Toshiba laptop running Vista sp2
I can't get Windows Vista to finish loading. I haven't added any hardware recently. Software yes, updates yes.
After the BSOD which flashes by too fast for me to read, I ran the Startup Repair option then it says "The system could not repair the startup problem" and posts a message at the end of the repair log that said "A bad patch is preventing the system from starting".
When I select Start Windows Normally, it simply reboots, without even making it to the logon screen. I tried to boot in safe mode, but loads only as far as crcdisk.sys and then restarts.
I tried going into Advanced and using System Restore but it tells me that there are no restore points. I can get to the command prompt and other drive partitions.
I don't have backup or install Cd's or DVD's. I only have whatever Toshiba put in a partition on the drive.
