One of my friend in the office faced this on his laptop. He was stuck.
I found this helpful thread on the net that helped save his day. It took few minutes to build a boot dvd of win7 and follow the steps given by moti68. Since I am not on howtogeek.com, I could not personally thank him. but he deserves loads of thanks for saving day of the person.
People like this, always re-enforce in me, willingness to help others and share that other might need, some day. They bring up on you that there is need to give away for what others have been giving to you. That was the whole motive behind starting this blog. Needless to say – it gives immense satisfaction to see that — some of what you shared in past – continues to helps others.
That’s all for now.
