[Issue] Windows 7 Fails to boot

Hi All,

Last night i shut my machine down - as it was refusing to play when downloading.

I switched off the screen in annoyance not watching what it was doing.

I booted it up this morning to check see if it would download, it booted fine and downloaded normally again.

As i barely use my machine actually at the machine anymore - i use my iPhone to control it and watch it.

I was checking it from time to time to see if it was downloading okay when i lost connection - i went to check on it and it was in system restore process asking me to continue.

I have seen this many times at work before and fixed it by switching it off and booting as normal - this didnt work.

i tried to run the startup repair - it managed to finish the first time - but didnt work.

Second and therefore after (about 6 times), it fails to complete.

The log says it tested all tests and passed and also says it can boot - but it doesnt.

and the error signature says "Bad Patch" Maybe update caused this?

i have tried to run a recovery disk - with no change.

Anyone got any ideas or help?


PS running CHKDSK right now with /r....and is running for quite a while.
