Remove Annoying unsuccessful win 7

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello lads,

I have had this problem for while now and I want to get rid of it... First I'll try to explain as best as I can how.. I think... it happened.

One day I was installing win 7 on an SSD and somehow it didn't installed successfully... So I tried to install it again and well it worked. The problem is that the bad install was left there. I then upgraded to Win 8 and haven't had problem until recently. I use two 500GB disk in Raid 0 as storage and I created a partition on it to install a new, fresh Win 7, since I needed to use some programs that doesn't run on Win 8 properly.
I had set in the Bios to boot on the Raid disks where the win 7 Partition is as default and I didn't actually thought about it. I have always been prompted with the "which OS do you want to run?" thing and I always choose the win 7 or the win 8 OS but there's a third OS to choose from.. Oh yea, the old, bad Win 7 install... But I never choose it ofc.

A few days ago, in preparation to Foldaton, I was going to OC my cpu a bit higher and went to the Bios and then I see the default Boot drive where the HDDs and not the SSD, so I change it and the headache begins.

The problem is that whenever I boot from the SSD it starts to load windows files screem and tries to repair the error.. ofc it never repairs it and gets stuck in an infinite loop




When promted to choose what OS I want to start and click the 3rd, and last, bottom option



I get this error...



I just want to get rid of it.

Do you guys have any Idea how to do that? I've been looking the web but no one has this problem like I do. I just want to get rid if it. Not fix it.

Yes, When I boot into the SSD it tries to repair the old win 7 bad install...

When I boot from the drives it lets me choose what OS I want to start... Win8, Good win 7 and bad win 7.

Hopefully this works.
  • Boot into windows 8 >
  • Start menu? (if you have one)
  • Right click my computer and click on properties
  • Select "Advanced system settings"
  • Select Startup and Recovery settings
  • Select Default OS to windows 8
  • Change other settings?
  • Click OK

Well it does make it default.. but doesn't fix my problem.

I deleted the partition with good win 7 install and I still have the old, bad win 7 option...

I had this issue before...It part of the boot sector thats been left behind. When youinstalled windows 7 you had more than one HDD installed. Even though you designated a main HDD as C: it wrote boot info to another harddrive.

Now, I didn't really get rid of the MBR but I was able to make sure that my new OS booted directly and I didn't have to sit and choose. Control Panel/Administrative Tools/ System Configuration/Boot.
Then I deleted the old MBR and left my Primary. This enabled the system to boot directly to my main OS without reading old boot sectors.

Now when I reinstall my OS I make sure that theres only one hard drive so that nothing gets written anywhere else. hope that helps or is atleast a part of the issue.

Forgive me, you're in RAID..but the install will still write info on the created partion. deleting the successful instal will not delete the old unsuccessful instal. There is away to delete an old MBR but I am not completly sure how to do it and I really don't feel comfortable telling you to do it.

Now that the win 7 on the OS is gone it booted directly into the SSD and still gave me the option to choose... I deleted the bad Win 7 like you suggested.. I hope that's the end of it. biggrin.gif I'll try it later. Folding right now. tongue.gif

Thanks alot! + rep both of you.
