I am having problems with Windows Vista and don't know what caused this.
When I turn on the computer, it brings that loading image with the green bars and then it restarts right after that. It does the same thing when I try to login in Safe Mode.
I ran System Repair many times, but it can't fix the problem. When I scroll all the way on the bottom of the report it says "system volume on disk is corrupt." I've also tried command prompt and have tried the following commands
Found these commands by searching on the net and thought might fix the problem so I gave it a shot and no luck.
bootrec /rebuild - it didn't give me an option to types yes then tried bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup ren C:\boot\bcd bcd.old bootrec /rebuildbcd
I took the hard drive out, and plugged it on my other computer's external USB device and backed up my files onto that computer.
At last I gave up and though I should just do a fresh recovery, but I can't because I can't find the CD-Key. I checked everywhere for the CD-Key -- on the computer, to the CDs that came with the computer, and all the paperwork and couldn't find it anywhere.
So does anybody have a solution to fixing this OS, or how I can recover my CD-KEY at least with some program on a bootable CD?
