Hello,

What happens if you press alt+ctrl+del?

Can you boot in safe mode?

You must find the issue somewhat frustrating.

I would be inclined to suggest that you insert you Win altimate CD, reboot and attempt repair.

I will be logging off for the day.

If you wish to continue, send a private message to this wizard friend Sundar7701 and ask him his advice.

Hi,
After a very hard thinking and weird trials, I sorted myself out. May be some one will get this problem and will need to sort it out this is all I did.

I reformatted the disc completely win Win 98 OS. Installed the Win 7 Ultimate and it worked. The issue might have been brought about by the partition that had the recovery files...so get rid of it.

Happy pitah
