In the option for system recovery Does it have an option to do a repair install? Meaning no data will be lost. I'll look around right now.

I just read through the system recovery and there is no such option there. Just a complete recovery.

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot. Note that disks are provided to do the repairs.

The steps try everything possible to start unbootable Win7 leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run HP Factory Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

1) unattached any additional devices from your computer ( any thing ) and try it again..
2) if it doesn't help, if you can attach the HDD to another computer and check disk it or try win live and check disk your HDD
3) if also not possible say to think

Greg would it be possible for me to download the win 7 installer with SP1 ISO linked in your troubleshooting win 7 post and use that to do a repair install? This is assuming that i cannot boot into the win7 partition which i wish to fix.

Edit: More info: When I attempt to boot into safe mode for the windows 7 partition, it lists the drivers that it is loading right? Well, when I try to boot into any of the safe modes, it loads up to the classpnp.sys and then restarts.

Yes, that's why I mentioned that disks are provided to do the repairs.

So in this situation how do I do a repair install? I have just created a bootable USB from Dell Community
and I don't know what to do now.
Again, I am still unable to boot into my windows 7 OS and I from my scan with malwarebytes, I appear to have no malware.

A Repair Install is not available if you can't boot into Win7. Try the other steps leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 7) | HP® Support or Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Is there no way that I could get the iso to target my windows 7 partition somehow while I run it from my windows 8 partition?
