if you can boot from a USB or CD then you need to create a windows 7 install CD (using another computer)

 

boot from that CD and try to repair the system,

 

if that fails boot to a command prompt and run chkdsk /f /r

 

if that fails, i would remove the drive....hook it up to another computer via USB cable....then test the drive using the hard drive manufacturers software,

 

if the drive tests good you can save the data off it onto the other computer, re-install the drive and do a fresh install of windows 7

 

if the drive test bad, replace it

 

you could also test the drive while its still in the computer if you create a Hirens Boot CD or USB

I already tried to repair the system from the windows 7 installation disc but it failed

I already run the command chkdsk but situation is same

I didnt connect it to another computer with USB because i dont have sata pata connector but drive is working and it is showing my data with the help of installation disc of windows 7.

I started recovering data to my external harddisk with the help of installation disc.

But i dont want to reinstall windows again please if that is possible then give solution

Thanks for replying Bro.

See this Video. It's for Windows 10 but the procedure is the same for Windows 7. Boot the Windows 7 disk and select Repair Computer. Access a command prompt and follow the instructions in the video. The video essentially shows how to copy the backed up registry hives in Regback to the config folder. This will only work if the hives in Regback have a date before your problem and are not zero bytes.

If the above does not work I believe you are looking at a reinstall but I would first check your hard drive with the bootable Seatools for DOS.

Did chkdsk complete it's run or did it fail? I think at this point you need to look at recovering your data and checking the hard drive for a possible failure. You can download UBCD which includes PartedMagic. Burn the UBCD iso file to a CD or DVD. Boot and at the menu select Parted Magic. Click Disk Health on the desktop. Run the short and long tests.

If the computer is UEFI you may need to enable CSM or Legacy Boot before UBCD boots. You can use PartedMagic to transfer your files to a USB external drive.
