4540s Notebook windows boot manager problem

Q: 4540s Notebook windows boot manager problem

Hi,last time I tried to start up, my NB 4540s results a start screen with:Windows Boot Manager problem 0xc000000e It says to use the recovery disk, and this is what I did, but each time I try to restart the screen is the same.I tried with ESC, F8, F11, and so on, but nothing solved.I tried to keep pressed ON button withouth battery to descharge laptop, but all is the same. I have seen the recovery disk with windows 8, but this NB has windows 7. Maybe this could be a problem when recovering ? Anyway the disk runs, but nothing different each start, the same windows boot manager windows appears.I can reinstall the system from scratch withouth problems, but how can install from cd ? Thanks

A: 4540s Notebook windows boot manager problem

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.

Hi, downloaded windows 10 for PC last night to upgrade from Windows 7 Pro.  I was required to uninstall HP ProtectTools Security Manager, after further prompting to uninstall dependent applications such as Divice Access manager, face recognition, file sanitiser, privacy manager, Theft recovery and Drive encryption  (fingerprint reconition no longer functions).  Can I reinstall?  If so how, and will there be any conflicts?

I have a Probook 4540s, 3 years old. When I try to move it, the screen becomes black. After that the HDD light becomes yellow instead of white, the fan becomes louder and windows cannot start. Also, after I have read few topics on this forum, I counted the number LED light on caps lock flashes and it flashed 5 times. I've read this is a system board error? I don't know what is considered by system board? After 15-20 minutes the things are normal until I try to move it again....

Hi,

When I tried installing Windows 7 on another hard drive, the boot manager option didn't come up. I just had to select which hard drive I wanted to boot from using f8 when the bios loads up. Is there any way to fix that?

A:Windows Boot Manager problem?

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?

--------------------------------------

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

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)?

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.

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.

Other things I've done already:I only have one stick of memory in for right now

What PSU (and wattage rating) do you have?

When you say new machine, do you mean new to you, or right out of the store?

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.

2. Choose your language settings and click " Next "

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.

2. click option for Windows system restore. Don't click option for recovery of factory settings.
3. click next at the dialog prompt for keyboard
4. click option for "Command Prompt" to run these commands: (doesn't have to be capitalized)
BOOTREC /FIXMBR and press ENTER

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!

Hi all

Short version is that I bought a new Samsung laptop with pre-installed Windows 8. Didn't like W8 for many reasons so tried to install windows 7 according to guided installation instructions from a techie site google took me to. 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]

If this string of events actually did start to reformat the drive, it might still be recoverable.  I would boot the computer to an independent OS IE: Linux Live on a CD or DVD and then look at the drive.  Then use that to copy your data to another drive.  Once the data is saved, then do whatever you want with this corrupted drive.  Do not try to continue with any other operations until the data is saved elsewhere.Since this PC came with Vista, once the data is saved, you could try the HP REcovery Manager to restore the original OS.

I am using my HP ProBook for past 3 years. When i tried to access my laptop i'm getting this error message- "bootDevice not found(3F0)".But i have a pre installed OS on my harddrive. I read few solutions on the internet but it didn't help. When i tried to access my BIOS , it was asking for a password (Which i dont remember setting up one). Now , i dont know the BIOS password and i cant access my laptop. There are a lot of important stuffs in it. So i can't simply get a new harddrive. Please help! Thank you.

What remains ... the computer still will bluescreen afterwards (maybe this also can be resolved by playing around with the Energy Options. !Also keep in mind that applications/games still will show that you can select the HD 4000 only but it does switch to the discrete gpu (7650M HD).

The problem that I have is with a Presario 2188cl. AMD 2500 proc, 768 ram,40 gig seagate. I cannot boot from drive. I can boot from winxp disc, format, then start install. The setup files write to the disk, but when the computer reboots to start the install, it will sometimes sit at a blank screen with a curser. Other times it will print characters. They change with different setups:I the drive was formatted in NTFS= "SlSl", in FAT32= "PU7" although the 7 is really more of a 90 degree right angle. If I have the winxp disk in and let it go past the "press any key..." so that it boots from the drive it prints "KAKA" with two dots above the "A"s.

When I boot an ERD Commander disc, I can see all the setup files on the disk.
I even hooked the drive up to my desktop, installed xp, it ran great. But when I hook it back up to the laptop, same thing.

i've bought a second hand laptop/notebook with a strange configuration: the boot files and sector were in the C: drive and the rest of the windows installation on the D: drive (both are partitions)

one day i was a bit tired and came up with the idea of merging the two partitions into one, making the C partition a folder of the D partition (bad ideia... im really )
now it wont boot :'''( and the cd/dvd on that computer is damaged so i cant re-install XP Pro easily :''''(

i've already booted from USB with a 98 boot disks but it couldn't run the xp setup.

i also tryed the bart pe usb install but i alswyas get a blue screen later in the windows boot
anyone has an ideia how i could get this to work again?

if i could make USB setup disk, where the usb would boot and install the XP in my HD it would be great.

Hi all,

I followed some instructions to remove the Windows 8 Dual Boot by just deleting the Windows 8 Partition and that there was no need to edit the boot menu as everything will be done automatically after restart.

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....

Thanks in advance !

Warmest Regards,

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

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:
Windows 7
Windows Setup

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.

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:
bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast

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!

Got a notebook with Windows 7 on it and all of a sudden it's started not booting up, I've tried running the operating system recovery, memory diagnostix and the various tools presented to me to try and fix the issue with no luck. It just sits at the black screen with the yellow bar running across the bottom and never boots up. Also tried safe mode but it just stops after loading disk.sys.

Only way I can get on is if I reinstall Windows, first format all the drives then reinstall it - it works fine (boots up) but as soon as I shut down I can't get back on and I'm back to square one.

Also tried an older operating system with no luck (it was running 7 for months before this issue).

I was having issues with Windows crashing when waking up from sleep. Everything seemed to point to driver issues, and while chasing that down I deleted several Acronis drivers from the registry. Acronis had been uninstalled, but left some artifacts behind.When I rebooted I got an Boot Manager error - basically not found.

I ran Windows startup repair 2-3 times without effect.

Windows recovery shows 2 recent backups are present, but neither is visible from the Restore window.

Tried to repair the MBR from Partition Wizard (8.1) and although it was successful Windows still doesn't boot. PW shows the partition is present and active but not as boot.

Happy Monday . Any ideas?

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.

You will get and keep a perfect install for exactly as long as you stick with the tools and methods in that tutorial, as proven by over a million consumers who have used it without a single complaint.

Hi there, first time posting. I have a problem on my system that on startup it opens windows boot manager and I have to choose to open windows vista. The only other option is to do a diagnostic scan, (which I have tried selecting with no results.) From What I have read, I understand this page would show up if I had multiple operating systems, but I don't. It didn't do this before. Can anybody help with what may be the issue?
Thanks in advance.

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:Why do I have to select the Windows Boot Manager in the BIOS to boot?

When you reinstalled Windows you should have disconnected the other drives and leave only your SSD connected as now you have your boot files on the other hard drive so either reinstall Windows disconnecting the other hard drives and reconnect when you're done or follow the suggestions in this thread

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?

My mobo is a Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 btw.

Thanks in advance

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.

I'll be honest and say that overall, I'm not a fan of Windows 8.. it's so different from all of the previous OS's, which I was fairly adept at navigating through in order to troubleshoot when I needed to.. but I am clueless as to what to do with this problem, and have spent hours googling possible solutions, bu...

A:Help! error 'windows boot manager, boot failed!

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). Good luck.

Hello, I had an issue with my Windows 8 where I was forced to reinstall it. I have completely wiped my SSD and reinstalled Windows 8 on it. However, now it will not let me pick my boot order. It is forcing me to use Windows Boot Manager as my Boot Option 1. If I use anything else, I just get a black screen with a blinking line cursor.

It didn't use to do this before I had to reinstall. I'm not sure how to fix this. It also will not let me choose F11 boot options, it always is forcing me to use Windows Boot Manager.

How do I make it so I can boot from whichever boot order I want, instead of using Boot Manager?

Have a new computer with freshly installed W7 on a SSD drive. The computer boots properly unless external HD are connected. If I have external HDs connected (USB 3) it fails to find windows.

Why is WBM unable to find the installation on the SSD? Can I manually change the settings in WBM to select the SSD?

So then I tried three times to download Windows 10( two by installing it directly to the laptop and once by downloading it to an 8gb usb stick). But every time I install it it says it will restart then it restarts but gets stuck on the HP logo. I have tried Hard reset, checking for faulty components but the only way to fix this is to restore it back to Windows 8.1. Is there any fix which will allow me to finally get windows 10 working or will I have to stick with Windows 8.1?Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Lately this hand-me-down Vaio notebook I received would just randomly give me bluescreens while I was doing things.I wanted to figure out what the error was specifically, but the system would just reboot itself within a second of blue screening before I could read it, and it'd be fine for a while after it rebooted. Today I got a bluescreen and it tried to reboot itself, but when it got to the Windows XP loading screen it bluescreened again and reset itself. I tried booting into safe mode, but before it can load the OS the screen will either go black or blue screen and reset.

Is there anything I can do for it, or will I have to reinstall XP? Also, if I do end up having to reinstall will I lose data?

I hope the windows 7 installation is still there; just not working as some editing is done in the boot manager.

If it is true, first run Startup Repair for a few times with restarts after every single run . Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times . It will add the bootloader of the installed windows 7 .

Then, type msconfig in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link , you will get the system configuration window. The second tab is boot. Look at there for the extra startup entries , select those and delete those . You you have any confusion about which are to be deleted, post a screenshot of that window here .

Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums .

Then, it is to delete the leftovers of the previous installations, if any, in the C drive .

Windows.old Folder - Delete .

Finally, it is secured to run Startup Repair one more time.

A:Boot Manager Problem

if your boot manager is corrupt theres little hope of getting your old OS back up and running , im assuming you'll have all the files needed to reformat on a separate partition on your hard drive , these are usually accessable by pressing (for example) F9 upon bootup , giving you your repair/reformat options

Im thinking the only way out of this is a repair so goto the Asus website lookup your laptop and select "support" and somewhere there it will tell you what keypress to select on bootup and how to go about repairing your operating system , a repair install will keep your files folders etc so is the way forward


edit....ive just had a poke around the net and it seems F9 is the key that will let you acess the repair reformat options , so as soon as you start booting your laptop keep pressing F9 about once a second till yuo are presented with your format options

A:Windows doesn't boot after boot manager

First of all, welcome to BC !
 
I would say your best bet at this point would be to use your Vista disc to do a full reinstall of Vista, this should get your computer running again even if it only has Vista on it. Vista at least has the advantage of being still supported.
 
The problem here is that a full re-install will wipe - format - your hard drive so the question becomes 'have you got any data on this computer that you don't have backed to external media ?'.  If you do have data that you haven't got backed up, probably the simplest way to do this is to create a self-booting Puppy Linux disc and use that to boot your computer and recover your data to some sort of external media - DVDs, memory stick, external hard drive, whatever. You will of course have to use a different computer to create the Puppy disc. You can get the necessary files and information on how to use it from here -
 
http://puppylinux.org/main/Overview%20and%20Getting%20Started.htm
 
Between that and your Vista disc you should be able to salvage your data and get your computer running again.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It's possible your hard drive is corrupted as a result of the power loss so you might want to run a check on it as this tutorial explains.

Disk Check

Are you saying the boot sequence has changed? If so, you'll need to go into the BIOS to see what is going on - if you're unsure what to look for just load the default settings - your computer manual should show you how to access the BIOS settings.
