Hope someone can help me out here.
Ive just done a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64bit (off a upgrade package using the custom install)
This all works well apart from the need to have the windows dvd in the dvd drive for widows to load up (Looks as tho im missing the boot files on my harddrive)
How can i sort this?
Thanks in advance
Ok, so here are the things that i have tried since i asked this question.
Ive tried running windows repair 5 times one after the other, it comes back that there is not boot problem every time
Have confirmed that my C drive is (Healthy, System, boot, page file, Active, crash dump and primary partition) as shown in disk management
If i remove the windows 7 dvd it wont boot from hard drive comes up with insert system boot disk and press enter
If i leave windows 7 dvd in it will boot off dvd and run windows as per normal
Last night i decided that i must of made a mistake in the "fresh install" so completed another but alas that same issue is present.
See if you can get hold of a new hdd and then install into that HD (or get hold of some kind of linux distro and then try to "initialise" the disk, then create one or two partitions and then try to install again) as it seems like your computer is not able to write the MBR (master boot record)
But in the root questoin, I think you should see at least the following
(if you are on a 64-bit system) Program Files (x86)
