    Greetings,
    I am new, I have an issue that has completely got me stumped:

    My Windows 7 PC won't boot into Windows,
    instead I get a screen with: OEM7GRUB 0.4.4 and system recovery won't work,
    and I've tried so many different methods and discs.

    [​IMG]

    It started after downloading and installing Windows updates,
    about 175 updates, 6 of these it told me couldn't be installed until I restarted,
    and from then it never got past the GRUB screen.

    Please help, I'm sorry if I've posted incorrectly :(

    What's the model name and model number of that Dell computer?
    What's the "service tag" number and/or "express service code" number on it?

    How exactly and what did you use to install Windows 7 in it?
    Did you install Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional or Ultimate, 32-bit or 64-bit?

    It's not a Dell computer, just the monitor, custom built at the shop with Genuine Windows 7 ultimate x64, AS rock motherboard, Intel i5, Kingston memory, Samsung 850 SSD.

    Since there's about 175 updates waiting to be installed, I'm going to assume that a recent install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit was done in that computer.

    According to the images you posted, there appears to be an issue with the operating system that needs to be confirmed or discounted, so do the following in that computer:
    Download MGADiag and save it to your desktop.
    Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program.
    Click "Continue".
    Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).
    Click the "Copy" button, the leave the report window open.
    Paste the report back here in your next reply.

    No not a fresh install, been running fine for about 18 months , until I decided to update, it appeared that all the updates installed fine, it said 5 updates would be installed after re boot or words to that effect, I let it do it's thing , but it never again booted up; I was never able to get to the desktop, no safe mode, I've actually paid Microsoft as I wanted to give it a red hot effort before giving up; but nothing came of it; I've just decided to format and start again, I wish I had been more vigilant with backing up! Everything seems to work fine with the fresh Windows install today, thank you.
