Cannot boot into Windows
Hey guys, I am currently having a problem with my main rig (running windows 7 64bit) that has me pretty stumped.
Upon boot I am notified that the system was shut off incorrectly. As anyone would try I go for start windows normally. This fails, as does the automatic recovery. I bust out my windows 7 disk image and recovery fails even when booting into that. Alright whatever its literally just a boot drive so I wipe it and do a clean install.
Update windows, restart. Works normally, install drivers , antivirus ect restart. System hangs on windows logo forever. Cannot boot normally as it hangs, cannot repair itself. Reflash windows again, update ect, restart. Same thing. I try to manually select the drive as a boot device and it says the bootmgr is missing…. Alright fine dead drive. I order a new one.
Now the same thing happens with a new drive. I have narrowed it down to the nvidia drivers that cause the hang and it boots in safe mode.
I have tried
Different sata slots, a different video card that uses the same drivers. Everything works great until it gets some nvidia drivers.
I've also tried 4 different versions of the drivers including ones older than the ones it was using before it quit working
