#1
Hi, i bought a external hard drive and really wanted to have windows on it, so i installed windows 7 with some program, ok the problem is when i start the windows just dont boot, just appears a black screen with a blicking cursor, i think it is because mbr or boot are damaged because i removed ubunto and grub recently and i fixed it with partition wizard, i eard too i can repair this with windows re but it dont work on external hard drives, is some way to use bootrec or re without windows re, plz i really need this

and some help here
 


#3
Have you tried booting from the Windows 7 DVD and going to the repair console? From there you should have access to the command prompt. Try entering "BootRec.exe /fixmbr" and/or "BootRec.exe /rebuildbcd" (without quotes). Any success?
 


#4
no, the dvd just deny everything related to the external hard drive
 


#5
What do you mean by "deny"? It doesn't read the external hard drive? The commands are not accepted?
 


#6
the commands are not accepted, when i select the external hard dryve it just says that the hard drive is not valid
 


#7
OK, but you get to the command prompt? What is the exact error message?
