Hi 

 

 Sorry you say you have a repair disk boot you cannot boot to it is that correct ???

   If you can boot to the repair disk let windows try to repair your system when it can't correct your issue click other options and choose Command Prompt hit enter.

  Next once inside Command prompt type 

 

bootrec /fixmbr      hit enter

bootrec /fixboot     hit enter

bootrec /rebuildbcd     hit enter 

 

 Restart your machine and see if your bootrecord is reparired.

 

 If you can't boot from your repair disk create a new one from a working Windows 7 machine and try to boot from that ..

 

           Keep Me informed of your progress

Hi
Are you seeing the X:\sources Before you type anything ? If so change the to D directory So type d: hit enter then type dir and hit enter
Look down the list to see if you can see Windows in the 😧 directory . If you can next type cls To clear the screen
Then type the bootrec commands to repair your windows installation .
