Windows stuck at loading files, can`t run repair
Ever since I got a power outage friday my PC has been stuck at loading files, so today I managed to get my hands on the Windows instalation DVD, the problem is that I simply can`t run the repair, not even using the DVD, directly through Windows it simply gets stuck on loading files, no mater what choice I select on the boot manager, and through the DVD it gives me an kernell dll mising error, again no mater what choice I select on the manager it is the same error.
I`ve managed to ran an disk check through gParted on a Ubuntu LiveCD and it`s giving me these errors:
GParted 0.11.0 --enable-libparted-dmraid

NTFS is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot it TWICE!
The usage of the /f parameter is very IMPORTANT! No modification was
and will be made to NTFS by this software until it gets repaired.

Try resetting BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS
Do you receive a prompt to "Press any key to boot disk" when DVD drive is set to boot first in BIOS setup?
How about if you tap the key given on first screen for One-time BIOS Boot menu? Try it now.
If you receive prompt and disk won't boot then disk is bad, so download another ISO and burn another from Steps 1/2 here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
If that fails try flash stick boot also from Step 2. If it fails unplug DVD drive to see if it's interfering.
If those fail, try the Partition Wizard CD repairs from Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot . Post back a camera snap of the drive map with listings.

greg, thank you thank you
Finally solved the problem, in case anyone ends up with the same problem this is what I did.
Downloaded the ISO from the link above(I skipped the first step since I didn't want to lose my O.C. settings), burned a DVD, and booted with it, at first I hit a wall, it wasn't detecting my Win 7 installation so I ran a chkdsk /f on the cmd promt, that seemed to fix some issues, and before restarting I ran a Startup Repair for good measure(which didn't worked and gave me an 0x1f error), after rebooting, same problem, so I tried running the startup repair some more times, no dice.
So I googled the 0x1f error to see if I'd found anyone else with the same problem, found some good advice on using Bootrec.exe, went back to the repair, ran that with the /FixMbr parameter and voila, that solved the problem, my Windows 7 installation is booting properly now.
Again, thank you very much greg
