Seems like a silly question but...
I have a customer whose Windows 7 O/S just died (constant reboot at startup, no safe mode etc.), and on failed startup repair it gives BadPatch as the reason. System restore doesn't work. Looks like it's going to but then at the end it says it failed.
I pulled the drive out and put it in my PC and CHKDSK repaired some minor things (miscalculated space marked as free, etc.). No better though.
There is no sticker on the laptop, as this was apparently downgraded from Windows 8.
The OS is version 6.1.7601.2.1.256.1. Is this enough to tell me if it is pro or home? I can find no info online.
