    Are those Windows installation media retail or OEM versions or something else? Are they some kind of backup of an original? Are they bootable on other PCs?

    Sorry, must have read over that, your original post (OP) is not that well formatted.

    What about deleting the Boot Camp partition and re-creating it? Do you have access to an external optical disc drive (ODD)?
