Windows not listed in Recovery Mode on Install Disc

I was using iTunes today and my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit froze. After a while it blue screened.

When I turn it on, it says "Bootmgr image corrupt. The system cannot boot."

I tried using the popular method of inserting the Windows 7 install disc, choosing Repair this system, then selecting my Operating System listed in the recovery console.

My Windows 7 install is not listed as an operating system however. This happens with both the 64 and 32 bit of the Windows 7 Ultimate install disc. If I select the "Load Drivers" button, it shows all my drives and I can browse through a flash drive/disc if it is inserted, but I cannot open my C drive. I am using a normal SATA hard drive and it has showed up in the past.

I burned a copy of Hiren's BootCD and tried to use the MBR utilities on there, but everytime I select a tool from the menu, it prompts yes or no to load each individual driver. No matter what I select, by the end it simply fails.

  1. I had the same problem.
    Fixed doing this in the recovery console:


    cd boot

    bootsect /nt60 all

    (Where d: is the unit of your CD/DVD)

    Hope this works!
