I have a hard drive from a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7 which seems to have a corrupted boot disk that I'm trying to repair. The laptop won't boot (freezes on black screen after Windows logo), and isn't running the built-in repair utility (same issue; freezes on boot).
I tried booting from a repair disc and running the startup repair utility, but after four days the repair was only at 5% complete, so I decided to look for another solution. I removed the HDD and attached it to an enclosure. When I connected to it through my Windows 7 laptop, I could see the drive listed, but explorer froze when trying to access the drive. Next I connected to my MacBook and everything seems to be working (I can see the drive contents and recover the files).
I'm wondering if there is any way to perform a Windows 7 startup repair on the drive from my MacBook Pro. Some Googling didn't turn up any obvious utilities that might help, and obviously if this is not possible I can just back up the data and reformat, but if there is an easy fix that would save me some time I would love to check it out.
Thanks in advance!
