Windows 7: Windows 7 won't boot/come on

dazzlenet,

Sometimes the inability to know/understand why this machine will not boot normally after the fixes might be caused by too much staggerweed.

The action undertaken here was meant to rule out malware as a cause of the issue, and reconstruct the Registry, since damaged Registry files, malware, and corrupted data, can result in Windows Error Reporting.

Attempts to manually repair the Windows 7 Boot Loader (bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot) have failed in every case seen so far with this problem.

Root cause found: Boot status indicates that the OS bo - there is nothing else after the "bo" - just the Close button.
It should read:
Root cause found: Boot status indicates that the OS booted successfully.

It may or may not help to see the Addition.txt that was produced when you initially ran FRST. It identifies application and system errors.

If not available on you pen drive, run FRST again, check Addition.txt, and post both reports (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in your reply.

Also, perhaps someone with expertise in analyzing dump files or the like will jump in to assist.

The problem signature 7 indicates a bad driver, most likely the missing driver which you said about.

The Locale ID simply shows your timezone and location settings for your computer.

Have you tried booting into Command Prompt from the Recovery disc, and then entering this command:

Code:
SFC /SCANNOW

Thanks, x BlueRobot!

That is a good option.


@dazzlenet:
Another thought...

Tap on F8 until the Advanced Boot Options Menu appears.

Is there an option to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement ?

If so, please select, and allow the computer to start.
You may need to restart a second time...

Yes, I tried starting it twice this way and it still goes to Windows Error Recovery Screen

At this point, under Startup Repair, it reads:

Root cause found:
Startup Repair has tried several times but still cannot determine the cause of the problem

I will run FRST again and see if it helps.

Thanks for all you help. I have worked on this computer for days....running everything so many times that I have decided to give up and take it to a computer store to see if they can repair it.

Did you try SFC /SCANNOW also?

Most cases with this issue ended up reinstalling the OS.

Yes, but it won't scan b/c of message that there is a repair pending.

It is going thru system image restore right now, which I have tried before. I have an old computer that hasn't been run in years. Wonder if I could take the hard drive out of it and get my data off this computer I'm trying to repair?

The missing driver is going to be a Windows driver, you could try booting with a Linux LiveCD and gathering your data, and then performing a clean install - Clean Install Windows 7

Anothe thought...

Get to the Command Prompt, and use the following command:

Code:
 
dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
Press: Enter


You should see something like:
Reverting pending actions from the image.... The operation completed.
Any revert of pending actions will be attempted after reboot.

Reboot the computer.

Any luck?

If no luck, would follow X BlueRobot's suggestion, and save yourself a hefty repair bill...
