currently blocked from following posts associated with Win 7 fail to repair; no visibility of restore points; no visibility of current system image.  Last repair in Safe Mode (via DVD) indicated "partition table does not have a valid system partition" ... reports as "fixed" and then reboots to a single arrow (moves via mouse but otherwise blank screen ... Ctrl-Alt-Delete has no effect.


I have backed-up restore points and relatively current system image on other media; unfortunately would need to be DVD b/c bios is not seeing thumb drives.


Not sure where to go next; obvi, would prefer not to go back to clean re-install ;-)




now that I've posted, I'm able to follow the thread ... but still would welcome any help -- here's the post I'm following on Bleepin' -- https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/435162/windows-7-wont-boot-not-even-safe-mode-repair-doesnt-work-either/


sorry -- Win 7, totally updated ... 64-bit ... running MalwareBytes  and MSFT SE


last week suspected virus activity and ran the protocol -- RKill. HitmanPro. ADwCleaner -- did not reveal issues but within 24-36 hours, here we are


further to this ... even in current state, I can see and access the problem computer including main c: hard drive and connected peripheral drives





Moved from introductions.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
