My hubby's PC is running Win7 32 bit. Typically he "hibernates" his PC rather than shutting it down. Yesterday he hibernated the PC as usual and then proceeded to remove the power cable while he was re-routing various cables. He has his hard drives mounted in front loading bays (no need to open PC to remove the drives). The fan in one of these bays was failing and so he decided to move his system drive (while the PC was completely un plugged) to a different bay. When he powered on he got the message that there was no valid boot device. He powered off and put the hdd back into the original hdd bay and Win7 still will not boot. I've tried running the startup repair - which Win7 goes directly too and also running a repair your PC from the actual Win7 install disc. I have re-started it this morning and first got a black screen with "Starting Windows" but missing the coloured logo. Then after a few minutes "Windows is loading files" with a grey progress bar. Next a blue sky type screen and a dialog box titled "Startup Repair". The dialog box also says "Your computer was unable to start". There is a constantly moving progress bar above a line of text "Searching for problems..." This dialog has run close to a dozen times since the problem first occurred yesterday. It takes a very long time to complete and when it does returns the answer that Startup repair was unable to fix the error which is reported as being "startuprepairoffline". The PC will not boot at all not even to safe mode. Of course he has not created any restore points, so that's not an option. My PC also runs Win7 32bit - are there any "fix it" discs I can create to help using my PC? What are the next steps I can/should take? If at all possible I'd love to surprise hubby when he gets in from work with a fixed PC.
