Windows 7: Windows 7 always boot startup repair

24 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (32-Bit)
Windows 7 always boot startup repair

Since this morning when i rebooted my computer it throws me into startup repair, it says it cannot repair the problem automatically and one significant signature is: Corrupt file,

anyway, my first though was that wrong partition has been set as active for some reason, but it wasnt, but to be sure i manually set the active partition to the one Windows 7 is located on, which resulted in that it couldnt find bootmgr, so i did alittle more research and found out that my bootmgr was somehow on another drive than the systemdrive.

When i was unable to get into startup repair anymore, i used a recovery disc, which detected the bootmgr error and corrected it, so the bootmgr is on the same partition and drive, but then i were back where i begun, doesnt matter if i choose failsafe or normal it always throws me into startup repair which cannot do anything at all.

Im stuck, and my problem here is that the system drive is a dynamic drive and contains 2 partitions, which is a total of 250 gb, so if im going to reinstall Windows 7 i need to backup around 180GB and i dont have room for that anywhere, so i cant, just because its a dynamic drive and you need to redo all partitioning when installing. which will reformat the drive, and my data is gone, i need to find out how to rescue this without the need of reinstall.

I have also tried to remove all extra hardware including PCI hardware and DVD-ROM and lots of stuff to be sure that its not a hardware failure, the memory is fine also and the disc health.

Im so tired of this problem, if i only knew what could be the cause, i can reach the OS files with another OS on a different drive (WIndows XP) so i should somehow be able to manually repair the problem. Any clues?
