Hey everyone, few days ago my win7 installs few updates, and when it restarted itself - it couldn't turn itself back on.

It always gets stuck right before the login screen.

 

I have tried few things:

 

1. Startup repair- told me he couldn’t find anything,

2. System restore- tells me there is no backup

3. I tried all kinds of safe modes or any other startup option from the F8 menu

4. I tried to copy & paste the auto registry backup files from C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack- caused BSOD

5. I ran the memory diagnostic tool

6. I ran FRST64 scan

7. I tried to restart the motherboard, and I disconnected every USB/other media from the mother board.

 

Non of these helped.

 

 

I attached the startup repair log, and the FRST log.

Any idea what can be done? Maybe there is a fixlist that can be created for this issue?

 

This was the startup repair problem log:

This was the FRST report:

Thanks a lot!

Paul

This is a little confusing.

 

You stated that this computer stops loading before the login screen.  But then you post all these things you have done, all of which would require either booting into Windows normally, or in Safe Mode.

No, it was all made before win startup.

 

At this screen-

I reached this screen with the F8 -> windows repair.

Its possible to access this screen also with Boot from CD.

Have you tried doing the Startup Repair using the disc?

Yes, I have. It was the same as the repair attempt without the disc.

 

Although, at the beginning the startup repair log was this:

 

Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:    StartupRepairOffline
  Problem Signature 01:    6.1.7600.16385
  Problem Signature 02:    6.1.7600.16385
  Problem Signature 03:    unknown
  Problem Signature 04:    21199439
  Problem Signature 05:    AutoFailover
  Problem Signature 06:    23
  Problem Signature 07:    BadPatch
  OS Version:    6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

Hi,

 

When you copied the files from C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack did you copy all the files? I'm asking this because FRST says the Software registry hive is missing or failed to load!

Yes i did.

At the original folder there were files that did't exist at the RegBack folder, so i didnt delete them.

But this FRST log was made after I brought back the original files instead of the RegBack files (because the RegBack files caused BSOD).

if you didn't do it already, please create a backup copy of all the files on C:\Windows\System32\config then copy all the files from C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack to the config folder overwriting all the files. Boot to System Recovery like you did before and generate a new FRST log.
