Ok, so today I went to restart my computer and when I went to start it, it said windows failed to start. When it failed it said storport.sys was corrupt. I've tried to do start with last known configuration. I've tried to load into safe mode, it gets to loading drivers I believe and fails to start. I've put in a repair disk and tried to do a start up repair, goes through all that restarts and still the same problem. I have also tried to do all the bootrec.exe commands that I know, and SFC /SCANNOW, which told me there is a repair already scheduled and to restart. I restart and nothing, still same thing. Any help on fixing this would be appreciated.

Hi Delamos,

 

Have you done any upgrades recently or made significant changes? Storport,sys refers to storage driver. If  you have done any upgrades try to revert back.

 

This may resolve your issue. What version of Windows are you running?

No updates that I am aware of, I am using windows 7. Is there any way I could revert or go back if my windows won't start? It says system restore has no dates saved to revert to when I try system restore on the repair disk.

This could or could not be malware. No way to tell without doing scans. It could also be hardware failure.

 

You could do a clean install as an option with cd/dvd OEM.

I am able to slave drive that hard drive and access the files on this computer. Is there any way I can go about fixing this issue with the drivers or whatever the problem is while it's slave drived. When it's the main hd, it will just go to windows failed to start or if I put in a repair disk, it doesn't fix the problem with startup repair.

Hi Delamos,

 

You said you did all all the bootrec.exe commands you know. Just to verify have you tried bootrec.exe /FixMbr

 

In response to utilizing slaved drive I would defer to another member who has experience as I do not.

 

I probably would opt to saving all data and then do a clean install. However, your choice.

 

Best of Luck

 

Regards.......................
