To cut a long story short, i followed the steps here : http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vist... so that i can install win 7 64 bit off my external HDD.
When i select to boot from the external drive however, i just get a blinking cursor for a second or two and then windows starts up as normal.
Anyone have any ideas what to do?
The DVD/USB tool does not detect my external drives so i am using the command prompt method instea.
ISO is the official win 7 ultimate 64 bit downloaded from the microsoft site.
I've got a theroy that something messed up with the drive (since i was able to boot from it before), but i'm not sure what. Anyone have a copy of bootrec.exe that they can upload so that i can troubleshoot the drive?
