Hello all. Built a new machine from Newegg components, bases on the ASUS A78 motherboard. Installed a Patriot Blaze SSD and my old hard drive from my old machine.
I originally installed Windows 7 from an old disk I had from a previous laptop I owned. The computer never ran right and was acting up, so I popped for a Windows 8 Full Version disc and it seemed to work okay. But at this point I was running off of Win 8 but Win 7 was still on the SDD. I think it had a .OLD extension.
Well, tonight, everything came to a halt. No warning.
When it tries to start, it goes into Startup Repair, but nothing gets fixed. There are some problem signatures identified:
ProblemEvent Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem signature 01: 6.3.9600.16384
Problem signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 03: unknown
Problem signature 04: 2
Problem signature 05: ExteneralMedia
Problem signature 06: 1
Problem signature 07: OsVersionMisMatch
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.265.1
Locale ID: 1033
Of course I tried rebooting off the Win 8 installation disc, but it just goes into the StartupRepair. I would sure appreciate any help.
