I believe a Saitek hardware driver hosed my Windows boot up process while I was restoring the drivers for several Saitek products. I tried using the Win 7 64k install disk to repair the MBR but that did not solve the problem. Windows 7, I assume is doing so, will prompt me to manually start Windows or run its repair program. The repair program was not able to repair Windows 7 so it starts up normally. If a driver hosed it up what file or files would it have been corrupted yet allow me to start Windows when prompted? From that it looks like something in the bootstrap routine may be corrupt but I am just guessing. Computer wiz kid I am not.
