Last week I left my computer overnight, and when I came back all I saw was a blinking _ cursor on my screen. I rebooted and inserted the windows 7 recovery disk, but no amount of re-imaging, system restoring or startup repairing solved my problem. I did a bit of looking and a bit of asking, and apparently the problem was an issue with my Master Boot Record. Turns out this was easily rectified. Just follow these steps:
2> Enter your region, language, whatever else and press ‘Repair this computer’
3> Select your windows installation and press ‘Next>’
4> click Command Prompt
5> type in ‘bootrec.exe /fixmbr
6> reboot computer and take out recovery disk
7> voila! you should be booted into windows!
