Blackscreen, no boot options, no windows logo.

    Blackscreen, no boot options, no windows logo.

    I recently was cleaning my pc (custom build, no disc drive, using usb to boot to recovery) of malware, after I restarted there was no windows loading screen, just black screen.
    I tried bootrec fixmbr fixboot and nothing. When i used scanos or rebuildbcd I get 0 windows installations.
    Don't have any chance to boot to safe mode.
    Used these guides to try and fix it with no success. I did managed to get the windows installation to show in scanos etc.

    I have 3 hdds, one with 3 partitions (500gb windows, media, games) and two more just for music (500gb and 320gb)
    One thing I noticed, the letters of the partitions changed when using diskpart list vol, for example my primary hdd (windows part) was letter C in windows and now it's letter D, which was the media partition. I don't know if this has anything to do with anything.

    I don't want to fresh install.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello there geopop3,unplug all other peripherals and non-boot disks,make sure your primary boot disk is plugged in,in the appropriate SATA port,usually port 0 (zero),boot into BIOS making sure your HDD is recognized and set to boot from it.Tell us how it goes...
