    Pro X64 not booting


    Hello, I keep getting this error

    Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. Were just collecting some error info and then well restart for you.

    It will then restart and start automatic repair then after a few seconds screen goes black and i have a white cursor with movement and that is all, no repairing going on.

    I am unable to boot into safe mode tried F8 and shift + F8.

    I can get into bios and boot menu but I dont see anything there to help me.

    I do not have Win 8 dvd due to downloading upgrade from Win 7 nor a dvd.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can go back to win7 from the windows.old folder.

    I know.

    You restore from OUTSIDE of windows using a boot disc.

    Right at the begining of that link.

    The whole process takes me about 3 minutes at most.


    You never know - reinstall might also work for you - worth a go.

    I understand now, use an old boot disc. Thank you

    It needs to be something you can see from .

    It is possible form a command prompt - but much easier if you can see what you are doing.

    The problem with attempting to reinstall - aside from from the result might not be any better - is that you will lose your current windows.old. You won't be able to go back then.
