USB-Drive

    *** BEFORE YOU START: *** Use 2 GB USB-stick with High Read/Write Speed
    First Format to Make Bootable USB-stick with FAT FileSystem, FAT = Faster
    such that USB-stick has NTLDR Bootsector and is seen by BIOS as Harddisk

    Use PeToUSB.exe with Settings: Enable Disk Format with LBA FAT16X

    OR Use Existing USB-stick with NTLDR Bootsector and Multi BOOT.INI Menu
    GUIDE: http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=20089

    For AUTOSTART: COPY PeToUSB.exe in your usb_prep folder
    http://gocoding.com/page.php?al=petousb

    For UNATTENDED Install make Changes in usb_prep folder:
    Change Product Key in winnt.sif and Change $OEM$ folder to your needs

    FOR USB-Harddisk make 1900 MB partition at beginning of the USB-Harddisk
    Use FAT Format and Set Active OR use PeToUSB to Format such partition
    rdummy.sys makes Fixed USB-Harddisk seen in XP Setup as Removable Device

    Tryck ned valfri tangent för att fortsätta...


    Program - usb_prep8.cmd - 01 dec 2007 - Date = 2012-01-19 16:54:40

    Prepares Windows XP LocalSource for Copy to USB-Drive:

    0) Change Type of USB-Drive, currently [USB-stick]

    1) Change XP Setup Source Path, currently []

    2) Change Virtual TempDrive, currently [T:]

    3) Change Target USB-Drive Letter, currently []

    4) Make New Tempimage with XP LocalSource and Copy to USB-Drive

    5) Use Existing Tempimage with XP LocalSource and Copy to USB-Drive

    F) Change Log File - Simple OR Extended, currently [Simple]

    Q) Quit



    Enter your choice:

    I just closed this window because the copy was done, but I notice it say "Windows XP", which might have to do with it? Maybe the OTLPE isn't compatible with Windows 7 64-bit?

    It has nothing to do with Windows version as it boots independently.

    Try to boot another working computer with the USB stick you just created.
    See if it works.
  24. Emerik

    Emerik Newcomer, in training Topic Starter Posts: 51

    Okay, tried it on other computer and got the same result and text... "Remove portable devices" Press any key to reboot" This will reappear when pressing a key.

    It looks like you're doing something wrong with creating that bootable USB stick.
    It doesn't seem to be bootable.
