Windows 7/Vista/Server(No SLIC)
Debug(Default)
Debug(Legacy)
Windows NT/2000/XP
Loader help

And no matter which one i choose it give me a list off things that loads and stops for 30 secs after that it goes to this

drive 0x80(LBA): C/H/S=30402/255/63, Sector Count/Size=488408130/512
Partition num: 0, active, Filesystem type is ntfs, partition type 0x07
Partition num: 1, Filesystem type is ntfs, partition type 0x07


****

Options if your HDD is larger than 1TB:
*Move your boot files to a smaller partition at the start of the HDD.
*Format the HDD and allow Windows to create a 100MB boot partition.
*Shrink and move your partitions with GParted.

*Something* (please read as *some warez* you downloaded) installed to your system a version of grub4dos (together with a "malformed" menu.lst).

Well, you either searched with the wrong keywords or more probably one of the stupid limits of the stupid board software stupid search (yes, that's three times stupid ;)) bit you :ph34r:, we have TWO threads here dealing with the same or very similar issue:
http://reboot.pro/3833/
http://reboot.pro/5770/
To see properly the contents of CODE boxes (corrupted by a stupid board update - and yes this is the fourth "stupid"), you will need this "online translator":
http://reboot.pro/15275/
http://pastehtml.com.../b4t99xk89.html

I will gladly help you recover from this, but you must provide some background, which system is it (laptop/desktop/make/model, etc.) , how exactly were your disk(s) partitioned BEFORE the issue, which OS you had running, etc.
You can use the above mentioned threads as a "general reference".

If you have a digital camera (on anyway some means to take an actual snapshot of the screen with the result of a couple of commands you should run) it would be easier.

:cheers:

Or, use a Windows rescue disk ( if it's a Windows system), go to the command prompt there, and :

bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot

Sure, that's exactly what is talked about on post #8 here:

http://reboot.pro/5770/#entry45498

it may work but it may not.
In the cited cases the issue if Irecall correctly was a wrong partition ID in the MBR, something that I don't think bootrec would fix , as bootrec should restore just CODE and not correct DATA.

Yeh, it's never a guarantee. But every time I've had some POS installer leave bits of Grub on my (windows boot) MBR, it's fixed it for me. 'One of the things to try', anyway.
