Well I am completely guilty. A. I did not create any images or restore points. And I decided to try to repair from a BSD by using HP's systems restore. At one percent I stopped what I think was a format and I get the bootmgr missing failure.
I am beyond that now and the computer is telling me File: boot/bcd
or instert full version windows 7 / 64 install disk and choose repair.
The repair functions cannot revert to a saved version. The repair cannot be made automatically ,the repair tool has no choice in the Dialoge box . there is no O/S recognized.
I go to a DOS prompt to read files on the hard drive and I dont get a file structure that shows my pictures // or my music etc... Just system files. but at least some files...
Any ideas ? Can I back up anything before I do a Fresh wipe systems install.
