System Restore issues Recovery from recovery disk set disk#1 not recognized as a boot disk
Product: pavilion HPE h8-1360t
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
I recently restored my system to restore point set prior to a failed upgrade to W10 . The restore was "successful" but then...
When I boot up, I get normal login but when I enter my password system tells me it is setting up my desktop?? Then it stalls in never never land. When I boot in safe mode I get my normal desktop but not much works including networking. Most anything I try yields an explorer error message that the file or resource cannot be found, etc. Curiously I can open any PDF file with Acrobat and I can even browse and load other PDF files on the hard disk from within acrobat. I ran boot log and in fact most of the the drivers other than sysroot... did not load.
I tried all of the repair options provided by HP and microsoft without success. So I decided to restore using a set of disks I dutifully prepared when I recently moved my system. Unfortunately the restore from disk option cannot find the boot file on disk #1. When I put the disk in another machine I see a normal set of foders including one named "Boot"??
I REALLY want to get my system back to what I had when I exeuted the restore to restore point!
