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.
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.
