  • I figured out how to get to d with the command prompt.  Do I have to reinstall 7?  I really don't want to do that!  How might I just restore?

  • you have to insert the win7 disk and then restart, the computer should ask you: "press any key to boot from CD" .

  • I'm sorry to be so slow about this, but are you telling me to reinstall Windows 7?  Is that what boot from CD is?  I am trying to avoid doing that.  Don't want to have to reinstall programs and printer....thank you.

  • All bad news.....got to D drive.  Got to setup.exe on the disk.  Did not give restore option.  Copied temp files.  Then got a notice that Windows didn't recognize the disks and couldn't do any more.  This seems serious.
