Windows 7: Startup repair?!

Startup repair?!

it's been about 1 year and a half that my Windows 7 system is running without any problems. But this morning I had a startup repair for the first time. I don't understand why it ran as yesterday evening when I shut down my computer, there was no problem whatsoever. So what could be the reasons why the Startup repair started?

I shut down my computer with an external HD connected but disconnected it when the computer was shut down. I hardly can see how it can be the reason as it's not the first time I did so but who knows.

I didn't get an error code, but there may be a log about that somewhere (where?).

You're suggesting to boot (on the Windows 7 DVD I guess) to do a check disk, but why not do so in Windows directly?
