Windows 7: Boot manager only loading windows setup

Boot manager only loading windows setup

Hi, I was having an idiot moment while trying to get my laptop to open the bios setup by hitting f2. I tried other function keys without the result I wanted. I hit f10 which brought me to the "edit boot options" and erased what it said there and simply typed setup thinking that might so what I wanted. To my surprise, it did not. Instead windows boot manager now will only load windows setup to restore my machine to factory settings which I DO NOT want to do. I have tried booting in safe mode but it is trying to load in safe mode for windows setup. I tried the boot manager and that says windows setup as the operating system [EMS Enabled] I have tried other combinations and other advice from other forums with no success. It won't load anything except windows setup. I need the stuff on my hard drive and cannot loose it. I probably deserve it for being a knoob at this point. Anyone knows what I can type in the edit boot options screen to get it to load windows normally or get the boot manager to load windows and not windows setup?

Can you boot to safe mode, or anything? I want you to open command prompt from whatever mode you can.
Do you have a win7 installation DVD or system repair disc?

If not do you have another win7 64bits machine? you can make a system repair disc on that machine System Repair Disc - Create and boot form that DVD on sick machine.

I can boot from safe mode but it is only safe mode for windows setup. The boot manager will only boot windows setup. I need to find a command string to input in the edit boot options to tell boot manager to load windows rather than windows set up. The edit boot options I am talking about is when you hit f10 on after seeing the Toshiba screen.

I do not have any discs because the OEM software is stored on the drive in a different partition. This whole thing started when I typed setup in the "edit boot options" after pressing f10 on startup after I deleted what was originally there. Now it seems the only operating system boot managers see is setup

So you don't have a working x64 (64bits) win7 machine there in your house?

I do not have any other Win 7 machine in my house. I am starting to get the impression I screwed myself into having to do the restore to get it back to normal. I will loose all my kid pictures and business files. What a disaster. Stupid me

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 englishX17-58997.iso
Is that the version and language you have? download the ISO. Burn to DVD using imgburn The Official ImgBurn Website
Boot from that DVD and do a startup repair as described earlier.

Well I am going to need this laptop fixed soon. I know it boils down to inputting a command string in the edit boot options to tell the boot manager to load windows instead of loading the windows setup. I cannot remember what portion was in this area before I erased it.
