  1. Sounds like the exact problem I have, but at the same time very different. I have a corrupt partition with W7beta on it. couldn't access it. now it seems to have vanished completely. I gave the leads a quick wiggle and it appeared but installation still bombed out. I think it may be a problem with the sata cable but the symptoms sound identical.

    I know it isn't much help, but just to let you know you're not on your own!
  2. I have a dual boot and windows 7 died it froze and I had too hard start ever since it won't boot.I have other data on this drive that loads and runs fine.Win7 did give my sata drive low marks seagate 320g.I was just going to wipe the whole drive
    and try and remove the boot manager.My install dvd of the beta never loads for a repair option Im guessing it's not included
    with the beta.Xp still runs as usual.
  3. how do you edit the boot manager so that it doesnt give you an option to load win 7 i want it to go straight into vista

    Put your Win 7 DVD in the optical drive and boot to it. on the first screen, select "Install". On the second screen, in the lower left corner will be the option to repair.
  5. would not repair so i reinstalled and it works.
