Cannot boot from Windows 7 installation DVD
Posted on 2012-04-02
My Windows 7 system will not boot, and there is a screen stating that Windows could not start due to a recent hardware of software change, and that the bootloader was missing or corrupt. When I attempt to boot from the Windows 7 installation DVD, there is a progress screen showing that Windows is loading files, and then another error that Windows cannot start, and instructing me to insert the installation disc. Status: 0x0000098. I have never encountered this when attempting to repair Windows 7 with the installation disc.
