Windows 7: Startup Repair at every bootup. Can't go further

Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit
Startup Repair at every bootup. Can't go further

I have an IBM/Lenovo T400 ThinkPad running Windows 7 64bit.

After starting it up today, goes right into Startup Repair and it can't fix the problem. Can only report it to microsoft.

The first time I did view details: It said 2 files were corrupt:

Now everytime I reboot it still runs Startup Repair, but it does not list anything as corrupt.

I have ran chkdsk, nothing. I can't boot into safe mode, goes right to Startup Repair.

I can't boot from install DVD because this was a network load provided by my work. There is no physical media. I can't do system restore as there are no restore points.

Memory tests and hard drive tests run without error.

Is there anyway to enable the system to take a dump? It lets me access a command prompt.

Or can I download those 2 files and replace what I have?

I wish it would just BSOD as I would have more to go by.
Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: addl info:
When I send the data to Microsoft, these are the files it sends, which I looked over but don't see anything alarming... I couldn't read the ETL file as it is not plain text.


Also, here is the problem details I manually copied:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
