Windows 7: Win 7 start-up problems following a forced shutdown

Win 7 start-up problems following a forced shutdown

Following a software crash (Paragon Drive Backup 9 Pro) on VAIO VPCF 22C5E I
had to resort to a forced shutdown.
Now on every start-up I get the following message after the VAIO logo:


Drive 0: primary 01 win vista/2008 NTFS System Res
primary 02 linux NTFS
Insert startup disk in floppy drive and press F2 to run setup


Pressing enter at this point allows the boot-up process to continue
normally!!
Any feedback on this will be much appreciated.

Hello and welcome to SF!
Could you please try to reset basic W7 stuff:
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hi MvdB

Thanks for reply.
Ran SFC, no problems reported.
Also ran Start-up Repair, again no problems reported.

I get the feeling that this may be a BIOS related problem, as the message appears before boot-up starts.
What do you think?

Regards.

Well, I would not think BIOS but whatever multibooter you (or someone) used to let you choose a W7 or a Linux boot. Do /did you have such a thing going or is the linux message a mistake?

Is standard system, just Win 7, computer is new - delivered 4 days ago- and was operating normally until software crash and, indeed, operates normally after enter key.

A new system and you did not install multi boot yourself? Looks like you got a repaired "new system" and someone forgot to clean the linux...
I'd go back to the shop under warranty.
