Windows 7: Windows won't start, won't load recovery options either What can I do?

Windows won't start, won't load recovery options either What can I do?

Hello! All of a sudden my pc wouldn't get past the Starting windows screen, I rebooted and got an error screen telling me a recent software or hardware change might have caused the failure (I haven't changed a thing as of recently). That screen gave me the option to start in safe mode (didn't work, it would load a number of drivers and then just sit there indefinitely trying to load the next driver, but not being able to do so) Rebooted, tried the other option the screen gave me, which was using the last valid configuration, but it wouldn't work either, again it would not get past the Starting windows screen.

So I booted from a recovery cd, it shows "Loading files" and then just sits there with the green loading bar running forever. I tried this with two different discs, and let them load for hours, it would never get past that screen.

I then tried booting from a USB, this time not just the recovery options but with a full windows installation iso on it. Same result, won't get past the green loading bar despite letting it load for hours.

I have saved my files to an external disc, by using Ubuntu live. But I have no idea how to proceed to repair windows, I have used my recovery discs successfully in the past, but now nothing works. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

Hello and welcome lala now if this were me I would try this
Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 you will need to make a bootable disk and setthe BIOS to boot from the optical drive or USB if you decide to use asrick. Personally I prefer a disk.

This will run indepedent of Windows and scan for malware.

Hello and thanks for your help. I've been running it for more than 10 hours now (I've got a 1 terabyte drive almost full),however I did notice it reached a point where it's been scanning the exact same folder and files over and over. I don't know what to do. Is this normal behavior?

No lala that does not sound right and I am beginning to think maybe a test with this is in order. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=s...sm=93&ie=UTF-8

Run this and let us know what comes up.

I let Kaspersky run while I was sleeping and it completed the scan. No threats found.
I also researched a bit and found in the Kaspersky's forums that the loop issue I experienced is a common occurrence which they are aware of, and they will fix it in a new version of the software.
Do you think I should still use sea tools, considering this?
And what else can I do, considering the virus scan found nothing?
Thanks a lot.
