Windows 7: Stuck on Startup Repair Screen. Keeps looping.

I don't know if the crossover cable will work with a rescue disk which you must use to access the data in unbootable Windows 7.

I would instead borrow an external HD.

Or remove the HD and plug it in to another PC via USB to SATA/IDE 2.5/3.5 converter cable set which is inexpensively available on Amazon. I have one here. When it doesn't read the data plugging 2.5 converter plug into laptop HD to one end and USB into another PC, I plug it from 2.5 HD directly into a SATA or IDE port on another PC and it always reads it then.

There are some of an external HD using USB isn't it? I thought I can use the USB-USB cross cable.

Love you man. Thank you so much for your help. I will update if I need more help from you or if I manage to fix the issues with the methods that you share. Thanks again.

Oh man. Now I have a new problem when booting the machine. This is the error:


Quote:
A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart
And because this, I can't access the System Recovery(F11) anymore!

So restart the machine and I click F2 for HP Advanced System Diagnostics and run Start-Up Test, Run-In Test, System Tune-Up and Hard Disk Test. Everything give the same the results:

Quote:
Processor Check: PASSED
Memory Test: PASSED
Hard Disk SMART Check: PASSED
Hard Disk Short DST: Failed

Failure ID: RLMPNF-655690-MFPX0J-60TN03
Product ID: B3J60PA#UUF

Hard Disk 1
Then I click F10 for BIOS. I did a Primary Hard Disk Self Test on Diagnostics and I've received "Hard Disk 1 Quick (303)" for the result.

I guess my hard disk is having a bad problem. So at this moment I was able to borrow an external hard disk from my sister but the thing is it contain my sister important file inside. Since creating a bootable Windows 7 USB will be formatted to NTFS, I can't proceed yet. Is there any ways to counter this? By the way I'm downloading the Paragon Rescue Kit 11 Free Edition right now. Is this the right choice in the current situation?

I already started to feel the stress!

You can use the Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 Free to boot and copy the files out to external, or you can burn to DVD or write to flash stick the Windows 7 ISO which you will need for reinstall anyway, boot it to Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console to external.

Hey gregrocker. Can I install the Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 on the external hard disk without reformatting it?

It's intended to be burned to CD. Use Windows Image Burner by rightclicking the ISO.

If you need to use flash stick then write the Windows 7 installer to ISO using steps given in Step 5 of troubleshooting tutorial.

Hi gregrocker. Is the paragon rescue kit comes with an iso file? I can't boot this on an external harddrive where I have install paragon on. So I quit paragon and try the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool but I have issue with iso. 3.0GB is quite big to downlaod. So I download vLite but I can't locate the windows vista installation files. I'm still stuck with my issue but I manage to buy a portable 5oogb hard disk. Please help!

Did you read my post just above which explains that the Paragon Rescue ISO is burned to a CD to boot to rescue your files?

There is another method you can use to boot the Windows 7 installer or Repair CD to Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console to your external.
