Solved: Windows won't boot after drive format and fresh install
Hi All

Another one...I just formatted my C-Drive and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 ultimate on it. After restart, I got the following screen - See image attached. Now Windows can't boot at all. I tried using a system repair disk but it doesn't work. I doubt if it is a hardware problem, since I can access the boot menu and its options, but as I said, running the repair disk fails, I keep on getting that screen when it restarts.

Any ideas? Can it be my MBR that is screwed? What options do I have available?

Thank you very much!

Did you try reinstalling it again - just in case it was a bad install the first time?

Hi golddust. Yes, tried installing again, but no luck. Any other suggestions? Can it perhaps be my MBR?

yeah wipe the hdd also delete the partition. Create a new partition during win7 install.
