I have a topic that is unresolved with my system not booting(goes into repair mode).   Cannot use safe modes either.

Topic was looked at in malware forum and it was determined their that malware is not the cause of the failed initializations.



I thought it would be transferred to this forum via sysadmin,  but it wasn't.

Using the flash drive previously used to access the system...

sorry for the confusion,  but how am I suppose to run minitoolbox.exe on a Win7 system that does not fully initialize?   The system starts and immediately goes into startup repair mode,  which always fails.   None of the system restore points work.   The drive was pulled from the laptop and a chkdsk with repair was run on it,  no issues found.

Have you tried running a diagnostic test of the drive by the manufacturing support site using the DOS(bootable disc) mode? If its a newer laptop model, most have diagnostic built-in utility with startup repair options by booting on advance boot menu. Another way to run startup repair is by Windows repair disc or installation disc http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392
