Windows 7: Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

This thread is a godsend! My computer hasn't been able to boot for the past 5 days and I've scoured the Internet looking for a solution, but to no avail. Then I found this thread. Honestly, this has been the hardest computer repairing I have done. I've tried startup repair, chkdsk, SFC, even dism. This worked like a charm! Thank you for saving me a painful reinstallation of Windows!

I tried the instructions in the tutorial. When i did step 10, each of the files were listed along with a duplicate-log, ie Security-log, showing 12 files and 6 directories. I continued with the next two steps. Many files were copied. On step 13 it showed 0 files and 3 directories listed as "." ".." and "mybackup". Are there any other solutions to this problem as I work from home and need the computer running?

So I did what you asked but It's not booting up , the only thing I did different was name MD mybackup to backup, what should I do, should I do the process all over? Well I tried to do it all over but no result.

As you can see the image below I have a lot of back ups, now my question would be is how would you delete them as I am going to start the process all over. If you are wondering why I have so many copies its because I wanted to see if I try again to see if it works.

Hello Raiden,

No need to delete the backup. You will be prompted at steps 12 and 14 to override the current backup with the new one.

That or start over if you like. Either way will work without having to delete the backup you already created.

Brink I already tried that before , the only thing I did different was just change the backup folder name to whatever I want, should I try again?
