Windows 7: Startup repair trouble

Startup repair trouble

Hi there.

I recently made some hardware changes to my computer, and now windows will fail to boot and launch startup repair instead. Once startup repair is done it tells me it can't fix the problems and shuts the computer down. When I restart windows boots perfectly.

Is there any way I can fix this error without having to reinstall windows?

Here's the startup repair log:

In windows start Elevated Command Prompt

Code:
sfc/scannow
No integrity errors? If errors make a copy of C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
Zip that copy and post here on thread

Usually system directory is C . Your Windows directory = D:\Windows . I think this is the problem . Do You have C disk or partition and what is on it?

Not true! Drive letters are just.... drive letters. What drive letter a partition (or better said a volume) gets can be defined in registry. WinRE uses another registry as Windows 7 itself of course.

There is just a recognized partition before the OS partition. Most likely "system reserved" or some RECOVER partition. Quite normal

Hello all. Thank you for your quick answers.

I ran the scan and it found some errors it couldn't correct. I have appended the CBS.log zip file.

This also puzzles me, but it seems not to be an issue going by Kaktussoft's words. To answer you question, I don't have a partition. When windows works fine it labels itself as being on the C:\ directory.

Here's a short resume of what I did to get these problems. Hopefully it can shed a little light on what's wrong.

I had recently bought a new case and moved my hardware over in it. While doing that I decided to get rid of an old soundblaster card, and a cd-rom burner. I also added two extra hard drives. None of these hardware changes included uninstalling the devices in windows first.
During the transfer I managed to destroy my PSU. When the computer wouldn't boot at all, I cleared the CMOS on the motherboard, figuring that would do the trick.

So all in all I've really managed to stack the cards against me.

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which lead up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which may be your best option since its even better than getting a new PC.

Are you able to boot to windows? It looks like you can because you posted CBS.zip. If you can boot to Windows 7 open "device management" and delete all drivers related to soundblaster. A cd-rom burner uses a standard driver so isn't a problem. Also adding extra disks isn't a driver problem.

I gonna analyze CBS.log

Anytime you make major changes to your computer as you have it is a good idea to reinstall (clean) the OS. If you have more then one HDD then remove the (wires) from the original and allow the second HDD to become the new OS HDD. Once you have everything up and running then you can reconnect the original drive . . .Good Luck. . .

CBS.LOG has an error about Culture.dll

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727 does contain Culture.dll ?

It has nothing to do with problem we're talking about

why not just repair your windows 7... place win dvd and select the repair button.
i think the problem comes with your new HDD installation, others wouldn't cause such problem if they are healthy.

also check your bios setup and make sure you have proper boot priority
also i dont recommend you to install your windows in D:\ partition.
