    Would really appreciate much needed help here guys as my pc gets stuck on the black screen on boot up, I have a HTPC which Im running windows 7 ultimate x64, yesterday I had a message saying to validate my system when I done that when I first installed windows 7 about 8 months ago.

    So, I had to find a loader and I have used about 3 up to now (tut tut) with nothing happening? then I come across a loader called Hal7600 which was supposed to sort all the validation bit out, then had to reboot and now im stuck on the black screen with cursor on restart, tried using the repair on the dvd but it does not really help attall?

    What other ideas could I use to get be back on again as I cant really reformat as I have lots bluray and games which I will lose.:eek:

    Try the usual loader recovery instructions.
    Code:
    ##########################################################################
    #   1   -   Recovery
    ##########################################################################
    Is Windows failing to boot after you installed the loader? Just do the following.
    
    * Boot up the PC from your Windows installation disk
    * Select the "Repair your computer" option
    * Select "Command Prompt"
    * Input "bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force" (without quotes)
    * Restart the PC
    
    Note: If the above doesn't fix your boot issue then use the command "bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force" instead. Just make sure you remove all USB flash drives before you use the command.
    If you get back into Windows run WAT Fix (see my signature) and then post an MGADiag report once it's complete.

    Very much appreciate the help daz!

    Just tried inputing the info through the command prompt on disk but still not getting no where? after putting in "bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force" you get a basic description of what it does but does not tell you to restart, you just click the button the bottom of page then let it do its thing.

    Also tried "bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force" and it still seems to hang on the black screen but looks like it wants to boot up????

    I guess the loaders not causing it then. Maybe if you press F8 during boot and try safe mode? From there you might be able to uninstall HAL.

    Tried using the f8 option at start through safe mode but again it loads up but stops at the black screen yet again?

    At the command prompt do you have to refer to the drive when typing that in or it kinda does it for after you have inputted the relevant command across.

    What other options do I have to get me into windows now as its started to be a nightmare :mad:

    You don't have to hand it a path since 'SYS' handles it.

    You could maybe shrink your partition and install a second Windows 7 along side your current partition. Once you're then in Windows you could try to manually repair the system files since HAL makes backups.

    Maybe a thought daz? I have two hard drives in my machine, one has a running xp on it and one the other drive (2TB) I have partitioned off 17 gb and the rest is space for blurays games and music stuff.

    Would it be possible to run through xp and like you say and manually fix the files from there?

    What files does Hal replace by the way?


    I have also thought about reformatting the 17gb windows 7 partition but i rememeber last time i did that it ended up formatting the whole drive and re-partitiong again on fresh start up?

    Its all sooo complicated this!?! o_O lol

    halle bloody lujah!!!!!!!!!!

    Im into windows FINALLY, I managed to download a recovery x64 cd which allowed me to use the correct command prompt features to repair the startup.

    Now im gonna uninstall this dreaded hal7600 and use that WAT fix thing.


    What would be my next step in activating my OS now??

    No you need to uninstall rc version of service pack 1 and install the final version. after that you can reinstall the loader.

    Back up your data, you will need to install fresh.
