thanks for this suggestin - it never occured to me to use the new & improved Repair console in Windows 7 to see what I could do w/ it.
I did this and had it do it's "Auto fix" of startup problems. It reported during the course of things that the disk needed to be checked, and did so in a crazy-fast 87s; made me a bit skeptical of whatever "fix" it performed as the log afterward indeed said the check was successful.
The computer then booted normally, but is now running absolutely dog slow. So i've done a memory diagnostic through the repair console (didn't stick around to see the outcome) which then rebooted the computer and booted normally, again, in to windows; still dog slow.
I'm now in the process of booting in to the repair console yet another time, launching a command prompt, and executing a chkdsk /r on the main OS drive. I am hoping this will take care of things for me. If not i'll be booting in to windows, running a system image backup, and then doing a wipe of the array.
I'll update more if need be, but for now i think this suffices.
thanks for all the suggestions!
