I am at my wits end. I have tried just about every option I can find on the internet and nothing works. I even broke down and went to the dreaded PC repair place down the street and they too, said they cant fix it, but please pay us $100 for trying.
Here's the scoop. Its a home build PC and has been running flawlessly for 3 months. I turn off the PC and go on a week long vacation, and when I come back and turn it back on... nothing. I get a message that says Missing MBR, press cntl alt delete to restart. My first line of defense was the windows 7 install disk, and running a startup repair. What I immediately notice is that there is no windows installation listed on my drive... its a blank white box. Ok, it says if no installation is found to install the drivers for the drive. Its an SSD drive so, there are no drivers per say, however whats odd, is when I click the load drivers button, it shows me the SSD that windows 7 is supposed to be on, and all the files appear to be intact, and there. So the drive has not been erased, its just not booting. I have 3 SSD drives. 1 is for the OS only, and the other 2 are for programs. The PC repair place wanted to just wipe the SSD drive clean and do a fresh install of windows. That would be fine and dandy except for the fact that with a clean registry, I would no longer be able to run the vital programs on the other 2 SSD drives correct? I'm really stressing out here, and my business is losing money by the hour while my computer is dead.
I have seen a couple posters in here suffer from what seems like a similar problem and after amazing help from the fine folks here at BC, they have had success. The process seemed a bit grueling, but in the end their computer was working fine without having to do a clean install of Win7. With all of that said, I beg of thee fine gurus out there to lend a virtual hand at helping fix this issue. I will even donate $100 to whoever can fix my computer running again. The donation can be made to you, this site, or a charity of your choice. I'm that serious and desperate to get this computer running again.
PS, the one post that really caught my eye was this one. This is the type of help I think I need...lol! http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/439320/windows-7-will-not-boot-no-matter-what-options-i-try/
