System immediately boots to Startup Repair - No access to F8
So lately my computer's firewall has decided to not work so I searched around and eventually concluded on doing a upgrade reinstall.
As I didn't want to lose any of my files, drivers or programs.
All seemed like it went well until the computer rebooted for the last time before it reaches the
" Setting up for first use " dialog
Though before this was able to happen the computer went into a reboot loop with bsod 0x0000001E
After a large amount of reluctant clicking
The computer NOW only boots to the System Recovery Options window and the ONLY option is Startup Repair ; There is NO command prompt no diagnostics, nothing,
Just Startup Repair, in which start up repair is unable to do anything and continues to loop itself with a Don't send dialog
I have tried inserting the installation disk and accessing the Repair Computer but it presents an incompatibility error.
I have no F8 menu at all, (no safe mode, which I can't access anyway because the computer can't set up for first use).
Need any Assistance, all is welcome, thanks.

Please fill in your System Specs in bottom left corner of your post.
Running any OS without having your files backed up is careless. Running a Repair Install or Reinstall without backing up your files is reckless.
You can try to rescue your files now using step 9 in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
however I doubt there is anything to repair since the reinstall aparently failed.
So I would skip to running Factory Recovery or getting the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 (same for retail) which will yield a perfect install if you stick with the methods and tools given.
