Within seconds you can feel the power this tool extends to you. I had the pleasure of speaking with one of the developers, and was impressed by the level of patience and support he offered. In my time as a developer I have come to ask myself 'Does this tool save me time? Is it going to stay relevant long enough to justify using it?'. My question was quickly answered when I sent an email requesting a feature I needed and received a response soon after informing me the feature had been added to the new release. Great work guys!

Waiting for support?
By Clarence on October 4, 2017

Did not work for me. I have emailed for help, but at this point have not heard back. I will update this review if a solution is found.

Update: Support got back to me and Ali was able to help me with the problem. My comp works now.

It will save me hours on future repairs
By Keith on January 19, 2015

Had a failed HD that was cloned. The clone would not boot with a 0XC0000225 error. Tried all the normal fixes using BOOTREC and DiskPart. After 2 hours of failed fixes, found this utility. Thought I'd give it a try. It took a few minutes and fixed the issue. The drive now boots fine and is fully functional. Best $20 utility I've ever used. I can see it will save me hours on future repairs. I was concerned this was a scam or useless utility, but it is the real deal.

All I can say is WOW. Holy SH*T. This tool works. After being a knuckle head and messing with my SSD my Win 7 Ultimate System went into a reboot loop and just would not start. I searched in a PANICKED FRENZY for a solution on the boards - everywhere. After I noticed that when using my recovery CD that my system was not even recognizing my OS on the right drive - somehow I managed to stumble on to the NeoSmart site. They even offer step by step how to fix your MBR - but when I tried it it did not work. Then I saw the option to just buy their CD and it would fix the issue. I was like yeah right but I was desperate. Ordered it, burned the ISO image onto a CD using another computer - booted off of it - their menu came up - I clicked repair and BAM - my system booted after I restarted it! That's INSANE!!!! It really works. Just Buy It. Thanks for a great product.

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.

Easy to use!

The recovery disc was fairly easy to produce, even for a novice like me and has succesfully got my computer working again where I thought I had used it for the last time after repeatedly trying to restore the system.

I can't believe it worked
By Craig on February 12, 2014

I had recently cloned my harddrive to a larger one, and Windows 8 broke. I tried following instructions on the internet, about doing bootrec etc etc, and it didn't work. As a last resort i bought this disc and it fixed the problem within minutes. Im abit speechless really.

EasyRE Essentials (Win 7)
By Gerry G on January 27, 2014

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you

EasyRE Essentials (Win 7) fixed my Blue Screen problem that NOBODY could fix. Used your product as last result before resigning myself to doing a sys restore, and it worked! No need for a system restore and the long process of re-installing all the software. Best $ I ever spent on software. U guys rock!

Unusable
By Victor Filepp on May 13, 2014

I will be happy to change my review, but right now I cannot use this at all. When this boots it does not recognize the mouse or keyboard on my computer and is therefore completely useless. Hopefully the tech support paople will get my email and provide a fix.

PC Repairer
By Ross on March 20, 2016

The Auto Fix tried but did not fix the Windows 7 repair boot loop after failed windows 10 upgrade. But it did find a System Restore when all other tools said there were none. Let EasyRE use it and PC now back up and running. If I had not found this software and decided to try it i was ready to wipe the drive and reinstall after spending 8 hours over two day trying every repair trick known. Even if it had not worked the other tools will be most handy for recovering files and with its access to the internet I'm sure I will use it often. Have already had to repair more than a few failed Win 10 upgrade and now this is the first tool I will try.
