Windows 10: Can't boot or install nor repair
Can't boot or install nor repair
I tried to dual boot windows 10 pro 64 bit with windows 7 but I put the wrong disk in and ended up installing win 7 32 bit. :'(
Now windows 10 won't boot Iv tried running repair but still same error. Bad_info or something with blue screen, but it boots into 7 and I can view my files have put 64 bit is on over 32 but still can't seem to repair my 10 not even with USB.
Do I need to completely lose my stuff or is there a work around?
Thank you in advance
Roundabout way but this is possible
1) On another computer download Free Macrium and make BOOTABLE USB.
2) Boot Macrium on your defective machine.
3) Take image of your W10 partition - you'll see why - we aren't going to RECOVER it. just get data from it. Copy to external HDD etc.
4) In the Macrium menu do an Explore image and browse to the image file you created. It will create a drive letter then you can browse it with the file explorer in the Winpe bit of Macrium and copy data files. Copy them to HDD you saved the image on.
Note - for the future always keep DATA and OS on separate HDD's / SSD's /partitions --- that way when re-formatting etc you don't lose Data.
As for W10 - after recovering your files you'll have to do a clean install -- you won't need to re-activate.
OboieOne, You need an external source to copy the files to. Assuming I understand you correctly, Jimbo45's way will work real well. But, if you can see the files from Windows 7,can you copy them and paste them to an external drive from within Windows 7?
You can also copy/paste from the Windows 7 Recovery console http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...y-console.html
You can also Recover your files using any Linux Live CD. Emergency Kit - save your files from a dead OS - Windows 7 Help Forums
You have several options. There is no reason for you to lose your files.
My computer was setup using 2 HDD and EasyBCD boot menu. That file seems to have become corrupt or damaged as I am getting a message; Reboot and Select Boot Drive or insert boot media in selected drive and press a key. I have followed Windows Repair...
I updated to Windows 10 about 2 weeks ago. Today on starting the PC, the initial BIOS splash screen displayed a while longer than usual then Windows decided to enter an Automatic Repair. I had this happen about a year ago in Windows 8 so repeated...

Upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1 a week ago. 120G SSD, Windows image sits on 111 gig partition with a 450mb "recovery" partition showing up (??) in disk management and diskpart. Installed Intel RST drivers today and it has been downhill ever since.
