Cant Boot Windows Help!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Okay so I recently decided to reinstall windows and do a complete format. Im running windows 7 64 bit ultimate.. On a gigabyte intel mother board. For some odd reason it will go to the last stage of the installing process then it will reboot and go to a screen saying windows did not start correctly, gives me the option of safe mode etc etc etc or start windows normally. when i choose windows normally it trys to boot then cuts off and reboots back to the same screen????? before when i was running just fine, i dd notice one of the gpus on my card was out, i have a 7950gx2 and it used to read both cores then all of the sudden just read one. i read somewhere that could be the issue but i have no clue, any help??? thanks

Now, you seem to have an issue where you cant boot off of your CD drive. Just to make sure, go into your BIOS, and make sure every boot option is set to your DVD, and keep an eye on it as it boots. My computer for example, requires you to press a key during boot to boot from DVD.

Can you boot to safe mode? If so, I'd recommend doing so, backing up your files, and reinstalling windows.

Failing that, you can use your Ubuntu disc to do the same.

OK. I'm not familiar with your motherboard, but what happens if you unplug the hard drive, and hammer F12 (boot device options) as it boots?

I'm just curious to see if it can boot from the DVD. SATA is hotpluggable if you have it set to AHCI (I'll assume you do, having an SSD), so you can boot, plug the drive in, and get your stuff off.
