    The win7 installation iso file needs to burned to a DVD. Then the DVD is used in your desktop system's optical drive and you want to boot from this optical drive to start the win7 repair. The same procedure would be used if you wanted to boot your desktop system using one of the UBCD boot CD's or DVD's. When your desktop starts to post, press the F12 key repeatedly, about twice per second and you should come to a boot order menu where you select your optical drive as your boot device. You can also go into the desktop's bios and manually change the boot device order so that your optical drive is the first boot device.

    You can use your laptop to download and burn any of the ISO files if your laptop has an optical drive burner. None of these CD's or DVD's will be used to boot your laptop.

    My ssd in my desktop system also fits in an internal laptop ssd drive bay and I use "standard" sata cables and psu power cables to connect to my ssd. I don't know what types of cables your laptop system uses to connect to any type of external sata drives.

    Well Prof. Jim I believe we have made progress.I got my hands on my product key and I a new 500GB WD sata drive today.The bootable disk did the trick until I forgot to get a sata cable for my new drive.There are so many options that pulled up in the configuration menu.

    It was kind of like this

    should I choose the highlighted option?

    *UPDATE*

    Things seem to be working fine now as if nothing happened.I used the start up repair option to find out what the issue was and it was a MBR failure, so I had it repaired and rebooted the system.The system went through post and booted normally to windows 7.

    AGAIN...THANKS FOR YOUR HELP PROFESSOR JIM!!!

    Thumbs up Re: My Gigabyte BIOS hangs up at the loading Screen!Virus?

    You're welcome, glad to hear that the REPAIR option fixed the MBR and that everything is OK for your old hard drive.
    While your hard drive might be OK for now, you might want to clone your old hard drive to your new hard drive and then use your older drive as a backup drive.
    I prefer to backup or clone drives or partitions from a bootable CD/DVD.

    Macrium Reflect freeware is excellent and you can create a bootable Linux or WinPE CD or DVD.
    Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

    To create a winPE optical disk, you first need to the download the free 1.7GB AIK file and install it.
    Download The Windows® Automated Installation Kit (AIK) Supplement for Windows® 7 SP1 from Official Microsoft Download Center
    There are other AIK downloads for several earlier O/S versions.

    Macrium is one of only two freeware programs that I know of that will let you create a free winPE disk.
    Most similar software requires you to download and install a paid version of their software to create a winPE disk.

    Yea, that's what I'm doing today.I'm still trying to figure out if I should keep the sata type as native IDE or set it back up as a RAID array before making a backup like that.Thanks for the Macrium tip.

    Does an AMD single drive raid array noticeably improve hard drive performance?

    If you don't want to do the extra steps to create a Macrium winPE bootable disk, you can quickly create the default Linux bootable disk.
    A winPE disk is supposed to let you do more than you can do with a Linux disk, it's up to you.
    Let us know how everything works out.

    The first and only AMD setup I ever had was a K6, quite a while ago.

    So you're saying I should use Macrium to backup the hard drive and use the WinPE AIK file as bootable disk to bring the OS back up if the hard drive should fail?

    When you create a Macrium bootable optical disk, the o/s for the disk will use winPE as the o/s or Linux.
    Linux is probably good enough, but winPE is better.
    Check the Macrium user manual to see if there is an explanation about additional features that are only available with a winPe Macrium recovery/backup disk.

    I've seldom needed to restore my system partition from a non-windows backup, but the key word here is seldom. If your o/s gets corrupted and windows can't repair or fully restore your boot partition, if you don't have a 3rd party o/s backup image available, your only option is to reinstall windows and then reinstall all of your programs. Win7 Restore and Repair have worked for me, except once when I need to manually restore win7 using my 3rd party backup.

    I never keep any data file documents, photos, or music files in my o/s boot partition, I keep these other files in other partitions, such as:
    D:\ temporary and downloaded files.
    E:\ My Documents folder as well as PDF files
    F:\ Music and Photo folders
    G:\ Windows Backkups from windows and Macrium backups.
    My system uses an ssd as my boot drive and the remaining partitions are on my hard drive.

    I also keep the two most recent Macrium or other software backups on an external hard drive that is only connected when I'm backing up any of my partitions or folders.

    A partition backup or restore should take about 20 minutes or less.
    It's up to each person to create a partition structure and backup routine that works for them.
    I use windows backup once per month after the monthly windows updates are applied.
    I perform 3rd party o/s partition backups once or twice a month.
    Some people with important daily files will also perform daily folder backups.

    There are many web tutorials that discuss optimal backup procedures.
