Windows 7: Windows 7 - Home Premium x64 | Startup Repair System Installation

Windows 7 - Home Premium x64 | Startup Repair System Installation

Hey All,

So I am pretty sure that my Windows 7 home premium installation has become corrupted somehow. I've just noticed thins not 'working' well and have been experiencing more and more BSODs over time.

I have ran many disk / system file checks (sfc /scannow), and it states that there are certain files that are corrupt but cannot be repaired.

When I try to run a 'Startup Repair' from my Windows 7 DVD it is unable to find ANY Windows Installations, which concerns me.. and therefore leaves me no options to fix.


Yesterday, I decided to try and do a 'upgrade' repair from the Windows 7 DVD in hopes that it would completely clean/replace all system files.

It took forever, but finally upgraded. All my files remained (which is what I wanted), however, nothing seems to have changed.

When I tried to do the startup repair, it still dosen't find any Windows installations on my system.. which makes NO SENSE.

Obviously I have a working windows installation, since if I take OUT the Windows 7 DVD, it will boot normally, and things seem to be working (other than a few weird glitches/ BSODs everyonce and a while).


Can you please help me with the following:

1). Is there some 100% method to see if my Windows 7 Installation is corrupted / not working right?
2). If Startup Repair dosen't recognize any Windows installation, does this mean my installation is corrupted?
3). Is there anyway to fix the Startup Repair?
4). I am trying to AVOID having to completely clean-install Windows 7, however, if there's no other way I'll have to.
5). Does the Windows 7 Upgrade replace all system files?
6). Is there any other way to fix system files (3rd party software or whatever)?

Thanks,

Caspurrr

Why not invest now in a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which you can then save after setup as a backup image and never have to reinstall again.

You'll get and keep a perfect install to the extent you stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial.

Otherwise post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

You can sometimes force Windows 7 install to show in WinRe by running these steps How to run the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows.

But we need to make sure the correct partition is still marked Active so post back the screenshot first.
