Boot up using the Startup Repair CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, you will need a CD/DVD drive.

Do not use a USB Pendrive for Startup Repair.

If you have not made your Startup Repair
System Repair Disc - Create

No luck = ( Its seems to be stuck in this startup repair circle.....its a Dell, so I did a system restore back to original factory date and when it restarts it goes right into the startup repair that says it cannot fix the problem and takes me right back to system repair options. I requested the original Windows 7 discs and the drivers & utilities disc.....they emailed me and I should get them in a couple days. Will I be able to do a clean install of Windows 7 and escape this vicious startup repair circle its stuck in?
