After a recent update my W7 pc refused to boot with a "winload.efi" error. Seems that the files signature or the file is corrupted.

I tried using the W7 install disk to repair the fault. I got a command line up and entered,

BOOTREC/FIXMBR
BOOTREC/FIXBOOT

which both suggested they had completed OK

then entered,

BOOTREC/REBUILDBCD

which told me everything was OK but it also told me there were no window os installed.

Can anyone offer any insight to my problem.

:rolleyes:

check the hard drive with chkdsk from a command prompt

Sorry you're having problems @Abarbarian. I'd try the startup repair tool from the boot DVD/USB and see if that helps:


I'd also try using "sfc /scannow" from the command prompt and see if that fixes it.
