After a virus attack, my emachines e525 will not boot. On powerup, the notebook will post, then shut right off, post again, shut off, post.......forever. Using a widows 7 disk to try to recover, windows loads files, starting windows, repair your computer,system recovery options, shows no values in the os/partition size/location list. I am not familiar with windows 7 and don't know where to look for drivers to populate the list. I can use a generic boot disk with windows pe to explore the contents of my hard disk and view/edit/run files on the hard disk. I would rather try to recover this thing than slash/burn/reload windows 7. Please help.
thanks

Hi Jeff and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I personally can understand your frustrations and your feelings that Bleepingcomputer and its staff or members have failed to help you in your time of need.

But that failure should not be reflected toward the Bleepingcomputer web site, as it is just a web site.

It could be that your post was over-looked or no one who read it knew of any solution to solve your problem.

It has to be remembered, that the staff at BC are volunteers who are given a staff title by the site Admins based on their helpful advice and experience.

But the staff (with the exception of the MRT team) are just like any other member, we volunteer our time to help other members, that is if we know a possible solution and not just an educated guess.

It is my hope, that you give us a second chance the next time you run into a problem with your computer.

Kind regards.

Bruce.

I dare say that the problem wasn't insurmountable for our staff as was implied as a possibility. And we are all volunteers here, including the Malware Removal Team who probably spends more time on a single topic than any others of the staff.

The plain and simple truth of the matter is that your topic fell between the cracks. With the volume of topics and posts for those topics, the list grows at a prodigious rate which can result in a topic getting buried, which is what I suspect happened in your case as this forum is very active.

I'm glad that you were able to affect a repair to your computer. Good luck with it in the future.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
