Hello People:

 

I know I do not have the required info as stated in the "Preparation Guide" however I can not boot this computer into Win 7.  I do believe it has a virus and here is what has been tried.

 

1. I checked BIOS settings and all looked correct.

 

2.  Booted the computer into Ubuntu from a thumb drive to see if I could access files on the HDD and I could.

 

3. The computer has a Seagate HDD in it.  Downloaded and ran Seatools for DOS from Seagates website and the HDD passed all tests.

 

4.  Used a windows CD to access repair options and applied startup repair

 

The computer was on the internet browsing when the browser shutdown and then other software started to shutdown and finally the whole machine shutdown and rebooted.  Upon the restart it just sat at a blinking cursor in the top right.  When turned on the computer goes through the post and when it should boot windows it just shows a blinking cursor.  This is my sons computer and I still need to boot back into ubuntu and copy his files over to an external HDD.  Short of reinstalling Win7 I do not know how to beat this bugger!  Any help would be appreciated.

My son decided he couldn't wait any longer so he had me reload everything last night.  I appreciate any work you have done.  But he made it a mute point.  Dang kids anyway.
