Startup Repair taking Hours
Hi, I'm running 32-bit Windows 7 with an Intel Xeon inside processor. This computer is my companies server. The computer kept freezing after being on for a day and I'd have to restart it to access the 2TB hard drive on our network. Today the computer would not get past the "Starting Windows" on any of the safe boots or a normal boot. I inserted the Win 7 Disc and did a Startup Repair. After doing this it asked me if I wanted to restore the computer. I said cancel and then the Startup Repair screen has been on for close to 5 hours now with the little blue square going left to right. The caption says, Attempting repairs....
Is it safe to turn the computer off by holding the power button? I can not loose any of the data on the hard drive.
Also, how long can I expect this to take, I read somewhere that it would take up to 12 hours???
Thanks in advance.
