  3. Select your Windows installation and press Next
  4. Now you should be at the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  5. Once the command prompt opens type: DEL C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSNVLDDMKM.SYS
  6. If you have problems with sound type:  DEL C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSati*.sys
  7. Now reboot
  8. You should now be in Windows 7 (however it will look a bit pale and large, this is normal)
