Windows 7: Windows 7 stuck at "Starting Windows"?

Windows 7 stuck at "Starting Windows"?

Solved! You just need to boot from your Windows 7 installation DVD and then get into recovery and then enter to the command prompt and finally type: bootsect.exe /nt60 all

Anyone know what might have caused this though?


I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my Msi GT627. After the first reboot it loaded fine but after that it always gets stuck on "Starting Windows" for a good 15 minutes. I have tried to boot into safemode but it always gets stuck at class.pnp or crcdisk.sys which I then renamed to .old so they woudln't load. I then get disk.sys everytime I try to load into safemode. I got startup recovery to run once but it failed and said that there was a driver error. Anyone know what could be wrong? Thanks

Hi and welcome.
I just looked up your laptop and couldn't find drivers for Win7 64bit.
Actually I didn't see any Win7 drivers just Vista.
Have you considered installing the 32 bit version instead of 64 bit?

Thanks for the quick response. I know it can run windows x64 because it had home edition prior to me trying to install ultimate. I'll give it a try though.

Thanks, I tried it earlier and it failed after 4 tries. It said that the problem might be because of a driver. I dont understand how this can be since this was the first time booting and I never installed anything especially drivers. Do yall know why safemode isn't starting either?

Yes, by booting the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, it will let you know if there is a Win7 installation to repair.

If so, accept any offered repair, then if necessary click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair. It may need to be run more than once.

If no installation is found, you can try reinstalling, or try 32 bit, or try reinstalling 64 bit HP to do an in-place Upgrade to Ult. which might resolve driver issues which are hanging your install.

It tries to repair it but says it fails and that it's probably a driver error. I've disabled ahci in the bios to see if that was a problem and all it does now is get a quick bsod right after the long hang and reboots before I can see anything. I know it's not a bad hard drive or installation disk because I have tried multiple. I've noticed that at the very beginning of "starting windows" there HD activity and my mouse powers on but when it starts hanging both stop. Should I bootlog? If so how do I do that? Thanks for the help guys.

Thanks for the link but when I tried to run it, it said this version isn't compatible with my version of windows. Do I need to run it some special way?

I think that this might be the problem causing windows to freeze on "Starting Windows"
I went to event viewer in admin tools and it said this:
