In that case my OS drive was D:, my swap was C:, my Apps were on F:, and User data on E:
So, as my OS and boot wee on my OS drive, I run:
- sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=d:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\Windows
> Start system scanning...
2-3 sec. delay
> Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation
- then I attempted other combinations with changing /offbootdir with each of the other letters, and all these attempts ended up with the same error :
> Start system scanning...
2-3 sec. delay
> Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation
- then trying other letters for /offwindir, they all end up with immediate error "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation", likely because there is no \windows dir on those drives.

why DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS?? have you any unsigned drivers? Or did that on purpose? Not important for the problem btw

A friend of mine suggested to try log in through remote desktop, and I then figured out that the IP of my broken W7 was not reachable.
Considering it is DHCP assigned based on the outlet it is connected on, I'm starting to wonder if it is couldn't be out of order. This, along with the fact that my USB key cannot be accessed from slots at the front of my PC, but can from those at the rear, I'm really wondering if all my troubles couldn't be due to HW problems...

What do you think?

And what about my bcd posted below?

TIA

Don't know, don't think I have any unsigned driver, don't remember if I did it on purpose.

Can you see anything else sounding wrong?
What do ou think about the HW issue hypothesis?

bcdedit/set {default} safeboot minimal
this sets the default bootmode to safe mode.
bcdedit/deletevalue {default} safeboot
removes the settings so it boots normally again.

both commands can be done from running windows as well (elevated command prompt). I know the system isn't booting, so that's impossible now,

So set the default boot setting to safe mode now. Then boot into advanced boot options and select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure"

Now the system starts in its standard mode (which is safe mode now) and doesn't restart on crash (I assume this "don't restart option" is only once[?])

Now you see the BSOD. What does it say?

harddisk seems to be working fine.
bcd output is good.
usb is very strange but maybe the ports on the rear side are different (usb3, usb2). Not the cause of the problem.

dvd loads recovery environment. no severe problems with memory.
I still think it's softwaer related

LOL remote desktop has to logon as well which is impossible now.
no ip address because windows hasn't finished loading. or was started using "safe mode minimal" which has no network enabled.

But please disconnect all unneeded hardware for now, just as test. So
disconnect external, drives, printers, usb sticks etc. Leave mouse and keyboard attached.

Windows should even start without a mouse so disconnect that as well (impossible if it's a touchpad).

I don't expect it will boot then succesfully, but give it a try
