Hello everyone. Hoping someone can tell me how I can fix this boot issue and get my windows 7 working again without deleting my programs, files, data etc (Basically without restoring my pc from scratch)
Everything was working fine until i started installing "sonos" wireless software for controlling audio, After that i restarted my laptop and started getting this black boot error message as shown below
Things I have already tried but no luck
1) I tried pressing f8 and clicked on restore to last working settings option and that didnt work
2) Starting windows in safe mode but took me back to this same error message
3) placed my windows 7 installation disc and clicked on Repair Windows. I did the startup repair and when it completed what was weird now.. it got passed the boot error message and saw microsft text loading but then went to blue screen of death, then once restarted my computer again back to this "Windows Boot Manager" issue
It will only go to BSOD (blue screen of death if i choose start windows normally) when laptop starts booting up. I
What i noticed that looked a bit off is when i tried to do a repair windows using my windows 7 disc the partition said E: . Shouldn't it be on C Drive? cause i never saw an E Drive when using my computer. Windows was always installed on C Drive
I attached some photos so you can see what i mean and something about system volume is corrupt when i clicked on Diagnosis and repair details from the startup repair menu since Startup repair said it could not fix this problem automatically
I also did this command BCDEDIT at command prompt from my recovery options. and if you look where it says WIndows Boot Loader It also says partition E:Drive. Should i change that to C or no that's normal?
Can this be fixed without having to reinstall windows and lose all my data? If someone can fix this willing to pay you $150 via paypal
I don't think my harddrive went bad or not working cause on System recovery options i clicked on add drivers and i can browse all the folders on E drive which when logged in on windows should be C Drive but everything seems to be there photo below
