Stuck on startup repair after bsod

Right guys I don't know what's happened but I've tried turning my laptop on today and when it's on the windows logo loading at the start after 2 minutes I get a bsod saying process operization failed then it takes me to start up repair which says : windows cannot repair this computer automatically
Problem details: problem signature 07: bad disk
I've tried command prompt rebuildbcd
So now I'm stuck on how to fix this?

All your help will be much appreciated!✌️

Get bootable Partition Wizard free, and make CD/USB (Bootable Partition Manager | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition). Boot with it and take a photo. Attach here Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

bad disk is not a good sign

What else did you try from Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start?

Waiting to see the PW screenshot which might be revealing.

What is working? Is Win7 starting?

First let's deal with the bad disk by highlighting Disk1 again as you have done in picture, then run Partition surface test with Partition Wizard to learn the condition of the hard drive. If there are bad blocks then you can confirm this using the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan. If it fails both tests then replace the HD. The best replacement you can get and the best upgrade you can give Win7 is to buy an SSD, lightning fast, even faster than buying a new high-end PC without one.

If HD passes with still no start and you have tried every other step in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start then follow Step 10 to try moving the boot files to OS partition by Marking Partition Active then running Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If this fails you can try to construct a System Reserved partition using PW CD to shrink OS partition from the left by 200mb, create a Primary Partition, Set it Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times .

I'm running the test now, it's got 1 hour and 4 minutes left remaining and so far I can see 1 red square?

In that case once it completes I'd let the manufacturer's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan decide for sure if it's failing. PW is not as definitive but just an indicator like SMART.

What is your HD brand? If it has no maker's diagnostics then use Seatools ISO burned to CD with Windows Image Burner.
