Great Software Works well with HP computers
My computer was slowing down so I foolishly installed a registry defragger with hopes to speed it up. Next time I restarted I got disk errors, windows errors, and the computer was in a state of infinite reboots and blue screens. The Windows repair disk was worthless and found no errors. I thought that all was lost and I would have to wipe and start from scratch when someone linked to this software from some random forum when I was researching cures. I had never heard of the product before, but figured that I might as well try it out as a last chance, fortunately I was able to use a friend's PC to burn the image. I get home, run the recovery tool, and within 30 minutes I'm back into Windows like nothing happened. Amazing!
The most surprising thing is that this program is relatively unknown, but I'll definitely be recommending it to anyone who has serious problems with Windows!
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.
Cloned my running W7 Pro System with ATI to a brand new hardware with M2-SSD, but it won't boot.
After downloading the ISO-Image and preparing an USB-Stick in a few minutes, this great tool fixed all problems! It really works fantastic!
2 days of hell, fixed in 2min..... The worst thing is none of the MS tools worked either at command line level, or the recovery options not even MS tech support could not help.
I admit I was very sceptical, but wow.
Well done guys, great product.
I have a old PC with Win 7 where I installed a Ubuntu partition. In some point I tried to restore the Win 7 to factory settings and the Grub got losted. I got only the Grub rescue screen. I didn't have a installation's media, so I was not able to reinstall the SO. EasyRE repair my boot and I was able to use the Win 7 again.
Had a half-dead Vista laptop, and nothing, but nothing, that I could do made a difference. I could get it to boot partially in various modes, but it would always stop at a certain point and go no farther. I downloaded this disc, burned it to a CD and booted off of it, chose Automatic Recovery, and PRESTO!!! Everything is working perfectly. Couldn’t be easier. Thanks so much!
Durante dias trate de solucionar el problema de la pantalla azul que no permitia iniciar windows, no se podia reparar con el cd de windows ni con otros softwares. Pensaba borrar todo el disco y empezar denuevo hasta que encontre este programa, y logre repararlo. Ademas que su ejecucion es sorprendentemente rapida c: .
Gracias por la solucion
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.
Downloaded the Windows 8 Recovery Disk after trying everything, couldn't even use startup recovery discs, and it saved the day!
Initial problem: HP Touchsmart 600 windows 7 upgraded to 8.1 Blank screen after the logo Eventually turned into a blue screen error code Completely locked out
Windows 8 Recovery walked me through the process with a user friendly interface. Geek Squad initially wanted to reformat the drive and reinstall the windows platform $$$.
Thanks again NEOSMART!!! You are NEOSMART!!
