I cant boot into windows or DVD

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
When I start its stuck on "starting windows" so I turn it off and it says something like repair so i do that and it goes nowhere!

I cant even boot into a CD/DVD drive to reinstall windows or repair it.

Right now Im on a live Ubuntu USB stick.

Please help

Have you tried going in safe mode, hitting F8 when you start booting? You can also select last config that worked. If none of those doesn't work. Check to make sure the cable and power connectors are on tightly. Might even try another cable and see what happens.

Sometimes, setting the boot priority in the bios to the dvd will help it start the disc to repair/reformat. good luck.

if setting bios to boot from the cd/dvd doesnt work, use a usb drive since you know that you can boot from that. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-grub4dos.html

After you bios goes away and your pc start to boot. Before you see the windows logo start tapping the F8 key and you will get safe mod option to show. and it will look like this.



If that doesn't work and you got another pc, we can make you a windows os install to a usb drive and use that then.

Did you pick the other option to see if it would go into windows after you choose "last known working configuration"?
