I've read through the forums but can't find anything that will help me out. Seems like this is a very specific case.
I have an HP HPE 450t windows 7 PC. It has 2 mirrored hard drives.
During normal boot the "Starting Windows" screen flashes on for a few seconds, them the screen goes black and the PC reboots.
On reboot it asks to go into repair mode. I've tried all of the system recovery options except reinstall widows but still cant boot. Startup repair reports it can't fix the problem. None of the 7 system restore points will actually complete the restore procedure.
I can't boot in any of the safe modes.
Boot logging does not produce the ntbtlog.txt file.
I've run chkdsk
I can boot an ubuntu live CD and read the windows files.
From ubuntu I replaced the registery files with the backed up versions from a few days before the problem started but still can't boot or make use of the system recovery options.
The last thing I did prior to the problem was an adobe update. I had some malware a few weeks earlier but I thought I cleaned it out.
Any help would be appreciated.
