I am having a huge problem and I am desperate, I have win 10 x64 on partition C and win 7 x64 on partition D, all worked fine no hardware issues or anything but I decided to run a fixmbr from avast on win 7 (that because I could not perform the sfc /scannow), I also made an usb device with windows copy because I wanted to start some repair functions on win 7 then the system started re-installing so I did stop it after 3 seconds it has run, it created a new drive J: (not removable one) and I wanted it gone so i removed the content inside. On next reboot the system has trown this errors:PXE-E01: PCI Vendor and Device IDs do not match and then: Reboot and select proper boot device
Please help this is mega urgent I have work to do and files on the system, they should be there, I know I haven't started the format process and before my system was set up so I could choose between win 10 and win 7, I suspect FIXmbr for (it has made a backup somewhere), I think I lost my genuine win 7 cd (the win is original btw.), but I have win 10 originated from win 7 and kept win 7 on D partition, I am on a laptop now:(((((
EDIT: maybe the usb with win 7 I downloaded from internet has caused this (I didn't started installation from it since windows versions did not match), I think that maybe when I run the installer for 3-5 seconds the unmatching windows did some changes, I have win 7 x64 home premium (I might have OEM but I did download home premium without OEM tag), I am trying to find the link but it was a legitimate software from sevenforums I think
my spec can be checked since I made two posts under this username
I want to preserve the original setup since it was fantastic )switching between win 10 and 7)- maybe I can use ubuntu live cd (it has some boot capabilities) but I need guidance
this is my full farbar spec of win 7 I did before this happened: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/629852/strange-programs-in-zone-
alarm/ primary boot is win 10 hence the forum post
