    ty, whether I can use Hyper-V for whatever or want another version of win 7 on a vm, I do want to learn to troubleshoot the program or explain it...

    Ok we're getting some progress, or lack thereof...

    widows repair could not fix this computer automatically,...

    ty again...

    OK Nice!

    Go to command prompt option.

    There you'll need to try fix the boot loader:
    bootrec Guide for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10

    Code:
    bootrec /FixMbr
    bootrec /FixBoot
    bootrec /RebuildBcd
    Not sure I got them in right order though.

    Can you see if your VHD gets recognised?

    Try to see if there is a c: or d:

    Code:
    cd c:
    dir
    or
    Code:
    cd d:
    dir

    there's only x: recovery drive my and e<------my cd drive

    I'm not sure which directory to run the commands, I tried x\sources, then from x:windows/system32

    after I type bootrec / rebuildmbr i get creating a VM win7, on win 10 pro i3 gen 9 machine-x-system32.jpgcreating a VM win7, on win 10 pro i3 gen 9 machine-x-dir.jpg

    disk part /list disk says no fixed disk to list

    - - - Updated - - -

    The first time I opened DOS it opened to X: sources, I typed in bootrec /rebuildmbr, I thought it said successful, then i hit exit and it rebooted to install. I went back into DOS and tried the command again, and it gave me all the parameters list...

    Do I need to set settings back to default and see if it boots to my vhd?

    No fixed disk... This is weird.
    And is the VHD still there in the VM settings?

    What settings do you mean?

    The commands had no effect since the disk isn't visible.

    I'm just doing my thing in DOS, apparently unsuccessfully (-'

    I'm sure you'll let me know if I need to change a setting in hyper v.

    You didn't answered the question.


    Well I'm a bit amazed here about that diskpart outcome. That's as if the VHD isn't in settings anymore.
    Is it?

    It's there...

    I just rebooted

    re-ran hyper-v it loaded windows, i went into dos, diskpart, no disks...

    I said should I go back to default settings on hyper-v console untick dvd to none N/M

    After a quick search on no fixed disk, check cables, ha, and missing VM driver...

    I always ran disk cleanup aka/ cleanmgr, on 7 machine, down to the third level/ more options where it would delete any reserve Re partitions. Dumb question, would The x: drive and directories still show up it wasn't there on the VHD File?
    It always showed when I had to do something in there on the physical machine

    No.
    The VM has no real cables to check.

    If your VHD is still added in VM settings, it should have been visible in VM.
    So, is it still in settings?

    Then there might be an issue with your VHD file.

    The x: is normal: that's your DVD's 'mini system'.
    You should have been able to see a C: so I suspect some issue with your VHD file.

    Important to check:
    Can you inspect the VHD disk, like so:
