Laptop Boot Issue

Hi gang:

I have an HP Elitebook 8760w with an i5 and 4GB memory Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

Upon power on it goes directly to startup repair. If I boot in safe mode, -w- networking, -w- Cmd Prmpt Ect. it always boots into the repair. I have tried restore points, ran the repair 10 times now and if I click on disable auto restart on system failure it doesn't blue screen it just goes into the repair. It's as if the boot.ini is sending it to the repair as if it were normal windows. I have tried to do boot fix through CMD prompt using a win7 dvd but if I use fixboot, fixmbr or repairbcd it changes the active partition to system reserved and cannot find an OS to repair. I change it back to the windows partition and it goes into startup repair. There is no OEM partition on the HDD just sys reserved and OS.

Hi Mac:

Yes it has gone through 10 times now. 6 times it says it cannot find an issue then on the 7th it stated it could not repair the issue. Nine and ten state no issue found. During safe mode boot it goes through the list pretty fast and I cant catch the last loaded item before it states it is loading windows then loads the startup repair.
