I'm really a novice at this but my son has MR 5.0 on a Windows 7 Dell XPX 8700 PC. He ended up with some corrupt files and I was told by a computer tech (he messed with PC for an hour)that I either needed to wipe the hard drive and do a clean install, or try to restore to an earlier image. I had just done an image backup the day before the issues began so the tech wasn't entirely sure the image backup wasn't corrupted too but might be worth a shot.

I always Optimize the drive before reinstalling Windows so I thought I could wipe the drive by https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/91339-ssd-hdd-optimize-windows-reinstallation.html and then do the MR image restore but apparently I can't.

Once I Optimized the drive I removed the Windows CD and rebooted thinking I would get the option of the MR boot menu but I don't. Guess this is how little I know about how this process works.

Is my only option now to do a Clean Install.
