Windows 7: Windows won't go past welcome screen!

You have a Samsung drive; unfortunately, Samsung drivers are in a transitional period and are not properly supported at this time because their hard disk drive division was sold to Seagate.
Quote:
Now that the sale of HDD division of Samsung Electronics to Seagate Technology Plc("Seagate") has been finalized, Seagate will provide all customer support including the warranty service of Samsung HDD.
To test the drive, use Seagate SeaTools to scan the drive. Recommend downloading and burning the DOS version since you are unable to start Windows normally.

I downloaded it.. Exctracted it to my USB.. Rebooted.. Laptop wouldn't start. It kept saying remove disk and press any key.. Why are we doing this again? Didn't I do check disk already and it was fine?

We are doing this because your most common crash (non-verified and verified) is:
Probably caused by : hardware_disk
which means your hard disk is preventing you from running Windows normally.

The disk may be fine. Have you checked the connection between it and the system?

Also, it could be something SFC is not picking up that is causing the issue and is Windows related. We should rule out the hard disk first, though.

How did you create the bootable USB?

I just downloaded the DOS .iso image. Copied that into my usb. Extracted it into the usb. Moved the .iso image onto my desktop and left everything that I extracted from it in the usb.

That will not allow the USB to boot. If you have any data on the drive you do not want to use, back it up somewhere. Then use Boot Windows 7 System Repair Disc from USB Using Grub4Dos to create a bootable USB. Note: you will want to change the .iso file name in the notepad section to the title of the ISO you have for SeaTools so it should look something like:
Code:
timeout 30
root=(hd0,0)
color NORMAL HIGHLIGHT HELPTEXT HEADING
splashimage=(hd0,0)/splash.xpm.gz
foreground=FFFFFF
background=0066FF 
 
title SeaTools
find --set-root /SeaTools.iso
map /SeaTools.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)
