Windows 7: Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

06 Aug 2015   #460

Windows 7 Pro x64 (Upgrade, Clean Install)

Reporting back, as promised. Have new 1TB installed ($39 sale at MicroCenter!, was cheaper than OEM I usually buy).

Finally got everything reloaded and is working great! Thanks, again, for responding, Brink. (Won't let me Rep because said I need to spread it around, but you are the one who usually helps me.)

Windows 7 64 bits

Hello !

I was locked in this boot loop on windows 8.

I upgraded to windows 10 and I still have the loop problem.

What is the problem ? I was thinking that upgrading to windows 10 would treat the problem, but no, so I guess it's not a driver problem ?

Thank you for your help.

Windows 7 home 64

After I click step 5, there is no command prompt option in step 6. Only shows 2 recovery options: Startup Repair and Dell DataSafe Restore.
