OH Great Repair Guru's who have fixed my computer from certain death several times, I now bring to you a problem i have not seen before.  I searched a little for a solution but sadly have given up in frustration.

Vista is my operating system.. thats about all i can remember.

when you turn on the computer it shows the normal DELL screen with the F2 Setup and F12 Boot in the top right hand corner...

then it goes to a gray ugly screen and says, "unable to start windows"  begin Start up repair...

it runs for a while, i assume it is uploading all my data to some foreign country....

Then it comes on and says "start up repair can not repair automatically"  would you like to send this info to Microsoft"

Startup Repair V2

1 u fail over

2 6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.18000 

3  6

4 393221

5 bad patch

6 oxa

7 0

8 2

9 WRPRepair

10 0

os version 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.1

1033

 

Then it offers to System Restor files to a previous date....

then it runs a while...

then it says

System restore did not complete successfully your compters system files were not changed

system restore failed due to an unspecified error

cannont create a file when that file already existst (0x800700b7)

 

Now i have options of

start up repair

system restore

windows complete pc restore

windows memorty diagnostic tool command prompt.

 

I wait for your great knowledge and expertise.

Thanks

AP

I would try a repair installation, this will not effect your personal data or programs you installed.  You can find a tutorial for running the repair installation and a site where you can download Vista SP1 ISO file here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Repair Install For Vista

 

I'm not sure how this is happening, this is the second time today that I've posted a link BBC to have the link take the op back to their topic.  The link above is the same as the one in the previous post of mine.
