Hii all,

I am using window 7 now is a month ago from when I installed..I use in my laptop without any problem...But today when I switched on I received a black window with messeg.....

WINDOW BOOT MANAGER

Window failed to start.A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Window installation disc and restart your computer.
2.Choose your language settings,and then click Next
3.Click Repair your computer

If you do not have this disc,contact your system adminstrator or computer manufacturer for assistance

File: \Boot\BCD

Status: 0xc0000001

Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

So this is what I get when I switch on my lap top

So I have try to put DVD for window 7 and to install again but I get this error again

\Boot\BCD is corrupt and unreadable.please run the Chkdsk Utility.

BCD Means Boot Configuration Data

Hi Yassin, welcome to NST.
You don't need our recovery disk. It doesn't do anything that you can't do with the W7 DVD.
You need to boot your PC with the W7 DVD in the CD-ROM drive tray, and your BIOS set to boot CD/DVD before HDD.
You should see a message "press any key to boot from CD" if your boot is set up properly with CD before HDD.
Press a key, then select "repair your computer" and "startup repair" from the following screen.
Do this 3 times in all and W7 should boot again.

OK Boot W7 DVD, "repair your computer", but don't do startup repair, from the second screen choose the recovery console (command prompt).
From there, run a chkdsk /f against your W7 partition.
It will take a while to run, but when it's finished try the startup repair sequence again.
