My computer won't allow me to boot into Windows 7 after I installed BackTrack 5 (A Linux Distro). I don't believe this is a boot sector problem because, as you will see in the video, the Windows bootloader is working, but Windows won't load. It freezes at AtiPcie64.sys when it loads. I removed AtiPcie64.sys from the drivers folder then there was a problem with ClassPNP.sys. I just copied and pasted the driver in hopes that the Windows default VGA driver would kick in. *I know now have AtiPcie64.sys back in drivers folder.
I need help diagnosing and fixing this problem. I'd rather not format any partitions, if able.
Extra Info: When I use diskpart (from the Installation USB) I get invalid dynamic disk. However, the partition managers show that my disk is a Basic disk.
Windows attempts to boot into Safe Mode.
Last known config and restore point don't work.
I'm on a dual boot with Kali Linux, a Debian based Linux, installed.
Automatic Repair doesn't detect Windows, even when Windows bootloader is enabled and Grub disabled.
Windows will not boot now that I have installed Linux. It starts to boot, then the computer resets before getting very far.
I decided I want Linux (I love it, even though I'm having this problem) so I installed BackTrack 5. When I installed I couldn't get the install side-by-side option so I just partitioned some memory from the HDD to add unallocated space. In the installer I used the unallocated space for the BT5 Installation. I was running BT5 and went to boot Windows and I couldn't.
I wasn't worried. I popped in the Win7 Installation Live USB I had made, and then I started to worry because the automatic repair wouldn't work and neither would the
bootsect commands. I now have Kali 1 which is a Debian Wheezy distribution. I included the boot-repair info and a youtube video to show what happens when I try to boot Windows.
I'm about try to get a cracked copy of Windows 7 so I can run it Live off of a USB and run EasyBCD.
(I hope this doesn't get blocked for being too localized because I really need the help. I've done days of research now to try to fix my problem.)
[Edit] I'm now leaning towards a driver error because the Windows Bootloader starts and runs as seen in the YouTube video.
[Edit2] Disk part says that the hard is an invalid dynamic disk ]
