This morning Win Update had another important update, think from last night, so I installed that. It promted a reboot so I did that. Everything seemed fine to be going just fine, but by the time it had booted up Windows and was configuring the update, it never passes that and restarts my laptop on its own. After that it gets stuck in a loop until I shut the thing down.

I've tried to boot it in safe mode, but I can't even do that. I tried that last working restore point, but that failed as well. There was also the option of disabling restart in case of a crash, but it still restarted. Startup Repair doesn't work either. All I get from that is a promt to restore factory settings.

I would rather avoid using my backups since... It's been couple months now since I last backed up my files and there are some things I wouldn't want to lose.

Do you have the vista dvd because according to this article you may need it to perform a repair install.
