Hi, I used the loader it worked perfectly and I even updated windows to the latest. It restarted , etc, etc everything was working fine. Today morning everything went well perfectly , when my system froze suddenly , I tried to open Task manager and noting happened. So I restarted directly but it failed to boot. It is saying "Reboot and select proper Boot device or Insert Boot media in the selected Boot device and press any key. When I go to Boot setup I see this : Please select boot device P3: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7280S Realtec PXE BO3 DOO Enter setup I tried The realtec (think it's my SSD ) Is it ?? and clicked enter . Same message showed up. The I entered setup and there I see the same options in the Boot option #1 (Realtec) and #2 (Optiarc DVD RW) I tried to repair using the windows set up cd : -> failed. In the system recovery options I don't see the operating system. It said , if u don't see OS load drivers ... ( I did'nt try this ) Restore point is not there too. It is saying , "unknown OS from an unknown local disk " . I have a 120gb SSD (OCZ Vertex4) and have everything installed in it without any partition. No internal drives , just a 500gb External HDD . I also tried the bootsec commands I see on the support threads. Nothing happened. Still the same. I tried Bootrec.exe /FixMbr - "element succesfully created" earlier but now it says "the system cannot find the path specified" (I gave lot of other commands like bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force and bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force (DO I have to so anything from the help menu that followed this command ?? I just closed CMD and restarted . Same message again ... (Reboot and select proper boot device..) What do I do ?? Could this be a hardware problem in my SSD ?? Because everything was working fine untill the system froze.. PS : Sorry for the long post .. I have no idea what I'm doing .. just following the threads here .. so I did'nt know what to include and what to exclude ... What do I do now ?? I don't want to format my SSD . Thanks in advance and please let me know if you need any other info from my system with instruction on how to fetch it.
