System restore isn't possible if recovery environment doesn't list win7 as you told before!! Did startup repair fix that problem? why doing a system restore?

I'm in Bios, and the boot drive is specified as cd-rom which clearly is a problem, so I forget, should I select hdd group or network boot group?

The "system restore" indicated that it was successful, booted again and I pressed f10 to get to bios to have it boot correctly...so which do I choose....he'd group or network boot group?

Sorry that I got ahead of the replies, clearly I'm an impatient guy...I'll await further instructions...

Yeah I couldn't await further instructions...darn ADHD!
I'm back in to the W7 OS!

Kaktussoft, that is exactly correct, after unplugging the tower and waiting 15 minutes, plugging it back in and powering up I got something to display. It loaded the W7 repair disk and it brought me around to several options...system restore, system repair, and a few other options...after the other options brought me to a dead end, because my OS was not being seen, I finally chose "system repair" which was successful and brout me straight to system restore, then I rebooted into BIOS and changed the boot disk as the wrong disk was selected, then rebooted into my normal W7 OS with a message that "system restore was successful"...my system has been restored to 2 days ago.

So what is recommended to be sure that everything is good?
Maybe scan disk for errors?

do a scandisk and a memory test as well. Don't know what solved the problem. But first post C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt

Attached the SrtTrail.txt file in wordpad

I hope it makes sense to you, I dont know what to think of the information in the file, it indicates "Last successful boot time: ‎10/‎14/‎2011 8:26:00 AM (GMT)
Number of repair attempts: 1"...huh?

Because win7 wasn't listed in the list in recovery environment... startup repair didn't know where win7 was. So it couldn't make the srttrail.txt file on that volume. At least that's what I think. But now I don't know what it did test and what was fixed! Next time click "view diagnostics details". Without failure info and fix... I don't know what happened.

I looked at event viewer and got the following:
Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 7

Why it did so I dont know, other than pulling out the USB flash drive while it was...cancelling...or whatever it was doing, it was just stuck and didnt seem to be responding. I think the PNY flash drive just doesnt get along with the OS, though I must say a lot of the flash drives I use seem to jamb up the system. I think I need to pay attention to the brand that works best.

Does anybody have any experience with flash drives freezing up the OS or crashing the PC? This PNY 32 Gb I have really gives me problems.

The craziest result of the crash was that the file size indication of a couple of my 2Tb drives is crazy. I have 2 internal Barracuda 2Tb drives that has various media on them. Filoes that I know are, say, 200Mb show 200Kb instead. The whole drive size shows correctly but individual files within the drive show Kb when they should show Mb...whats that all about?
Everything is working so far, the file size thing is crazy.
