Windows 7: failure to configure windows reverting changes

failure to configure windows reverting changes

Hi I recently shutdown my computer after it was stuck on preparing to configure windows when it was shutting down. I restarted my laptop and now I get the message saying failure to configure windows reverting changes, which has been ikn the screen for about 2 hours now. I tried to do system repair and it found nothing. There are also no available system restore points.

I also tried booting in safe mode and it still shows the failure to configure windows message.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Try booting to Last Known Good Configuration (in the advanced boot menu) and see if that gets you back up and running.

I have an xubuntu 12.10 CD,can I create a win 7 installation USB from the xubuntu live CD, then use the win 7 USB to repair windows?

It's easier to do it from Windows - although you could use any burning tool to create the DVD from a downloaded ISO. There's a specific Windows tool for converting the ISO to a bootable USB stick, but I don't know how to do it from Linux
