    I ran RemoveWat on my Windows 7 32bit partition and now I am unable to boot. Seems it has screwed up something on the drive.

    I can boot fine into the 64bit partition and then look at the 32bit partition and all data is visible and accessible.

    My issue is I have heaps of apps on that 32bit partition and I really don't want to reload everything as it's a development machine.

    I've tried Wat Fix but that has made no difference.
    I've tried running a System Repair and again no go.

    The machine starts at the System Boot Manager, I select the 32bit partition, then the screen says unable to boot and gives me two options. Run Repair or Reboot. As mentioned Repair does not resolve the problem.

    I also thought if I ran a Windows Upgrade from the CD that might sort things out. However the upgrade needs the system booted to run an Upgrade. Can't boot.

    Any ideas appreciated. thanks

    By this do you mean you booted from the installation media and attempted to do a repair install?

    RemoveWAT hasn't been support for a couple of years and is not a program you want to use. Once you get this all sorted out, you'd be well advised to get rid of RemoveWAT and use a different method of activation.

    Do you have a system image you can restore? Can you boot into safe mode?

    Everyone advice's not to use RemoveWat. So why on earth did you use RemoveWat in the first place?
    You are being punished for being ignorant :D

    Oh don't get me wrong ... I hate the politically correct thing and in fact now days I don't care if I am or not. Truth hurts, honesty is the best policy and all that. I thought both posts were hilarious. I'm not sure the OP will return and continue the thread but C'est la vie, mon ami.

    @FreeStyler, I wish it was possible to filter out and members who posts are regarding to RemoveWAT :D

    P.S. talking out loud to many beers

    As much as we all hate RemoveWAT, I doubt it can it really cause the boot problems described by OP.
