After Win7 install and activating BIBM system will not boot

Postby rlnicolaijr » Wed Jan 28, 2015 1:21 am

I have been using BIBM for some time. I have also used BootItNG previously.

I have recently attempted to install Windows7 Pro 64bit on a system with a RAID configuration.
I first installed BIBM.
I created a 100G partition.
I created an entry in the boot menu and attempted to boot to it.
I then installed Windows7 Pro 64bit into that partition.
The system booted up initially just fine into windows7.
I put the BIBM CD in and selected the option to re-activate BIBM.
Upon rebooting the system just boots to a black screen with a flashing curser (_).

When I put the CD in and boot again it has the option to upgrade BIBM, which I have attempted to do.

I get the same results.

When I boot from the BIBM CD and select Maintenance, I can see and do everything however; I do not get the Boot menu options.

I have never experienced any issues prior to attempting to install Windows 7.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have spent numerous hours attempting to understand and resolve this issue without success.

I have searched the FAQ's and searched the other posts in this forum.

Please forgive me with the structure and length of my post, I am a newbie at posting to forums.

remove your external devices that you may have attached, like ipod, camera,
memory card in flash slot, etc..

Ensure the correct drive is being booted... Does it get to the POST? Past
the POST? any messages at all after the POST? Consider resetting the ESCD
in the BIOS if it has that option.
