I was messing around with EasyBCD on my PC, and somehow messed up my booting options, and even though I have Windows 7 perfectly installed on it, no matter what I do, I can't get it to boot.
My computer boots from Asus Aptio Bios.
I tried making an install USB for windows on my mac (the only computer I have left) using Bootcamp, and booting from it, but all I got was a blinking underscore upon choosing my USB to boot from.
And since Ubuntu is a "hybrid" that can be run directly from a USB, I figured it would be nice to have *SOME* kind of operating system, instead of a totally bricked computer.
I downloaded the x64 iso from ubuntu, and used unarchiver to extract all of its contents onto the USB (making sure that all the files were correctly placed on the USB, after it was formatted for exFAT).
Popped it into my PC's USB slot, pressed F2 for Aptio, chose my USB, and... What! Nothing? A blinking underscore again?!
Does my computer just... not recognize anything anymore, not boot from anything anymore, or what. It worked perfectly yesterday!
All I try to do is:
1) Download iso,
2) extract iso contents to formatted USB
3) put in computer
4) press f2 for BIOS
5) choose USB
6) blinking screen!
This is both for ubuntu AND windows 7 installs... someone amazing and knowledgable must help me!
