SECURITY - 24576
SOFTWARE - 71118848

Ignoring this and pushing on did not get my computer out of the startup repair loop. :[ What might be the problem, here? And how might I fix it?
Hi Tranquillus,
I'm afraid I'm not an expert in this problem and I suspect I may have got lucky with the fix, but the numbers are only guides, my numbers were not even close either, and you might have better luck with a different cloning program or try re-cloning your drive, failing that you will probably have to do a fresh install.
Good luck

Hello ZKhan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have used the correct drive letter for your system drive in steps 8-10, then see if using step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below to run the defrag command below for the same drive letter may help. Substitute C in the command below for your drive letter.

defrag C: /R

Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use

Afterwards, try again.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

No problem. Defragging will not cause you to lose your files.
