My Windows is suicidal.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Not really. This is just very annoying.

Yesterday I installed a 9800gt to run a 3rd monitor and fold on. When I booted up to install the drivers instead of booting to windows it booted into the Windows 7 repair/recovery tools.


Now you're wondering why did I have the repair disk in the computer, right? It's not in the drive. wth.gif
I've tried rebooting several times, it doesn't even try boot into windows, just straight into the repair tools.
Startup repair fails.
CHKDSK finds only 3086KB of disk space (but no bad sectors) and 597 KB available on the disk.
-It's also running off X:\windows\system32 (there were previously no X: drives in my pc)



It could possibly be my ssd failing... A while back I made THIS THREAD that could be related. I was having issues with my MBR running away.... those issues mysteriously went away though.

Can you f8 into safe mode and check the boot tab in msconfig to see if there is something abnormal in there causing it to boot into recovery mode?

 

Here is mine:

It launches the repair tools "disk" when I attempt to launch safe mode, or any mode.

I'd be firing up a Linux Live CD (System Rescue CD, Parted Magic, etc.) to make sure everything was still there.

I'm guessing that it's just a software glitch locking you into recovery mode. X: is just the default recovery console letter. If you type in C: or D:, it might let you flip to those drive letters.

You probably need to run some of these commands to fix your boot:

(Just a guess - not sure which ones. /Fixboot, /FixMBR, /RebuildBCD?)

Thanks for the info!

Unfortunately I don't think there's anything more I can do for my windows installation. ntoskrnl.exe is corrupt and I can't repair it via startup or cmd. I rescued the 2 files I needed from my ssd via linux mint live usb.

I'll be wiping it in a few mins and replacing the ssd in a few with a Crucial M4 128gb thumb.gif

Ack, well that sucks. I guess you got a dud. My OCZ Solid 2 30GB did the same thing. (randomly corrupting files)

You'll be much happier with the M4. Those things are incredibly stable and fast. biggrin.gif
