Windows 7: Crashed Updating Nvidia GTX 260. Can't start Win7.StartupRepair Failed

Crashed Updating Nvidia GTX 260. Can't start Win7.StartupRepair Failed

So about 2 hours ago on my PC. I was playing WoW and had a hard crash and lock up. So I restarted my PC. Everything seemed fine. Just a mysterious crash. So I went on to updating my graphics drivers since it had been on my mind to do so. About half way into the update my desktop then crashed again. Only this time it cannot even get windows 7 64 bit to start up.

Then I ran the Start up Repair program. I get a message that it cannot repair it automatically.

On a history note. This PC has been pretty good to me. A few months back I had a bad run in where my RAM wasnt being read correctly and a simple re-docking fixed that. That was solved on this web forum as well. I don't know if its connected. Just a reference on history.

Other then that I'm not exactly sure how to go about on fixing this. I've never had a problem where even Windows wont boot up.

*Safe Mode does start up* Just not sure what to do.

BSOD data is attached. I tried running perfmon / report in safe mode but I got an error. Saying the path couldnt be found.
