Unable to Boot in Windows 7, Problem in Boot Manager.

Q: Unable to Boot in Windows 7, Problem in Boot Manager.

Hi,

In my hard-disk i have total 4 partition ©:windows, (D):data, (E):HP Recovery Manager and (F):Windows 7. Therefore Initial Stage where Windows Boot Manager loads i use to get two option whether want to load from windows 7 or Windows vista.

But some few days back my pc were infected with trojon, etc. Then i used HP Recovery Manager to restore my PC to default factory settings. After re-installing Windows Vista from the Recovery manager, I reconize that i am unable to boot to my Windows 7. I think Boot Manager has been disturbed. If i place Windows 7 DVD then windows files load and then hangs for few mins and then message displays that
"Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.
If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.
Status: 0xc00000e9
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred."

I dint Attach any removable storage to my pc.

I have tried EasyBCD 2.1, but installation stops in middle and program exits without installing it.

Therefore how to boot from Windows 7 and fix the Boot Manager, where i can load in both the windows version.

So can anyone help with it as soon as possible, because need to update many office files.

Thanks in advance,

Bye

Preferred Solution: Unable to Boot in Windows 7, Problem in Boot Manager.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi all,

following trouble:

i have a an Acer Aspire 5735z which had Win Xp SP2 installed on it. the Wi-fi wasnt working on it .

this model was downgraded from Vista to XP so i thought perhaps there are driver problems. After installing other drivers which didnt work i thought of installing windows 7 and see if it worked. Unfortunately the issue was with this Wifi that once you input your password incorrect it connects to the wifi network but as *limited or no connectivity*

once i've understood that i've tried the same thing in XP and it worked great. Now i wanted to remove Win 7 and i had followed this guide from MS

How to uninstall Windows 7

Forgot to say that XP was on C and Win 7 on D

I formatted the partition on D, Win 7 is gone now , but the boot Manager is still present. I've opened up the boot section on XP through ms config and i dont see any bootpaths for the bootloader. i've run the fixmbr from the recovery console hoping it would kick the boot manager out but this did not help.

Could you please assist me in removing the Dual Boot manager so i can start my xp version without choosing it?

thank you

Hi Droiyan3
Have you tried editing the boot.ini file from advanced system settings ?
Right click My Computer>Properties>Advanced System Settings >Boot.ini (I've forgotten the exact file name ) but it allows the boot config to open in an editable text file which you can select>Click Save when done

Hope this helps

Sorry If this thread is on the wrong forum but please can you help.

When ever I turn on my computer it comes up with this:

Windows Boot Manager
A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.
If you have a Windows installation disc, insert the disc and restart your computer. Click "Repair your computer," and then choose a recovery tool.
Otherwise, to start windows so you can investigate further, press the ENTER key to display the boot menu, press F8 for Advanced Boot Options, and select last known good. If you understand why the digital signature cannot be verified and want to start Windows without this file, temporarily disable driver signature enforcement.

status: 0xc0000428

Info: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.

I have tried to use my install disc but when i try and boot from that is says:

Press any key to boot from cd/dvd...

So I press a key and it goes straight back to the Boot manager message.
I have also tryed to get into the advanced boot options by pressing F8 but is comes up with the different drives i want to boot from. I dont really want to disable the driver enforcement because f the safety and i can't anyway. Is there anything that can help?

Well, something is obviously 'surviving' the reformatting that you did using WipeDrive 5.0.

Using Windows Explorer (Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Windows Explorer), have a look in the root directory in your C: drive.

Do you see multiple 'WINDOWS' directories there [each will have a unique name, starting with 'WINDOWS']?

If yes, then this is the source of the problem that you are having.

I don't think that (due to permissions problems) you can use Windows to delete the 'extra' 'WINDOWS' directories. I have, several times, successfully removed 'extra' WINDOWS directories (folders) from my customers' computers (I am an OEM of custom-built computer systems), by usi... Read more

A:Problem with---Windows boot manager

Hi inversteve and Welcome to TSF,

If you're unable to boot into Safemode you will indeed need the installation DVD's to continue. Please get your hands on an installation DVD, if you have a CD key and no discs; Contact Microsoft to order new ones. Or buy a genuine key/box.

Then insert the CD/DVD.
When "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD ..." appears > Press a key.
Instead of "Install Windows", choose "Repair Windows".
Choose to automatically repair Windows.

After this is done, see if you can boot into Windows.
If you still can't, you should make a proper backup by taking out the HDD from your laptop and put it in another PC and backup your files. Then perform a clean install of Windows.

First of all is the 7 install on an ide drive while the other OS? XP? Vista? is on the first likely sata drive? To put it mildly ide overruled sata!

When installing 7 the boot files and mbr information was placed on the second drive not the first where ? is running now since you left that out. However you can easily see XP or Vista even another 7 install added into the second drive's 7 boot options with a free tool known as EasyBCD or the BCD editing already included in Vista and now 7 as well.

Recently i changed the boot logo/screen on my computer to a custom one. When i got tired of it and wanted to change it back, i googled how i could restore it. In a tech forum someone said running the CMD as admin and typing "bcdedit %WinDir% /l en-US" would restore it back to its original boot logo. I tried it and then restarted my computer as instructed. As soon as it starts to boot up i get a message from the "Windows Boot Manager" telling me that there is a file that cannot be recognized: "windows/system32/winload.exe" My drivers for my keyboard are out of date apparently as i cant press "enter" to continue. It told me i could alternatively insert my windows 7 disc and restart. I inserted that disc and restarted and the same screen comes up. Help?

One of my Seagate 500 GB drives has gone haywire and I decided I better replace it before it crashes all together. So I got a WD 1T and used Minitool Partition Magic to transfer the WIN 7 OS to the new drive. I can see both drives in BIOS and Explorer but I cannot get the system to boot on the new drive by itself. So somehow Window Boot Manager is defaulting to the old drive. So my question is how do I get Boot Manager to boot off the new drive?

The FAT32 partition on the old drive says that it's active and boot and on the new drive it only says Active. The main partitions are NTFS.

I also made the new drive MBR instead of GPT.

Any input appreciated.

Did you copy everything to the new drive, including the "system reserved" partition from the old drive? The "system reserved" partition is marked "active" and is where Boot Manager lives. If you're planning on replacing the old drive then you must be sure you've copied everything you need to from the old drive to the new, and not just the Windows C-partition.

So, do you have a "system reserved" partition on the old drive? Or did you never have it because of your OS upgrade path over the years, and your Win7 C-partition on that drive truly was marked as "active" (indicating Boot Manager lived in the same partition as Windows itself)?

I used to have a W7 system in IDE, MBR and since I had to reinstall everything from sratch, I decided to set my drives to AHCI, UEFI/GPT. After install, I checked the BIOS settings and saw that in my Boot Options I had the "Windows Boot Manager" set as #1, my SSD set as #2 and DVD drive as #3.
 
When I change the boot priority and set my SSD as #1, my computer won't boot and asks for a bootable device although the system is install on my SSD. I don't have a multiboot system, there's only W7 present so why do I have a "Windows Boot Manager" in my BIOS? I thought it was only for multi boot systems so I don't get why it's showing up here.
 
When I go to msconfig, startup, there's only one system displayed (W7).
 
Since I'm new to AHCI/GPT, I don't know what's normal and what's not. If it's not normal, how come I got this Windows Boot Manager in my BIOS? Maybe the old MBR wasn't erased even though I ran a secure Erase on my SSD?

this is what I did, since I have no CD-ROM, to install Win7 I created a partion X: NTFS and set it as the ACTIVE ONE, the put there the Windows 7 installation files, and opened prompt command to type bootsect.exe /n60 X: , next I restarted my computer, and automatically it booted into the Windows 7 setup, I installed Windows 7 on the partition C: and formatted the partition C:, everything installed and after the installation finished, a multiple choice menu appears that reads:

I believe my error was not to set partition C: back as the active one, during the installation process where it asks you in which partition to install, I just formatted C: but forgot to set it as the ACTIVE ONE

Hallo,

After creating a UEFI bootable USB thumb drive with Rufus (using Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO x64), for a Dell Optiplex 3010 (configured as UEFI only, no CSM, latest firmware version, Windows 8 installed), I didn't see a USB boot option, so I tried to add one manually. Unfortunately I erased the existing boot option (boot manager) by mistake. Although there were two boot options for PXE booting, the machine will not start anymore, even when there is an active WDS server on the network.

I also see Led's 2 and 3 lighting up, meaning according to the manual 'hardware ok but bios possibly damaged/corrupt'.

I understand I cannot start the machine from a bios boot disk because of GPT partitioning, and the UEFI USB boot disk I made might be corrupt (as it didn't show up as a boot option), however I don't understand why it won't boot from the PXE network card, as these boot options are still there.

Any suggestions on how to solve this?

Thanks for any useful tips,
Bavo

A:Deleted Uefi boot option (Windows Boot Manager) by mistake

The Windows Boot Manager is held in the Bios and restores itself if you boot to a UEFI capable device. Could you please explain exactly what you did to "Add" the USB boot option?

I have the PXE boot options disabled in my bios since I do not have a network boot option.

Hi, I really need some help here.

My system has two drives:
1) SSD (C: drive) where my win7 OS boots from (call this normal_win7)
2) HDD (D: drive) where I keep my data

I created a D:\virtual_win7.vhd file and installed win7 on it (for testing purposes) following these instructions:

Virtual Hard Drive VHD File - Create and Start with at Boot

When I boot, I get no boot menu asking me to choose either between normal_win7 or virtual_win7 install. By default, it boots into virtual_win7. To boot into normal_win7, I need to press F11 at reboot to enter into Boot Menu and select it. I thought I would be presented with a boot menu at reboot each time? Those instructions I followed in the link told me the boot manager would be present. So I got a feeling something went wrong somewhere.

These are some things I observed:

1. I installed EasyBCD within normal_win7 and it only has one entry listed in the bootloader:


HTML Code:
Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
2. Within System > Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Startup and Recovery, there is also only one entry.

3. In Disk Management (within normal_win7), the vhd does not appear.

Questions:

What do I need to do to get the boot menu manager going when I reboot my system to allow OS selection?

Why doesn't the vhd appear in Disk Management within normal_win7? Is it because it is being dynamically mounted each time it is booted into? I thought th... Read more

Hello,

I have been using windows xp for a long time. I have two actual HD, one partitioned into 4, and another without any partition, giving me a total of 5. I was using two instance of windows xp installed in drive C and another in drive E (both are actually located in just one HD, but the other HD somehow got in between the two)

I finally decided to change the windows xp in drive C into windows 7. After installation, my previous option of choosing between which windows xp to use no longer appears and it goes straight to my new windows 7. I tried these four command :

bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows XP"
bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=E:

So now an option appears before loading any windows but whenever i try to go to windows xp, it cant. It seems like i need to do more bcdedit.

Please help. Thanks!

And then I click enter and it starts up again and takes me to the exact same page. I don't have the original disc I got, so I bought a new one and it doesn't work on the computer for whatever reason.

This started a few months ago when I was trying to do a factory reset, when I tried to turn it on it just started showing me this page. Beforehand the computer was still acting weird, like not letting me get onto google ( saying it couldn't connect but only when I went to the google website ) and just being very slow and glitchy.

The installation stopped after 30 minutes, referring to a driver issue I believe, and I had to revert to loading up using Windows 8 again to get out of the dos error screen.

Now the system tells me how I get (inconsistent) blue screens although I don't physically see a blue screen, and every day I boot up, it reverts to the 'Windows Boot Manager' screen, telling me a recent hardware or software change has resulted in something missing, damaged, etc.

Additional message when in the Boot Manager reads:

File: \$Windows-BT\Windows\System32\winload.efi
Status: 0xc0000428
Info: the digital signature for this file could not be verified.

Although Im not an expert, it seems to me that the file path mentioned above relates to the part installation of windows 7 - if so, how can I remove the part installation, clean the system up, and reluctantly return to W8?

[btw - unable to get help from Windows or Samsung so far]

Cheers

Okay so a few days ago i turned on my laptop and it goes straight to Boot Manager saying this:

A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that may be malicious software from an unknown source.

If you have a windows installation disc, insert the disc and restart your computer. Click "Repair your computer," and then choose a recovery tool.

Otherwise, to start windows so you can investigate further, press ENTER key to display the boot menu, press F8 for Advanced Boot Options, and select Last Known Good. If you understand why the digital signature cannot be verified and want to start windows without this file, temporarily disable driver signature enforcement.

So i tried burning the Windows Vista 64-bit AND 32-bit Recovery discs because i wasn't sure which one i needed.

Hello,

Please help me. I am totally lost.
Vista's Windows Boot Manager Keeps pooping up at restart.
It asks to choose a os, which the only choice is vista.
This problem happened on a old install of vista, which i then did fresh install.
Vista is the only os on the drive&computer, and the problem's still there.

The really strange problem is that, this ONLY happens when i have a external usb hdd connected to the computer. If the usb hdd is disconnected, all is well.

Moreover, it doesn't matter which usb hdd, i have two different ones. When one or both is connected, the boot manager shows up. I reformatted the two hdd twice, with both fat32 and NFTS, but the problem happens again, even when there's no data on the disks.
I took a look at all the solutions from this forum and google, but no solution. The boot manager keep coming up. I am really really lost, please help. Thank you!

So, I've been having a lot of trouble installing windows 7 64 bit on my new machine. Each time, I've formatted the hard drive and started the installation over.

I've had two similar problems, although they happened at slightly different times. The first is after the installation has completed, it tries to boot up and I get the Windows Boot Manager screen, which informs me that it failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt. I've had several different files come up on this error (the last attempt has given me q12300.sys, cng.sys, ntsf.sys, ntoskrnl.exe and HAL.dll as I keep trying to get it to boot).

This has also happened after the OS has installed (I've only gotten to this point twice). After it booted to the desktop, I shut down the computer. Once I booted it back up, I got the same startup errors I described above. I tried the automatic startup repair (didn't ever work) and then used bootrec from the command prompt to rebuild/fix it, but it didn't seem to work.

If everything is brand new, I'd be looking at running a test on the HDD, (down load from the manufacturers site, much more complete then chkdsk) or trying a substitute HDD; substituting a different PSU with as called for or better specs; removing, inspecting and reinstalling the CPU.

If none of that made any significant change to the symptoms, I'd feel secure asking for an RMA for the mobo.

Hello,

I have dual boot in my laptop with Ubuntnu 14.04 LTS and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Today after working on Ubuntu I restarted and switched to Windows and as soon as it logged in I noticed the battery was 0%. I thought maybe it was some kind of glitch or something (silly me!) so I just pulled the power supply and the laptop abruptly turned off. My laptop battery is completely dead now...won't charge at all and after that incident when I tried to log back into Windows it showed this error:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

I don't have an installation disc, I tried pressing F8 and none of the options there helped. Ubuntu still works totally fine though. So I'm guessing it is not some hard drive crash and my data are fine in Windows but I just can't boot into it! Please Help!!

After a failed windows update, I am not able to boot my laptop.
Finally, after being passed from one agent to another during some hours today, I was eventually forwarded to a 14th person at Dell, who was the right kind person to help me with my problem. Hurah!
But we could not find a solution.
During the call, I had to delete the Windows Boot Manager that figured in the sequence, and which was not working. And then to add it again.
So far so good.
I added WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER after clicking on $boot (after choosing one of my partitions).
But it then showed up as WINDOWS BOOT MANAG
I tried again Windows Boot Manager
which, again, came up as Windows Boot Manag
Two letters missing... So this is not working, and computer still doesn't boot into OS.
Any idea how to add Windows Boot Manager correctly?
by the way, I found this file bootsector.bak - is this of any use to restore my boot sector??
Would be great to get some help. I am on that issue full time since 3 days now, and can't even do my normal job.

My Dell Inspiron 660 is 2 months old. It came with Windows 8 preinstalled. My problem: I am trying to change the boot order so I can boot from CD ROM as a first option. I have tried using the "F" keys on boot, but it just ignores me and goes on to boot up. I have also tried the "Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware Settings" in "Change PC Settings" and got the same results. I spent some time on the phone with a Dell tech. After trying all the things I had already tried, he and his supervisor decided I must have a bad Motherboard. Does this sound right? Is there any way to repair this problem?

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, so I apologize if I'm not. But I have a HUGE problem. I have a Gateway laptop that's only about 5 months old. It has Windows 8 on it, and when I started it up this morning, I saw the Gateway logo, and then I kept getting an error message that said 'windows boot manager, boot failed, press ok to continue', which I did, and then got an error message saying 'no bootable device found, press any key'. I pressed ok, and then it took me to the boot option menu, which only gave me one option that said 'windows boot manager
(wcd wd3200bpvt-22jj5t0). When I press this option, it takes me back to the same boot manager error message.

I've tried hitting F12, and it just gives me the boot option menu like I described above. I get nothing pressing F8. If I press F2, I get the InsydeH20 Setup Utility. Under the security tab, it will only allow me to select the 'set supervisor and HDD passwords(there's currently no passwords listed for these). Below it has the option to erase all secure boot setting, select an UEF1 file and restore secure boot to factory default, but it doesn't allow me to go down to any of these options.

Sure sounds like your hard drive may be failing or your boot sector is corrupted. However, since your laptop is only 5 months old, I assume it is still under warranty. With that said, I would recommend that you work this issue through Lenovo support so they can identify the source, authorize a factory service call (if covered), and/or authorize the shipment of any replacement parts (if required).

Since I was having some issues with my system, I just reinstalled W7 from scratched on my SSD. With this new install I decided to go the AHCI, UEFI, GPT route instead of MBR and IDE like on my previous install.

Everything installed smoothly. I took a look at my BIOS setting and I can see in my Boot options that my #1 boot option is set to "Windows Boot Manager". My SSD is #2 and my DVD drive is #3. I only have one system installed (W7) so I'm not dual booting.

When I change the boot order and set my SSD as #1, my computer won't boot and tells to select a drive with a bootable system. "Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press any key"

Is this normal behavior?? If not, how do I fix this?
Thanks

A:Boot manager corrupted - Windows fails to boot

Are you saying that after editing the Registry Win7 will not start? This can be fatal if you didn't save a System Restore point before messing with the registry.

Try a System Restore from System Recovery Options as far back as necessary.

If that fails confirm that Win7 or it's System Reserved partition (preferred if you have it) is Partition Marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If that doesn't help then everything that can possibly be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot leading up to if necessary rescuiing any files before running Recovery or doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Hi,

I installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode to an SDD and I figured it would be easy to take my old drive which also had Windows 7 installed, hook it up to a SATA port, and copy over the files that I wanted.

In my BIOS interface I can select the SSD drive to boot from, or "Windows Boot Manager". Only selecting the later boots allows me to boot from the SSD, and only if the old drive is not hooked up. When I hook up my old drive (which had Windows 7 installed WITHOUT UEFI), selecting "Windows Boot Manager" will cause my system to try (and fail) to boot from my old drive.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Why is Windows Boot Manager choosing to try and boot from my old drive? Windows Boot Manager I believe resides on the SSD since that was the only drive connected during my new Windows 7 install, so why the heck wouldn't it default to booting the Windows 7 installation on that drive?! I've tried moving the old drive to different SATA ports and to a secondary SATA controller but it makes no difference, Windows Boot Manager always insists on trying to boot from it.

If I hadn't used UEFI I could have just told the bios what drive to boot from. But thanks to this new and "improved" standard I can't exercise this simplest of controls. Any ideas?

It is likely that there is a problem with either the hard drive or the memory. If either is true it is not going to be possible to restore an operating system unless the bad component is replaced.  Can you get into the BIOS (F10) or diagnostics (F2) at bootup? You should run the hardware testing programs which are available at either place. Let us know what you find or if you have trouble getting there.

Now, when I tried to reboot my computer, the computer hangs at the screen where you are suppose to select to boot up Windows 7 or Windows 8.

As I had deleted Windows 8 Already, it should not prompt me to select to boot Windows 8 but rather directly boot into Windows 7.

How should I proceed from here ? I am currently installing Fedora Dual Boot on my laptop so hopefully I am able to do some salvaging from there....
