Fix Computer Won't Boot with A Windows bootable disk/CD

If the computer is running and you just can't boot it, you can fix this computer won't boot issue easily with a Windows bootable disk/cd. To solve this problem is quite easy. There are 5 things you can do to save your Windows back.

#1. Do a boot file recovery

When you start the computer, it always crashes with a black screen. There may be one of the following boot file lost. You can do a boot file recovery to get them back to normal.
* NTLDR is missing or corrupted
* Ntdetect.com is missing
* Ntoskrnl.exe is missing
* NTFS.SYS is missing
* BOOTMGR is missing or corrupted
* Hal.dll is missing

#2. Do a MBR recovery

MBR, the short name of Master Boot Recorder, locates the first sector of hard disk. The MBR is not placed in a partition, but located at a main boot record area in front of (with a lower LBA sector number than) the first partition. MBR issues can bring you the hard disk boot failure. When it happena, you will see "invalid partition table", "hard disk boot failure", etc. on your computer.

#3. Do a boot sector recovery

The partition boot sector is a small section of the hard disk partition that contains information about the operating system's file system (NTFS or FAT32), as well as a very small machine language program that is crucial in assisting the operating system as it loads. If you suspect that Windows XP won't boot because the partition boot sector has been corrupted, you can try to fix it.

#4. Do a registry recovery

Registry is a small database that stores configuration settings and options in Windows. It contains settings for low-level operating system component as well as the applications running on the platform: device drivers, kernel, services, user interface, SAM, and third party application all make use of the registry. If Registry is corrupted, it may cause Windows not booting up. You may encounter blue screen, blank screen, application booting error, registry configure error, etc. All these problems may be caused by Registry abnormity.

#5. Do a Windows restore

The problem of Windows booting failure can be caused by different reasons, like corrupted or missing Windows system file; corrupted DPT (Disk Partition Table); damaged MBR, and corrupted registry. If you backed up your Windows/MBR/DPT/Registry before, you can restore it easily by clicking the button below when they crashed.
