So my friend installed windows 7 home premium recently, and ran 7loader (I'm unsure as to version number) last night. Upon rebooting, she is immediately taken, after a very brief flash of the windows boot screen, to a solid black screen with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. I have tried everything short of hitting it with a hammer to get it to boot. The recovery partition won't boot, it refuses to boot from a liveCD (Yes I did make sure CD was first in boot order), and it's pretty much a brick right now. Anyone else had this happen to them? and is there any possible fix? It's an HP dv6. EDIT: Have also tried ctrl-alt-del to reset, resetting bios to default values, booting from win7 disk, booting into safe mode (can't even get to that screen). It's also passed memory diagnostics.
