For some reason I was in the middle of encrypting my c: drive, and started messing with another program. The next thing I know I am unable to log in to windows, even under safe mode. At one point I was able to enter my encryption password, then I go to a screen with 5 options, startup repair, system restore, system image recovery, windows memory, and command prompt. Yes, I did try to to a system restore, and I am getting error messages. At some point, I stopped having to enter the encryption password, and if I do not hit F12 when my computer loads, I get an error message stating missing operating system.

Long story short, I have been following a thread under Windows 7, but I am unable to register because there is something wrong on there end. Right now, I have downloaded the Windows 7 64 Bit repair disk as an iso, and burned it on a disk. Below is a link to show what file I downloaded. This allows me to go through bios, and load through my CD Drive, and use command prompt.

Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs The NeoSmart Files

I have been following the post below:

Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times - Windows 7 Forums

There is one main difference between their example, and my computer, on the first line after List Disk, I have 2 disks, 0 and 1 both online. Furthermore, under list partition under disk 0, Disk's 2 and 3 both primary and active. However, disk 1 was a * next to it, and says recovery, but I am able to switch it to either active or not active (shown in step 3). Also, I was never able to create a disk 4 under disk 0, as shown in step 3.

I need some real help, and would be much appreciated. My guess is that it has something to do with that their example only shows 1 disk under list disk, whereas I have 2.

A word of caution, if I may. I referenced to the same download and also linked to the ISO d/l you mentioned above in a thread some time ago & the Bleepingcomputer Torrent Police publicly flogged me with a wet noodle :P for doing so even as it's a system rescue tool and not a pirated OS or the like. Apparently BC frowns upon such behavior... why I don't know.

I always like it when I can address two comments at once :).

The owner of this website has chosen to implement certain policies regarding the recommendation/use of various .iso files/disks which can be downloaded or were formerly downloadable on the Web. This decision is based on a 2010 determination that the use of such files...constitutes a violation of the MS EULA governing the O/Ses involved. Early in 2010, the use of such CDs (which had been a normal part of life) became a forum issue, courtesy of the the efforts of Microsoft.

About a year ago, the policy was instituted and became a forum issue handled on a case-by-case base. Some Staff knew...some Staff did not know that there had been a change. Most members did not know.

Earlier this month, the following was posted as a ready reference for all.

Public Posting Of Policy

I believe that the disks available at the NeoSmart website...fall into the above category.

I hope that clarifies any question any member might have about such files.
