It seems like it's a corrupt system restore or something-
I personally have two things to prepare for any disaster happening to my system:
Ubuntu Live USB on 16gb flash drive - to boot into Ubuntu and transfer files to my flash drive Apricorn DriveWire
- to take out the physical drive and transfer files like as if it were an external USB drive (got it at Fry's)
Honestly, if you cannot boot into Windows or if the Repair Setup doesn't work (which basically reinstalls the Windows 7 over your current copy), then the best bet is to wipe it clean.
