I have a problem! One of my old computer who was running windows Vista just decided to stop working, corrupted registry due to a virus, could not save it. Long story short i formatted my C: drive (D: drive had all my backups) and decided to install Windows 7 (Ultimate) via CD (because i had no Vista CD). It worked fine and booted but, i decided to reboot it because it was kinda slow and then i had an error saying Windows\System32\Config\System was missing or corrupted. I decided to reinstall Win7 but this time, after the starting Windows screen it kept gving a 0xc00000e9 error. I reinstalled again (and formatted again) but this time it just gives a BSOD after the starting windows screen or just a plain black screen, reboots and then starts again, shutdowns. Like a reboot loop. I tried booting Linux Mint from a usb flash drive and it works correctly, what's the problem with Windows? I'd like to fix it so i can give this computer to one of my friend whose computer no longer work (motherboard prolem). What should i do? Thanks for helping.
Edit : It now gives a Missing Bootmgr "press ctrl+alt+del to reboot" message when attempting to boot from harddrive (usb is linux mint and cd is windows 7 cd)
Edit2 : Starting to think HDD might be dead, i have one with two partitions but, i can still play and check all my backups in the D: partition without problem via USB linux mint.
