hi, i have windows 7 home premium 64 bit but i get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) when 'Starting Windows'. i cannot boot into safe mode, i get the BSOD again. i have tried last good known configuration, and same happens again. i tried startup repair with the startup repair CD several times. i do not have the original windows 7 CD so i cannot reinstall windows. i have a dual boot setup with windows xp and windows 7 but i want to keep them both. Please Help!!!

when you see the selection screen with win7 and winxp select win7 but don't press enter. press f8 instead. select "repair my computer" and do a startup repair

But does "startup repair" say? click on something like "view diagnostics" there. Does it have 0x0 as result code on all tests, or does it find errors? if so post message

in "recovery environment" enter "Command prompt"
DIR C:
DIR D:
what is your windows installation (drive letter can be different in windows!) assume it's C (what drive letter is it?)

chkdsk/f c:

any errors? and are they fixed?
