    Mame Doesn't work either... Not easy to just reinstall windows and think everything will be fine.

    One issue i`ve noticed after copying over my hyperspin and rocket launcher folders is that anything set up with PClauncher doesn't work anymore. I just get an error saying the game cant be found in the defined rom folder. Even though the games never were in the rom folder thats why i use pclaunher to choose what exe to execute.. Can anybody shed any light on this. All my hard drives are as was regarding drive letters ect..

    Gizmo thanks for taking the time to write all that up. Unfortunatley I bit the bullet last night and reinstalled a genuine copy of windows 7 64bit. Took me 16 hours to transfer my hyperspin and rocket launcher folders back from my nas drive. Hopefully your post will be helpful for other people that stumble across this thread. It's so demoralizing when windows won't boot, even worse when there's nothing wrong with the hard drive in another pc.. Thanks again..

    It's a 250gb samsung ssd only about 6 months old. Never been full either always kept it max 3/4 full. I'm hoping it's an easy fix if any body got any ideas I'll post some vids up tomorrow to show what it's doing...

    I've never altered any settings in the bios but I'll check.. It's definitely set to boot from the c drive though I know that ..

    Tried self repair comes back with no operating system found. But all folders intact
  14. Gutted Lost my whole collection

    Hi. Yes the file and folder structure is intact. I've pulled both the hyperspin and rocket launcher folders to my nas drive. I'd still love to get this original drive up and running if possible. I have never duel booted on this pc or attempted anything similar. Wouldn't know where to start with that.. Could you possibly take me through getting it to boot again. I have tried all the various commands using diskpart from the command line when booting from the windows CD. Fix/mbr and doing the bcd stuff nothing works.. I believe the drive to be intact just the booting part is not working correctly.. Any help much appreciated..

    Agreed I just find windows 10 so invasive but I'm sure it's a lot more configurable than I give it credit for. Not really looked hard into the settings. I got one last attempt using easeus where you can rewrite the boot partition if the drive works in a separate pc. I'll try that first after backing up all my stuff first... Genuine Windows this time though.. What virus scan do you use?
