Hi Badbob,

Aren't you in badbob trouble.

If you have not changed the boot order and if you are not booting with an other usb external drive connected, your Windows 7 may be corrupted or your hard drive is damaged. There are to keyboard fix for the latter.

Try to boot and safe mode and see if you can repair.

Hi Bob, your issue is complex,

You cannot just have drives and OS on flash drives, it won't work because the operating system (windows) is not found.

I suggest you restore to factory setting. You will lose all of your data but it's better than a useless computer.

See this link:

Good luck
