So, in a nutshell, I have been bitten by the Bluetooth uninstall bug that has completely trashed my Windows 7 boot partition. I tried to install the latest version and near the end of installation, it threw up an error message and then rolled back. Upon reboot, i had an error message coming up about bluetooth. So, I tried again to update but same error. So, i figured I would uninstall the current installed version and then install the new version. Well, uninstalling the old version blew out my drive by deleting just about everthing that was in the partition. Of course, after the uninstall it stated i need to reboot for changes to take effect. When I rebooted, threw up a black screen with message about corruption and to put in windows 7 disk and try and repair. That didn't work (obviously as most of my files are gone).
I have a parttion on the drive with Win XP Pro and that will boot but the version of Rescue and Recovery under XP will not load the backups that were created under Windows 7 and R&R v. 4.3.1.
So, my question is, how do i restore my backup on the Windows 7 partition? Do i need to reinstall from the Win 7 disk to the Windows 7 partition and then install R&R 4.3.1 and then run and restore from the backup or is there some other easier way I can run a version of R&R v.4.3.1 to do a restore.
Any and all help greatly appreciated.
