Failed Repair Update Install
I was attempting to recover from several BSOD's by an Update Install. This caused an MRB corruption that I recovered from, but now windows restarts (no BSOD) 2 seconds after displaying the loading screen.
I have tried many things but this is where i'm at now:
Without a dump i'm unable to trace the crash, unless there is an alternate method to capturing a dump?
Here is some information about the computer.
I have a single HDD that multiboots separate partitions of XP (professional) on C: and Win 7 x64 (professional) on D:
XP loads and run perfectly.
I have done a Hard Disk check without errors.
I have done a memory check without errors.
I have done several virus, malware, and rootkit scans without results (6 separate programs)
All hardware appears to be functioning properly.
Last thing is I am not in any hurry to fix Windows 7, so I would prefer to keep the years worth of use and find a solution instead of a reinstall.
Yes I have backed up my personal data, but I don't have any restore points or backup images. I run Win 7 in Optimized services mode (minimum set)
I will post more information if it becomes available.
