To fix your mbr, boot from your windows 7 dvd, choose your language, time and keyboard input.
Click "repair computer"
Choose "command prompt"
Type: "bootsect /nt60 ALL" (without quotes )
Edit: hit "del" to enter your bios to set your dvd as primary boot
agree this is the es easiest way, or just use search function next time...
I believe he tried it. Otherwise, I would second this.
Maybe it's because of upgrading instead of doing clean install?
Maybe some vista config/files is left behind and prevents Windows from being activated via boot load.
Your MBR is corrupted, or some other important file
You can also try removing ram. Maybe one of your sticks is bad.
Not a bad idea to confirm ram is good by booting to M$ memory diagnostic tool. Then if that passes boot to the Win 7 dvd and repair mbr as noted. I always do a full system backup before doing any major change. You can always restore the backup image. Good luck
i think this is not MBR, but smth worse: saulob wrote
So his computer doen't boot from DVD either. That looks pretty much like my situation here:
If Seven DVD won't help, maybe Vista one will.
Make sure you have your boot device order set to CD/DVD first boot device in your bios. Put in your Vista Bootable DVD in Drive boot and repair mbr.
Also, I had that problem once. I finally figured out the disk was dynamic after deleting the volume and remaking as primary disk basic it worked.
I think it's better now to wait that the thread maker gives us feedback rather than speculating.
cant see your ram going bad all of a sudden think it was working before so best stick to things youve changed and work through them first
Thank you very much guys.
Unfortunately I gave my computer to a friend and will only get it tomorrow morning, so I need to wait until tomorrow to try all the tips you all gave me.
I remember that I tried using the DVD drive as primary boot option without success, gonna try again. I burned the Windows 7 on another DVD on 1x speed and created a repair disc too. I will try to fix the MBR from the repair console.
Tomorrow I will tell you all what happened.
Boot into windows PE or BartsPE or some PE. Remove the loader, reboot everything will be fixed.
The blinking cursor only happens when your comp won't take the SLIC emulation in the grub boot code.
The loader takes effect before Windows booting, so you see the black screen.
Gonna do that. Fixing the MBR will not work, right?
So, how can I remove the loader with BarsPE?
And, if this loader didn't work I can't use any other loader?

I had this happen a week ago after using the first Hazar loader on my HP dv7-1104tx notebook.
I could boot from my DVD so went to a cmd prompt and used these two commands:
I re-booted and back came my BCD menu.
I then tried the Hazar-Orbit30 loader and Win 7 activated and all was well.
saloub, I'd try and fiddle your BIOS to boot from your DVD or even see if you could boot from a bootable USB key and try those commands.
But, where can I find that BootRec.exe file?
