Good day,

 

I am encountering an error at boot named StartupRepairOffline and from what I can tell, the computer is trying to boot from the incorrect hard drive. I believe the hard drive letter labelling has switched since my boot hard drive is a 250GB Maxtor and my other two hard drives are both 1TB Western Digitals. Windows is attempting to boot from the "D" drive (which is supposed to be a 1TB WD drive) instead of the original "C" drive.

 

I would really appreciate if someone can assist me as I have never encountered a problem like this before.

Also I should state that I attempted to follow the instructions given in the thread listed below which I found during my many Google searches on this topic. The user JSntgRvr gave some instructions to someone else in need and I followed them exactly as he said but I have come to a dead end at the point where he gives the config data to enter into the fixlist.txt file to place onto the flash drive. I am unfamiliar with that program so I don't fully understand how he knew what data to input based on the user's log posted.

 

Please assist me in anyway possible. Thank you in advance.

Why not simply disconnect the non-boot drives...enter the BIOS and change the first boot device to the optical drive...then attempt the repair?

I tried that but unfortunately it did not work.

Good news! My problem was solved using the tutorial listed below. It also works for anyone having the winload.exe is missing error on startup.
