If my boot is corrupted, how am I suppose to fix it. I tried to run the programs on my system recovery console and nothing happened. Should I reinstall Windows?

You can go to the drive manufacturers site and see if they have a diagnostic utility. I've used the Western Digital Lifeguard tools in the past to fix simular issues.

You'll want to download the DOS-based version and run it from a CD.

Ok, so while i was reinstalling my OS onto my computer I got the following error 0x80070057 . I know that this is an error regarding 3rd party drivers, but how am I to fix it.
