Help: Windows 7 64-Bit Not Booting
I installed Windows 7 64-bit on my Motion LE1700 in January and have had great success with it. Yesterday it flaked out on me and won't boot any longer. It POSTS just fine and gets to the Windows Boot Logo, but hangs. I tried booting in safe mode and it hangs on classpnp.sys without going any farther. I tried using the system recovery from the Hard Drive and also by using the Windows 7 DVD. However, neither boots into the Windoes recovery console. It just hangs. I pulled the hard drive and then the Windows 7 was able to boot from the DVD and present the windows install screen. However, when I put the hard drive back in the drive bay, connected, it still just hangs when trying to boot from the DVD. I can't even get a command prompt. I used a windows 98 boot disk to run check disk and memory extended diagnostic and did not find any errors, so I am concluding just this particular file is corrupted and stopping the boot process meaning it is not a hardware issue. I did also turn off all WLAN, bluetooth, LAN, TPM, etc. in the BIOS and still have the error.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix? I am waiting for an IDE usb enclosure to come in so I can connect the drive as a USB device to another computer to try and replace the corrupted startup driver. However, it will take a few days to arrive so I am looking for options in the mean time.
