Windows 7: Windows 7 won't start and f8 boot options do nothing

06 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 7 home 32
yes, same here

I've tried to get the Win 7 dvd to boot and pause at the system repair pages as it used to do, but not for days.

Every attempt to do the above boots, skips quickly into Windows Loading Files, and then Starting Windows (without the colors streaming up on the page middle) and then freezes. Typing f8 does the same as for Ccbsball90, and then likewise freezes machine.

I've tried the Linux based EasyBCD and other similar rescue disks, but it doesn't matter as long as the Win 7 DVD keeps doing its wrong things.
