I think I broke my laptop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Laptop: Asus G46VW

Being the idiot I am, I somehow deleted my recovery partition after removing Ubuntu from my laptop. I must have messed with some more crap because now my computer only boots straight to the bios.

Not only that, but my hard drive and msata are not show in the boot sequence but other settings in the bios show that the driver are there and are being recognized. I even tried to insert a USB with windows 7 ultimate loaded on to it too wont even be recognized.

I didn't know that I could mess up this hard but I guess I did...
Anything I could do, my laptop is vital for my university classes, I'm really stuck here

You'll have to reinstall windows, I did that a long time ago. Live and learn, that's all I can say. If you have another computer, you can put the hard drive and get your files off it.

Did you follow a guide on how to make a USB bootable drive, or did you just put Windows 7 on the usb drive?

Try this:
- Enter the BIOS setup menu by pressing and holding F2 key when powering on.
- Switch to "Boot" and set “Launch CSM” to Enabled.
- Switch to "Security" and set "Secure Boot Control" to Disabled.
- Switch "Fast Boot" to Disabled
- Press F10 to save and exit.
- Press and hold ESC key to lunch boot menu when the notebook restarts.

Also you can try to boot from the flash drive.

Not only that, but I recommend that you back up your data with a portable hard drive. First boot into something like Ubuntu from a flash drive, or a windows recovery disc. Then just copy your C Drive over to the new drive, and work on your windows machine. If all else fails you still have your data, and that can be re implemented in a fresh install of Windows, or Linux.
