Ok, so first things first, I am not a retard, I have been using pc's all my life, I have had very few problems ever, and never one I have never been able to solve on my own with some google help. this week I have spent many many many hours researching and trying fixes for this with no success at all. It seems my "Configuration Registry is corrupted" whatever that means I have no idea really. My pc boots fine, runs fine, this "problem" occured over a year ago and I managed to fix it then as it was a MBR problem. This must be some sort of "leftover" problem, anyways after much much googling the only fix I've found is using a repair disk or install disk to do that whole Bootrec /rebuild bcd thing. All good, this is what I would like to try. LET ME STRESS THIS NOW: I KNOW WHAT A BIOS IS, HOW IT WORKS AND THAT IT IS SET UP PROPERLY, it is set correctly, the cd drive is booting first. (95% of the googled threads are people asking if the guy has it set up right) Now, I put in my original windows 7 install disk OR my windows 7 repair disk (homemade), with either one, it boots straight to windows every single time. I thought maybe something was up with my repair disk or something so I remade one, same files, sizes, etc, all the same. I tried the install disk on another pc, works correctly. Also, I can read/write to my cd's when I have the OS booted up. everything works 100% fine. As I said my OS works totally fine and I've been using it for a long time now. I wanted to disable DEP, and that's when I noticed the "Configuration registry corrupt" message. I downloaded easyBCD and it also confirmed the "Configuration registry corrupt" message and was unable to access it. So....I'm totally stumped....haha help? Thought I'd take a shot here as I read these forums occasionally, before I wipe the damn thing and start over. The thing that confuses me most is I have not been able to find another thread of someone with this problem or one similar where there computer functioned perfectly fine and never had any errors or other problems.
