Windows 7: Recovery console won't load from repair disk

Recovery console won't load from repair disk

I'm running 64 bit win 7 on a Gateway NV79. I was having trouble where windows wouldn't boot. I tried startup repair and it seemed to work until I restarted and it failed to boot again. I came across this page How To Rebuild the BCD in Windows [10 to 20 Minutes] and followed the steps to rebuild the BCD, but when I went to restart I received the Boot/BCD 0xc000000f Error. I tried to run the recovery console from a repair disk but I can't get past the System Recovery Options screen that searches for your operating system. It's been running for several hours but never gets to the options screen where you can choose a recovery tool. Is there anything else I can try?

It's stuck searching for the OS? You could try a System Restore Point, or Last Known Good Configuration in the F8 Advanced Boot Menu.

I've got it to load but to do it I have to shut it off and restart several times and when it does load it doesn't find windows.I'm not able to use F8 because I get the \Boot\BCD OXC000000F error.

XP recovery console versus Vista/7's recovery console
It seems to me that XP's recovery console is somewhat better than the one that comes with Vista or 7, unless someone can point me in the right direction for finding further documentation on this topic. The main difference is the lack of ability to tinker with services (LISTSVC / ENABLE / DISABLE...
