Windows 7: Startup repair infinate loop

Startup repair infinate loop

I'm not sure if I am in the right category but I'll just leave it here. I downloaded a corrupt file and my computer went crazy and so I shut it off and now it keeps going through the start up repair over and over. It'll say that it's rapaired and it will restart but then it will go straight back into doing it over and over. Can someone please answer this quickly because finals are next week and I have unfinished papers and websites and animations on my computer that need to be handed in pronto. Thanks in advance.

By the way, F8 does not get me into the advanced boot options. I also see no way to get into safe mood.

I tried that. My computer says that startup repair will finish the repairs once it restarts and then it does so. I do not have the option to click on "View advanced options for systems recovery and repairs" the only thing that I can click on says "Click here for diagnostic and repair details."

In that case, open a command prompt at boot (If able. May need to try different options there to do so) and see if you may be able to pick up at step 7/8 in the tutorial above.

I can't get into the System Recovery Options or the Advanced Boot Options Screens. The only "F" buttons that work for me are F2 and F12. Are there any other ways to get into the command prompt?

Do you have a retail Windows 7 installation disc to use to boot to a command prompt with?

If not, then you could download a Windows 7 ISO at the link below to create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive with to use for this. Afterwards, use step 1 in OPTION ONE in the tutorial above for Shift+F10 to open a command prompt at boot.

I tried to created a bootable USB flash drive and this is the message I recieved: "Files copied successfully. However, we were unable to run bootsect to make the USB drive bootale. If you need assistance with bootsect, please click the "Online Help" link above for more information." I went to the online help but I seem to can't find any solutions to this problem.

Okay so I decided to just forget the flash drive and I loaded it onto a DVD and it won't come up on my computer. I put it to boot from the DVD drive and it will be a black screen for a couple of seconds then it will go straight to the setup recovery over and over. I can hear my computer reading the disk but for some reason it just won't show. I know I copied the iso right because I just put windows 7 on my previously vista desktop.

Do you not get the "Press a key to boot from CD/DVD" type message at boot to actually begin booting from the DVD?

Have you already tried to open your boot menu at boot by pressing whatever F# key for setup/boot menu, then select to temporarily boot from the DVD or USB to see if it may then?

Okay I got it to work and did the steps in the tutorial. However, Once I restarted my computer, it went back into the loop.
