Windows 7: Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

W7 Pro 64bit

Brink, you are a hero beyond measure.

Today I created an account just to give you the greatest of thanks! For the last half decade i've been using a Mac as my main machine and have it setup to stop this kind of fuss down to a Tee.

I've been keeping up with all windows related things however as I use it at work and so do all of my tech friends. At some point I knew that i was going to build something mean to produce music on/game on etc. That happened this September and I'd been collecting software for it for the previous 12 months. Suffice to say it got built within a week and I poured literally a hundred hours into the software build, tweaking everything to my preferences and getting it setup perfectly to match the useability of my Mac.

Two weeks later, just as I was getting round to my first backup, it died inexplicably (I thought it was a beta version of Firefox that did it but have no way of confirming this). After a further two weeks of reading every night trying to fix it I got nowhere, none of my friends had any helpful suggestions and I just wanted to cry. Fast forward two months and my grands worth of rig has been sitting in the corner collecting dust because I couldn't face the rebuild.

Tonight I thought I would have one last google and this thread popped up, I followed your instructions to the letter thinking that it wouldn't work and there it was, the shiny LogIn screen I have so longed for. I nearly cried. I love you.

Hello Acronis True Image. Let's do this.

Hello. I have followed every step up until when you said if any are 0 than do not proceed, well all of mine were 0, do you have any suggestions on what I could do next? Thankyou

Awesome job. Worked great. The comment above about disabling restore was not an option for mine. I could get into DIR's but couldnt go any further. Thanks again!

windows 7
stuck in step 12

All well until step 12 where after typing: <copy *.* mybackup> it doesn't go any further than listing BCD-Template and components. The other ítems do not appear and I cannot type anything else. Any suggestions?

windows 7 64 bit home premium

ive had the same problem,

went through the whole walkthrough with no problems but didnt resolve anything.

the sizes of the files were different as others had mentioned, i had previously identified tcpip.sys as a problem file but havent been able to boot for a couple of weeks now, i dont know how to replace any corrupt files.

any suggestions as to what my next appoach should be?

startup repair hasnt helped at all, but did mention
problem signature 01: 6.1.7600.1638

and several other things

not sure if that helps, any thoughts appreciated, i suspect a virus as i was using COMODO which i didnt have too much faith in!

Do you have a copy of your IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS? If you do, then I'll suggest a re-installation of Windows 7 . What brand do you have (Dell, HP, Sony VAIO)? Did you create the DVDs that the system suggested in case you had this possible imbroglio? Those DVDs will set your PC to Factory New, as it came when you first bought it.

windows 7 64 bit home premium

I don't have a copy of the license key, so can't reinstall windows. It's a dell, I have everything I need off it but just have no way of activating it, came preloaded on the laptop with no stickers or anything with the key on. Looking for a fix as having to pay for another copy of windows isn't an option for me.
