Windows 7: Windows does not boot

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - Service Pack 1
 
 

On this image, that is Partition 3.

List of partitions :
- Partition 1 = Recovery (That have only 14GB, you can't use for OS)
- Partition 2 = Windows 7 Reserved (That partition create Windows 7 on install)
- Partition 3 = I think OS (Where you installed Windows 7)

So you need to active partition 3.

Try this link :
Partition - Mark as Active

Steps how to do it, if you don't know what to follow :
1. Open Command Prompt window.
2. Type this :
Code:
diskpart
           list disk
           select disk 0
           list partition
           select partition 3
           active
3. Reboot and maybe you can boot to Windows 7 !

You want to set the System Reserved partition as active, not the Windows partition. Partition 2. Then you want to run startup repair three times with a reboot between each.


If that does not work:
  • You will need a Windows 7 repair disc or you can use the Advanced Boot Options to get to the System Recovery Options.

    Then try the steps in Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery. Note the warning:

    The instructions presented withing this tutorial must be followed correctly, or you can damage your Windows 7 installation even further. This tutorial is designed to help recover from a bad registry that is causing the startup repair loop. You should note that there may still be some issues remaining that cannot be fixed by manually restoring the registry.

Oh Sorry. I made on small mistake. You need to active System Reserved, not OS partition. Only what you need to edit in code is select partition 3 to select partition 2.

Then do what writhziden said.

The suggestions given by myself, Jacee, and Trinity were provided in the tutorial you were given earlier in this thread: Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

Did you follow those instructions exactly? If you do not follow the instructions in that tutorial step by step, then you will not be able to fix the problem.

The startup repair loop link I gave is new information, and up to you whether you want to proceed with it after following gregrocker's tutorial.

OK so i use Kaspersky Rescue Disk as on the troubleshooting thread. But its asking me which operative system it will scan on. Should i say "Windows Setup" or "Windows 7 Home Premium (restored)"

You should just scan the whole system as in this guide: How to start scan for viruses using Kaspersky Rescue Disk?

Look at the tutorial. When i click start update it says "Malfunction <1 minute ago, the update source cannot be found" is that ok can i just start the scan? Is Start Update important?
