Windows 7: Startup Repair Endless Loop

Startup Repair Endless Loop

After a (sloppily done on my part) multiple driver update on 7 Home Premium x64, I've been tossed into Startup Repair. SR goes into an endless repeating loop - never reporting failure, just an endless repeat. I've used the Windows 7 install disk and tried System Restore. Twice System Restore has reported success, yet I immediately end up booting back into the Startup Repair loop.

I am given no options - when I try F8 I'm simply tossed back into Startup Repair. I'm thinking there may be a command prompt way out of the loop, but I'm clueless in that area.

Really need to avoid a clean install.

Offering up half my kingdom for help here. Thanks.
