    Hello

    The severe weather around Chicago the other day caused a lot of us to loose power and unfortunately this time one of my PC's was on during the at that time and when I went to turn it back on, I received a rude BSOD which stated that my 'boot device was inaccessible'. I narrowed down the problem to the Windows 7 boot loader that was used upon installation; the modified 'Windows 7 Activator' utility that modifies some of the startup files.

    Upon running 'Startup Repair' via the Win 7 DVD (which failed), I found the logs which stated the problem was a 'bad driver'. The filename is 'oem-drv64.sys' which is located in the System32/Drivers/ folder within Windows. I have tried renaming that file as well as renaming all the files within C:/Windows/Setup/SCRIPTS/ folder (i.e. SetupComplete.Cmd) thinking they would be bypassed, however, I have had no luck.

    Is there a way to possible re-install the Win 7 Activator utility (or the updated version thereof) to repair the needed files or possibly other things I can do via the Command Prompt to completely remove all the offending files as to successfully boot up? The only other thing I did was rebuild the boot loader manually via the BCD type commands. The system loads fine up until it tries to process that oem file, but nothing more. I can access all my drives, so that is not an issue.

    I need someone that knows specifically how to completely remove this Activator or how to re-install it via the command prompt manually.

    Tnx
