I have partitioned my drive to have the option to boot from Windows 7 or 8.
Recently when I power up my laptop it goes through an endless power on, initial boot sequence, black screen with a cursor and repeats the sequence.
Initial Trouble Shooting
- I'm able to get into the BIOS
- I've removed and reinserted the battery
- I've attempted different sequences with the memory sticks and slots (12, 1X, X2, 2X, X1, 21)
- I've booted off a USB drive with Ubuntu on it and I'm able to see my main hard drive and files.
I'm assuming I'll need to reinstall Windows but I wanted to verify this first.
Based on this is there any other troubleshooting I should be doing?
