  • Sounds like it is still trying to boot from the hard drive, which you deleted important files from.

    Do you have the installation disc or a usb? You need to set your BIOS to boot from that first, install Windows fresh on the hard drive. Then it should boot fine.

  • Hi ,

    Based on your description, your system components could be missing or corrupted. we could try to perform an in-place upgrade repair to refresh the machine. Refreshing the machine won`t affect the personal files. Make a Windows 7 installation media and boot from it, choose "upgrade" install.

    Best regards
