My windows 7 pro computer was working perfectly. I created recent restore points. After adding a second hard drive for storage. I realized it had an older W7 OS on it. From within my current OS I formatted the storage drive and it went through fine. All was working well until I rebooted.
The OS would only go so far to the Windows flying logo and then reboot. All safe modes did the same thing. Windows repair kept saying it could not be repaired automatically even with the disk. Ran Chkdsk and scanned for virus - no problems found.
When I looked at restore points I did see the most recent one (same day) was for a critical windows update. I tried running several restore points (which went through successfully) but windows would do the same thing.
One thing that baffled me was after running successful restore points, when I went back into system restore it showed all the restore points again even the most recent ones, as if I had never run any at all?
This system would take me days to rebuild. If anyone can help it would be very appreciated! And I would sing your praises!
