Been exploring all day with all the checks and tools the OS uses and Win7 CD- no homeruns yet....

 

the recovery utility couldn't figure out what exactly was the problem and gave me those codes.

I still have the Windows 7 installation disk (full install disk), and I boot from there, go through the recovery process so it can fail and I can select to do advanced options where I can access the command prompt.

What I Have Tried So Far
 

  • Boot in safe mode
  • Boot with minimal graphics
  • Run chkdsk (no problems found)

All of the above failed to solve the problem.

From the command prompt, I have attempted...
 

  • chkdsk
  • sfc/scannow

The above didn't work either.

Hi

 

Instead of selecting "Safe Mode" , please select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure" and the system may halt on a blue screen instead of restarting.

 

Then take a clear screen shot using either digital cam or cell phone and post with the next reply.

 

F8_on_boot_Disable_automatic_restart_on_

 

 

If you are not receiving any blue screen  and the system continue to boot to the "Startup Repair" , please try restoring the system to a date prior to this happened.

If you are able to boot in Safe Mode, perform a clean boot to troubleshoot the drivers and startup.

 

Here are the instructions:
