Windows 7: Issue with Startup Recovery (urgent)

01 Dec 2013   #1

Window 7 64 bit
Issue with Startup Recovery (urgent)

Hi all,
Today i faced an issue with my computer thus i did an force shut down and my computer
The next moment, i reboot my computer and was given a choice to start in safe mode / normally.

However i didnt select any of the 2 option thus was redirected to the startup recovery.
From there i am unable to recover anything
Forced shutting down again doesnt get me anywhere.

I cant do a system restore as it is corrupted or something.
Lost my CD/CD key so i cant do a clean reformat of my computer

Tried pressing F8 before the computer was booting, it stay at a certain point and not loading anything thus unable to get into safe mode.

Tried using command prompt to copy the system32 config as well, that doesnt work me as well.

Now it is forever lopping back to startup recovery.

Now i am lost on what can i do to recover my desktop

Lost my CD/CD key so i cant do a clean reformat of my computer=> Sorry to say... but that's your own problem. Did you lose the sticker with product number (COA sticker)? Or is it unreadable?

Tried using command prompt to copy the system32 config as well, that doesnt work me as well.=>How did you enter command prompt if win7 isn't working whatsoever and recovery environment doesn't work?!
