invalid arch-independent ELF magic
By John Lomas on June 18, 2017

I just bought Easy Recovery for Windows 7 Professional, downloaded the .iso, burned a CD and tried it. It did not boot properly and gives the error "invalid arch-independent ELF magic". I tried burning with a different tool, same result. Clicking on your "support" button only opens an empty Chrome browser. Can you please provide some support? What is wrong? How can this ELF magic error be corrected? Thanks for some quick help! jonixima@gmail.com

This product saved me money

This product is just simply awesome. I have a photography company and when my computer crashed I was in the editing and processing an order I had absolutely no back up to my pictures and was faced with having to reshoot several session at my own cost. However I found this program and was able to retrieve my pictures saving my hours of time and several angry people. I would recommend this product to anyone with a crashed computer.

Awesome!

After clicking the compress files option on disk clean-up (BIG mistake) I could not boot back up. I tried everything to no avail. I downloaded the ISO per the instructions on your website, and in less than five minutes, all is well. I can't tell you how much average people like me appreciate your product.

Many thanks!

Windows 7 was stuck in an endless reboot loop, and the various start-up repair options failed. Did some searches with Google and found Easy Recovery Essentials web page. For just under $20 I was prepared to try it. Downloaded it, put it on a CD and tried it out. It did its magic using the automatic repair option on the first go, and that was it. ALL OK! Magnificent! I can now go to sleep and it's only 11pm I didn't feel like spending hours backing up the hard disk, wiping it, formatting it, installing windows, running all the updates, installing the software and restoring the data manually. I have better things to do with my time! Many thanks.

Fantastic time saver

After spending hours researching and failing to fix my windows 7 boot problem this tool did the job in minutes. I can wholeheartedly recommend this product to anyone with windows boot issues.

Thanks to NeoSmart

To recap, October’s Microsoft updates caused 8 of the HP computers (two different 6000 models) in my computer lab to not boot to Windows 7 afterwards. 7 other HPs (three other 6000 models) done at the same time had no problems. Mike (above) suggested that KB2952664 was the problem; I can neither confirm nor deny that. For 6 of the effected computers, System Restore fixed them, but two had no restore points to recover too. Those two were the problem.

All the usual fixes failed and all were tried multiple times. Windows repair would not launch from the installed OS; running a Windows repair from a bootable CD don't fix it. FixBoot, FixMBR, RebuildBCD was sucessful, but didn't fix the problem. Restoring the registry from backup failed. The Windows 7 reinstall (‘upgrade’) in place wouldn't work as Windows wasn’t running. At first the Boot Manager Error was 0xc000000e (required device not found) which changed to 0xc0000428 (can verify signature of ahcix64s.sys) after the BCD was rebuilt. Also failed was deleting and regenerate the boot record with EasyBCD run from the XP boot.

In desperation (I’ve been working at this for a week) I bought the Easy Recovery Essentials repair disk from NeoSmart Technologies. Ran it (a customized Linux boot disk) and noticed in the messages, “Reverting Failed Windows Update” – or something to that effect. I have not seen any repair techniques nor a manual way to do that. Re-boot.

Nope, still no boot. But something was different, the computer had started the internal Win7 repair, and was not showing just the boot manager error. After three more cycles of the internal Win7 repair, some which took a long time, the Win7 boot was restored. Yay! I have confidence the same steps should fix the other one. (not yet done - this is not a fast process!)

Lessons: When dual booting, make sure the System Restore setting are correct and don’t interfere with each other. Booting to XP will blow away Win7 restore points. Have a good backup of your data. (I did, but often make good money off people that don’t!)

Finally, thanks to NeoSmart and their “Guaranteed to work or your money back.” I was fully prepared for a long phone call their tech support, but didn’t need it. And Boos to HP and Microsoft for causing the problem in the first place, this wasn’t the first time.

With their support, it worked
By Brian on February 7, 2017

My situation needed additional support and they pointed me in the right direction. At that point, I was successful in recovering my Win 7 boot loader with their recovery disks.

It works. My only regret was the 5 hours I wasted before I pursued this solution. I wished I would have bought their solution earlier.

Couldn't get past security

No. Program could not get past security. Waste of money.

Can't download!
By Nan Engen on July 9, 2017

I just purchased East Recovery Essentials Professional, paid for with PayPal. It won't even download. Need help please.

Fast, easy, and affordable
By Nikki on February 5, 2013

This was a fast, easy and affordable solution to my immediate problem. I really appreciate the fact that this is available for quick and easy use online, no more waiting by the mailbox for a full recovery disc. Thanks again! Nikki
