Update to the previous "Solved" thread on this issue.
I attempted to just add on to the same thread for the same problem but was told it was solved.
So here goes.
Does anybody know how to solve the SAME problem if one is only able to boot to Windows > Dos Prompt ?
Being that windows only boots to wallpaper (error in explorer) etc. and am unable to install, run programs etc. From the dos prompt I am able to scandisk the C drive, make my way around most if not all the dir's (I didn't waste time with evey dir). And all of the software recommended assume one has Windows booted and running semi-normally - I'm at a loss.
