Fix Windows 7 With SFC From Windows 7 DVD

Windows 7 does not come with a repair option like Windows XP has when booting from the OS disk. The one option you can do is run the SFC command. Normally you would run this withing theĀ  OS but if you can’t boot into Windows 7 then follow the instructions I found online from Windows Seven Forums. The main part of the procedure is boot with your Windows 7 DVD. Go to System Recovery Tools and Select the Command Prompt. Once you have the Command Prompt type the following:

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=f:\ /offwindir=f:\windows

Where f is your harddrive. Sometimes you have to change the offbootdir=C:\ and offwindir=d:\windows
