  1. The only solution I found, is this issue occurs when a pirated copy of Windows 7 was used. Did you use a real Win 7 disk or a downloaded copy? The only 2 cases with a solution was both people used a downloaded copy to install Win 7, then bought a real copy, installed that, fixed the boot issue.
