Update - Trying to start windows, windows boot manager now gives corrupt file ksecdd.sys.
Looks like it may be time to reinstall.

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

Well it works, I can get back to my Windows system except when I restart again, the same problem occurs and I have to go through your process again.

Did I do something wrong or what?

I did your routine 3 times as every time I restart, the same problem occurs. I am now on my 4th attempt. What am I doing wrong or what is not being corrected?

Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Reboot Loop whats next

Hello, newbie here but I been reading the forum for some time. My Windows 7 Pro 64 is experiencing the Reboot Loop with the latest 14 patches that were released on 02/11/14. I managed to get up and running using a Win7 ISO on a USB thumb drive. Then reverting back to a Restore Point. But now Iím not sure how I can install these 14 patches without going back into the loop. Just looking for some help on what my next steps should be other than a OS reinstall.

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

OK,I went through that Recovery Loop many, many times but it could never co0mpletely get rid of the problem.
Then I wen through the Startup Repair 3 times procedure. I did that for 3 times. Nothing
So then I decided to have the computer run all night with the Looping error saying it was "configuring My PC" and when I woke up in the morning, there it was, all gone, the PC was fixed.

So what do I attribute that to? Was Windows 7 actually trying to configure my PC with the updates and I wouldn't let it do it's job? I don't know but it seems when I let it run it's course, it got fixed.

Thanks for all the help anyway, it was quite an experience.

Ciao, Jim

Please help me! I can't find Program Files, in any of my drives!

hi guys, I really need help, I've followed the instructions in using the command prompt, but I just can't find the drive with the Program Files, Users Etc2. So I'm stuck at the first part of it!

I've tried using command prompt through the repair startup, and the command prompt with Safe mode. I've even tried to look for the files in drives E and F.

I'm not a tech savvy guy, and I really need help.

Hello Bryan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Your screenshot isn't a command prompt at boot as in the tutorial.

From your screenshot C: is the correct drive letter, but you were just looking in the "C:\Users\Christopher" folder instead of just C:.

If you have "C:\Users\Christopher" in the prompt, type:

CD\ (press Enter)

If you have some other drive letter, then type:

C: (press Enter)

Hope this helps,
