INF file needed to restore Windows 7 OS in System Recovery Options. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My laptop has been acting up and I want to do a system repair. I've gotten several BSODs which lead to the operating system not being found. I ran a virus scan before the latter and nothing was found. I can get to the recovery options via my usb stick, but when I get there the operating system is not shown.

    My only option is to load the drivers via the options dialog box to get my system working again. I say this because it doesn't automatically detect the OS. I've tried selecting a few INF files but none have worked.

    So if anyone knows the correct INF file to recognize my hard drive and get my system back to windows, please help. If I can get back to windows I can save my data files to my external hard drive and then do a complete wipe of the drive.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1564 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

    Thanks very much,
