I am running Windows 7 on HP Pavilion laptop. Windows will not start, it boots directly to windows error recovery. If I select "Launch Startup Repair" it brings up a screen that says windows is loading files with the white progress bar at bottom, when it completes it goes to a black/blue screen and nothing else. If I select "start windows normally" it brings up a screen that says starting windows and just hangs. If I boot into advanced boot options and select "repair you computer" it brings up the windows loading files with the white progress bar, will then go briefly to a starting windows with the green progress bar, then directly to black/blue screen. I created a windows 7 System Repair Disc from an indentical computer, booted the bad one to the repair disc. It went thru the Windows Loading Files (much longer than when attempting the "repair your computer earlier), then went to the black/blue screen. I would appreciate any advice on how to proceed from here.
edit to add: Ran a Bitdefender Rescue CD which detected no virus
