    I have been asked to repair a Dell laptop running Windows 7 that just stopped booting to the OS.

    It has shown all of the following, and when checked on a second PC with a docking bay, it shows all partitions as RAW, but active.

    Missing Operating System (latest)
    BootMngr missing

    I've tried using the tools on NeoSmarts software / boot disc, but nothing work, and I'd like to extract the important doc / photos before reformatting the HDD and doing a fresh install of Win 7 .......

    Can anyone help with the RAW problem ?
