Ok, so I had windows 7 installed on my computer and everything, but I acquired a better hard drive and I wanted to clone the drive over. I started the process (using HDClone on Ultimate Boot CD), but didn't have the 6.5 hours to wait at the time, so I cancelled the clone pretty much right away. However it seems to have broken the install it was trying to clone. I had to run startup repair to start the computer, and it would only log into a "temporary" profile. Using the blocky windows style from like 98. Most of the icons were broken (the image) and nothing would run. Couldn't open windows explorer, control panel or anything (got multiple error messages), so it was pretty much useless. I tried opening calculator and that worked, so not everything was broken. Anyway, I cursed under my breath and decided I guess I broke it. So I quickly installed 7 onto the new HDD which is what I am on now. I copied my documents over to the new install, but I was wondering if there is anyway I could recover anything like installed programs, settings, etc... Or a way to fix the old install. I don't want to start over again on this install from scratch if I don't have to. Thanks for any help, and I hope I am in the right section. This is my first post.
