How do I deal with a System drive (Windows/7) that will not boot?
Posted on 2014-10-18
I have a HP p6320y PC that won't boot. BIOS does not see the system disk drive. I attached the SATA drive to a functioning Windows/7 PC and saved all the folders (User,System,...) to an external UB drive) using GetDataback for NTFS.
I rebooted the PC. Windows came up and then a message appeared briefly saying I have a disk that needs to be checked and that I have 10 seconds to press a key or it will start the disk check. I pressed a key. Windows came up. I brought up Disk management and Disk management recognizes the disk!! It shows:
basic disk 931.51gb
E: 102MB NTFS healthy (active, primary partition)
F: 920.51GB RAW healthy (primary partition)
G: Factory Image 10.9GB NTFS healthy (primary partition)
What steps do I take to get this PC back into its' original form?
