Long story short, Acer Laptop Win 7 Home Prem. X64 was working fine & then I dropped it five feet from the ground. Then when I started it hung on the Win 7 Logo. Then I inserted the reinstall USB & entered command prompts & now it's not even displaying a logo. I'm assuming something in the hard disc got partially damaged.
There are 2 scenarios.
1] When I go to BIOS and leave the hard drive on AHCI mode & try to start up, I get the 'No bootable device -- insert boot disk & press enter' error.
2] When I go to BIOS and the hard drive on IDE mode & try to start up, I get the 'BootMgr is missing press any key to restart' error.
BIOS detects hard drive. EaseUS partition manager detects the drive but can't recover any boot partitions.
I already tried the Startup Repair many times over, no luck.
Here are some of the commands I entered in to the command prompt from the reinstall disc and still no luck.
bootrec /FixMbr bootrec /FixBoot bootrec /RebuildBcd chkdsk /f C: chkdsk /r C: chkdsk
Also did these :
Command #1 – diskpart Command #2 – list disk Command #3 – select disk X Command #4 – list partition Command #5 – select partition 2 Command #6 – active Command #7 – exit
And tried these but ran into errors on one of these steps I believe so I didn't complete the steps...
bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup c: cd boot attrib bcd -s -h -r ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old bootrec /RebuildBcd
Nothing worked. Hard Drive is a Hitachi HTS545050B9A300 . I haven't formatted the disc as I have important files on there,
Any little bit of help is appreciated. Thanks!
