Repair unbootable Windows 7?

Is there a tutorial for how to use command prompt to repair unbootable W7? I tried automatic repair method but it did not fix the problem. There is no restore point or restore image. So, I want to try command prompt but do not know how it can be used to repair.

have you just tried a regular repair off the disc?
Also exactly what is the problem?
This works sometimes if it's just corrupt files.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

it requires you to be able to start windows though.
Your post it kind of confusing because it sounds as if you are able to boot.
If that is the case this should work
Repair Install

I could give better info if I had more regarding the actual problem you are having.
