So my computer kinda died and, fearing the worst, I looked up some guides on how to fix the problem.
At first, the error message I got was;
Info: an unexpected I/O error has occurred
So, as the guide suggested, I tried to repair Windows 7 via USB (I don't have a disk drive) and it didn't work. There was no way to restore it at all, and reinstalling the OS didn't work, as I couldn't install it to any of the drives.
Another guide I read suggested that, when I get to the drive selection screen when installing Win 7, I should open the command box and mess around with that. I (semi)knew what I was doing, but when I exited the command window, no disks or partitions came up, even after several refreshes.
So I got back into the command window to find that my usb drive is now being read as C: by the computer.
I'm not sure what to do. Did I do something wrong? Is there a way to fix it?
I'm not sure what your 'command box' guide told you to do so if this is repeating what you were already told then ignore it. Open the command prompt on the recovery drive again, and then type 'diskpart' and press enter. Type 'list disk' and press enter again, how many drives show?
