Greg: If Windows 7 won't start then boot into Windows 7 DVD System Recovery Options or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Windows 7 starts.

So it skips it (it should perform an automatic chkdsk).

Can you right click C in PW and do "explore" (or something like that)? windows folders and files are still there?
yes I can explore C drive & I can see every folder there.

No resinstall!! Just "startup repair"
And from recovery environment ->command prompt
chkdsk/f c:
chkdsk/f d:

check for disk errors!

When booting press F8 every half second. Does a menu appear with options like "safe mode" and "repair your computer"?

Kaktussoft I think the Rebuild MBR using the PW boot CD will be as good as the Startup repair using the installation or repair disk , as the system reserved is already active ?

If needed, system repair disks may be downloaded from this location : http://maximumpcguides.com/windows-7...m-repair-disc/

Using it, the startup repair may be done, for three separate times, with restarts after every single run.

But, the rebuild MBR will do the same thing there, IMO.

MBR and volume bootsector is most likely perfect..you're right. But startup repair does more! System is booting btw it displays a autochk error within windows.

Using repair disk he can do a chkdsk as well
