No boot filename received

My parents's computer is very old, I was trying to recover a partition using MiniTool Partition Recovery, after restarting(it asked me to) I've been waiting on the "updating system" screen for 4 hours, I thought it was too long so I restarted using the restart button it has, now I get this:

What should I do?It's a screenshot from symantec, but it is almost same as mine.
My HDD is listed first in BIOS

Run chkdsk & System File Checker (SFC) from the Recovery Console
  • Boot your Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD
  • When you see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", press Enter
  • At the "Install Windows" screen, click on Repair your computer at lower left
  • At the System Recovery Options screen, make note of the drive letter assigned to your boot drive (normally C and click Next
  • At the Chose a Recovery Tool window, click on Command Prompt. You will be sitting at X:\Sources directory
  • Run chkdsk & SFC
    • If you did not note the drive letter of your boot disk, you can enter bcdedit and look at the osdevice line to see what it is.
    • For chkdsk, type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter (use the letter from above if not C.
    • For sfc, type sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows and press Enter (use the letter from above)
Let either run to completion undisturbed.

Vista or Windows 7: If you don't have a install DVD, you can download a legal copy here:
Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River via Dell
Download Official Windows Vista RTM with SP1 Setup Files (32-bit and 64-bit)

Make sure you get the same version you have installed: 32 or 64 bit; Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate.

Check the BIOS settings for boot device and/or boot sequence. It's trying to boot from the network.

I've disabled network boot from the BIOS, now I am getting boot failure from previous device, I'm downloading the ISO file to run chkdsk and sfc from recovery console as Ztruker suggested.

My computer's CD-ROM is not working,I tried burning windows to a USB using the tool from microsoft store.
Then I got a message saying
"An error occured while trying to read the disc
press ctrl + alt + delete to restart", so I am unable to boot from any media.

When you burn the CD, does it have an option to specify the speed. I burn straight from Windows with no problems but most folks suggest setting the speed to no more than 4x.

I cannot use a CD, I couldn't even when it could start-up.

Ops. Sorry. I mis-read your post--Scanned too fast. Go back into the BIOS and make sure USB is included in the boot sequence. Most Boot options will include turning the USB boot on AND including it in the boot sequence. One or the other may be set off. It may be under "Advanced" boot options.

I did, I went over to the BIOS and set the USB drive first, and then the hard drive.

There may also be an option similar to "Boot to Removable Devices". I can't see the options in your BIOS so you'll have to investigate the various options for your machine.

Here's just a few:
Boot Device Priority - List (Removable Devices, Optical Drive, Hard Disk, Ethernet)
Boot to Removable Devices - Enable/Disable
Boot USB Devices First - Enable/Disable
Removable Drive Order - List (Floppy Drive, Thumb Drive, Disk Drive)
USB Boot - Enable/Disable

? Are the files C:\Windows {filename}
{19AAB71F-B7E9-11E0-BA79-001060D186D3} This is an example. Are these old uninstall data files? I would like to delete larger ones. Any tips appreciated. Thank you in advance. Kevin

Filename extension illusion
The filename below was recieved in a malicious email. It appears to have a .jpg extension but windows will run it as an application. The trick appears to be using left to right then right to left characters so the last 7 characters are "jpg.exe" backwards. I suspect this will dupe a lot of windows...
