    Need Help Configuring Boot Setting on Cloned Drive

    hmm--that's it? I should have thought of that. thanks!! Addendum: Well, that did the trick. I also was pointing to the wrong drive letter for W7 to boot--I fixed that too. A big lesson I learned is to have Easy BCD installed on both drives in case one won't boot, you can change the config...

    OS Won't Boot After Install in Other PC

    Windows 7 Upgrade Gone Bad--Disk Won't Boot

    We tried all of the options that the recovery CD allowed. The black screen seems to be an epidemic for Vista. I just advised the user to move forward with the Windows 7 upgrade. It was taking longer to try to go backwards then to just move forward. I appreciate the help.

    Windows 7 Upgrade Gone Bad--Disk Won't Boot

    Well, we're not out of the woods yet, unfortunately. Now it seems like the OS will boot, but it boots into a black screen. You can see the cursor, and it will even go into screen saver eventually. Cannot open task manager, etc. I did many searches online and it looks like this is a common...

    Windows 7 Upgrade Gone Bad--Disk Won't Boot

    Excellent. Thank you. He does not have the OS CD and we don't have Vista here at work--so this is his only option. It should work, I believe. Thanks again. Addendum: Dang, when I boot into the Vista repair disk and select the option of Repair, I get a pop up window that says "this...
