The story A friend got a virus (rootkit) on their windows seven install and I offered to try and fix it (the virus was the google redirect tdss rootkit). After many attempts I finally got rid of it with Kapserky Rescue CD 10
Then when I go to boot into windows I get a error, specifically this
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
Ok So I go to google and search try some things get the drive mounted with diskpart turns out the Boot folder is gone.
I have tried tutorials on the internet but it seems I can't get teh boot file recreated;
I run... (using cmd on the windows 7 install usb drive)
bootrec /fixmbr bootrec /fixboot bootrec /rebuildbcd
At this point it say I have one windows install and asks if I want to add it; I click yes and it says The requested system device cannot be found
Why yes it can I am able to acess all the files on it and bootrec found it, so what gives
BTW some of the solutions say to use bcedit command which it seems the USB windows 7 install doesn't work.
Also I have tried using the system repair but it can't find any windows installs.
Please help :)
