Hi, I'm in Hell!
I've recently built a new Windows 7 box, not my first computer built, but the first in a few years. Every step of the way has been problematic, and now that I finally had all the hardware issues sorted, I of course had major problems with Windows 7!
When I started up the system, I just got a black screen with a blinking cursor immediately after the bios screens. No ability to boot into windows at all. The Repair tools from the Win7 DVD said Everything's fine. I went through a dozen options in the console and finally broke my mirrored drive up and installed windows again on one of the drives. I still have the second drive, which should have my original install and all my data but won't boot on it's own. So I want to boot into the New Win7, and Repair the other Win7. When I start the DVD, it just goes straight to installing a repair onto the new install. Can you help me?
