Sorry i dont really know. Setting i usually dont change much. Its still attempting repairs on startup repair it use to take 10 seconds then ask to restart and would loop me through that. Its been maybe 5 minutes and its still attempting repairs.
Why it does reboot? What does it "asks"?
It asks to restart after the system repair to apply changes or something like that. Also thought I should share this report from the failed startup repair.

I dont mind reinstalling my games or antivirus and programs, basically wiping all hard drives should I do clean install for windows7 and should I be able to attempt it now and have a functional computer afterwords?

You only have to wipe what is called F now.

C is RAW as well.... but unrelated to windows.

To prepare for a new clean install:
Code:
diskpart
select vol D
detail part
format fs=ntfs label="system reserved" quick
select vol F
detail part
format fs=ntfs label="WIN_7" quick
exit
Be 100% sure to select the correct volume! "detail volume" displays the old situation. Afterwards win7 is gone and contents of bootpartition (partition with bootmgr and bootmenu) is gone as well. "system reserved" partition is marked ACTIVE and will be have the bootmgr and bootmenu after clean install automagically.

Do a clean install ... select F as where to install (the partition labeled WIN_7)!!

Your system is custom made? You know how to install motherboard drivers and network drivers and so on?

Odd I was just about to research how to do the following things you asked me this morning when I turn on my desktop and it seems to be working fine. I will try and let the computer to repair things itself now that it looks like its working but I will definitely make a backup image now and even make a spare on a cd or hard drive.

Is the system working fine again? The 931GB drive is still RAW I assume?
How did you make the system working fine?
