Windows 7: Windows can't go past start up repair? Endless loop

Obviously Power Management is not Storage. Look elsewhere

It may be Hard drive boot settings shown in the last picture in post 18. What happens if you highlight and press Enter. What does the explanatory text to the right say then?

Look on the HD for the brand. Look up the makers diagnostics we've linked repeatedly, download, burn to CD with Windows Image Burner. Boot disk to see if it detects HD.

You can try IDE mode to see if it will start because the settings somehow was changed, however AHCI is the optimal setting and should be kept for a reinstall if that is not the issue.

If there are no other places where storage or hard drive are listed or referenced in BIOS on all of its pages (tabs) and you can not get it to register anywhere in BIOS by securing or changing out the cable, then the problem is most likely a failed hard drive. But you can test this if you find the HD brand to run its bootable HD Diagnostic CD scan linked repeatedly before.

You can also boot the Win7 disk provided in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to browse in to see if you can see your files using the method to Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console.

You can also boot free Partition Wizard from the same tutorial to see if the partition structure is intact, post back a picture of its drive map and listings so we can possibly spot the problem. The same PW disk can test the HD with a Partition Wizard Partition surface test

Ok, I did as you said and switched it to IDE mode but it was even worse then before (my computer wouldn't even boot from my system repair disc) so I switched it back and reset bios to default now, it's still looping back to start up repair...

I went to your second option to check for make and model of my hard drive but it says I need to acess Start menu to see,but I can't, plus I don't have another computer to burn the CD with is there another way to see what hard drive I have?

As for the copy n paste method thing, it says to Load drivers, where should load them from? My system recovery disc? Where do I copy files from? it only shows me the X drive
what should I copy and paste, please help

As for your last link, I can't access the web page via iPod because it says I need the latest version of Java script installed to view it but I can't do that DX

Okay, what's my Drive map?
Which window do I click so I can post the picture?

I said look on the Hard drive for its brand.

When is it prompting for drivers? If its when you boot the installer then it is burned wrong and needs to be done over. Are you using a fresh ISO and the Windows tool to burn to DVD or flash stick.

You would be booting in following the tutorial to see if files are visible and then copy them out.

You need another PC to make the media necessary, not an IPod

Uhh the repair disc CD I burned is an ISO I think I'm not really sure what it is I'm not using a cd, it doesn't prompt me to load drivers I clicked that option myself, a little window shows up (the one I posted with the X drive) I can also see Sys 32 folders, and my repair disc, I can't see anything else

Which drive did you Disk Check? You had to specify a letter.

Type in Command prompt:

Diskpart
List disk

Report back what it finds verbatim.

Sel disk # (Replace # with each Disk number found, one at a time)
List partition

Report back each partition info

Sel part # (replace # with each partition number, one at a time)
Detail part

Report back every detail on each partition. If you take pictures do not leave out any sizes.

Okay this is the photo of Diskpart
And below it is List Disk

As for Sel disk, can you explain just a little bit more ? I did as told and typed "Sel disk
But then changed "#" to "1" it then said "Disk 1 is now the selected disk." Am I doing this right?

Oops I forgot to say, I didn't specify a letter when I typed chkdsk what disk do you think the computer scanned?
