Not booting after BIOS update - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
I installed windows on another drive and it is now booting, so something must be wrong with the boot config. I can access my ssd now, where do I find the boot config, and how do I fix it?

I'm not a professional at handling these errors so please do not bash me if it doesnt work or creates more problems but this worked for me in the past.

If you have your windows 7 cd, throw it in & put the CD as your first boot device, that way it loads windows 7 setup. Enter recovery console & in the command prompt field see if you can run the basic scan checks for your drive to see if it finds any errors. You can use the fixboot command as a last option. type fix mbr or fixboot.
One of those should create a new boot file for your OS.

*I'm not sure if it can delete a partition on your HD or not, so please use at your own risk.*

I found a guide online, you can refer to it if you need.
