Hi y'all,

I have a laptop now and didn't follow up on my last thread like I should have. There wasn't an answer in 2 minutes so I got bored & opened my laptop. Yeah, I know, that's my fault & I'm working on it. So, long story as short as I can make it (I'm a VERY verbose person) -

 

I used to download stuff from torrent sites, and never really had any problems. Then I didnt get the game that I wanted from the torrent sites so I decided to download the game from a simple Google search link. I wont do that again!! My apps that I was running all turned off one by one, then my computer turned off and I knew I was in trouble. Sure enough, starting it back up again got me an "Invalid Boot Option" message. After trying my Kapersky installation disk, my repair disk that I made the day I bought the computer, and going thru the F8 system trying to repair, re-setup, and then tried to revert to factory setup, nothing helped. I kept getting that message.

 

I came here (see closed thread at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/479278/newish-windows-7-dead/) and sought help. I've finally gotten his suggestions done. I'm pasting the log below. I await the next step ... btw, now I'm not getting an invalid boot option, I'm getting something about no operating system.
