My windows 7 has service pack 1
I have tried to delete the bootcat.cache
It says cant locate bootcat
I am search from the c: on the doss
Could it be located anywhere else
Bootcat.cache will be located inside C:\Windows\System32\codeintegrity folder. When you boot from the Windows install DVD, your actual C drive may be mounted and given a different drive letter. Navigate to each drive letter and use the DIR command to check for the folder Windows. The drive which contain that folder will be your actual C drive.
In the above example, you will find the file inside D:\Windows\System32\codeintegrity folder.
To do this in the easy way, you can use Kaspersky rescue disk. It will automatically find the C drive and place a shortcut in desktop for easy access.
I booted DVD
Went to dos done c: check dir and windows on it so I entered at c: CD windows\system32\codeintegrity
then at c: type dir all that is there is
08/19/2013 10:08pm. <dir>
08/19/2013 10:08pm. <dir>
06/10/2009 01:19pm 12,523 driver.Stl
1 file(s). 12,523. Bytes
2 dir(s). 12,948,688,896. Bytes free
When I try to del boot cat.cache it says could not find c:\windows\system32\codeintegrity\bootcat.cache
Am I doing this right
Looks like Bootcat.cache is missing from the system and that could be the reason behind the issue. I found an issue similar to yours in another forum and it is solved by copying the file from another working machine. Then he did a repair install of Windows 7 which fixed all his issues. Do you have another working Windows 7 machine (same architecture ) to copy the Bootcat.cache file ? . If not, please specify whether the installation is 32 bit or 64 bit. I will upload a working copy for you.
I don't have another window machine
I have 32bit installed that would be great if you could upload one for me
How would I install the bootcat could you give instructions on how to put it on my drive
Thank you sooo much
Boot from the Puppy Linux CD and it will give you access to the hard drive partitions in a GUI interface. Your hard drive partitions will be mounted and given names sda1, sda2 etc instead of letters C ,D ..
Plug your pen drive and it will be also shown.
Identify your C drive and copy Bootcat.cache file to the Windows\system32\codeintegrity folder.
Reboot the system and try to boot in to Windows. If it succeeds to boot, immediately do a repair install using a service pack 1 media.
