I recently bought an HP 620 notebook and i decided to partition it. I managed to partition it into 3 drives with the 4th being the recovery.
However, i have not been able boot it as it can not load windows directly. When i start it it loads bios and then shows a black screen with a small blinking underscore on the far left of the screen and this continues forever.
I have been able to make a boot disk on my USB memory stick and have been using this to boot the computer successfully. I have also noticed that when i explore the computer through Acronis Disk Director (which i had hoped will solve the problem) i see an extra 300MB disk named SYSTEM in addition to the SYSTEM(C), HP Recovery(D), MEDIA(E) and DATA(F). This extra disk does not have a letter on it and i cant see it on my computer from windows explorer.
I also tried to use a Windows 7 disk from a friend (since my pc did not come with disks)to repair installation but this has not worked also. It just showed me something about an active disk and i ran repair but did not solve the problem.
My antivirus sometimes gives me a warning about an active boot sector but it also cant solve it.
I will appreciate any help as i am sick of using the USB to boot my pc, especially that it is new.
