Windows 7: Windows 7 won't boot from rescue disc

BSOD looks like a text screen with blue background while generating a report. Then shuts down the computer.

"....as the computer wants to load up Windows." So you can't boot?
Is it so hard to you to explain (in details) what happens to your computer from the moment you press the power button till it freeze? Shutdown?
When pressing F8, choose Repair your computer.

I can't boot into Windows
When I hit the power button, Windows Error Recovery comes up, then it automatically, if I don't make a choice, it loads files, and then it goes to my Blue screen, and sits there. Doesn't ever shut down .
If I make choice in the Windows Error Recovery, of Launch Startup (recommended), it says Windows is loading files, and then goes to a grey screen.
If I choose Start Windows Normally, it says Starting Windows, then it goes to back to Windows Error Recovery window where you choose Launch Startup (recommended) or Start Windows Normally.

This one is entitled SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS
There are 2 choices: 1. Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows. Select an operating system to repair.
If your operating system isn't listed click Load Drivers and then install drivers for your hard disks.

2. Restore your computer using a system image that you created earlier.

Load Drivers. Next

Welcome to sevenforums

The rescue disc is also called repair disc, or rather system repair disc.

So you need to repair first, if it can or not.

If not, on option 2 mean re-install to factory setting.


Note that this will use the hidden partition on recovery to re-install.

I don't know about on HP matter now.
As in the past, i had to use more than one DVD to do the backup to re-install to factory setting.

The OP need to do factory installation, if the rescue or repair disc do not work.

It looks like I don't have any alternatives, other than do a factory reset?
