Windows 7: Windows Startup Repair not working can Not boot Windows 7

Windows Startup Repair not working can Not boot Windows 7

Ok, I will try to get it all in one shot.

I did a standard shut down of my Dell Latitude E6500 this morning and it went fine. When I went to fire it back up I got a bar across the bottom that says "Windows is loading files" then the Startup Repair comes up and says "Startup repair is checking for problems" after 20 seconds it comes up with "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically" and wants me to send the following info to windows.

Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: -1
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 13
Problem Signature 07: CorruptRegistry
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 1033

I went to the Advanced recovery options menu and got a command prompt to try and run a system scan and I get the message that says a system restore is already in progress that requires a reboot. I reboot and the whole thing starts over.

I cannot start in SafeMode with out the same situation

Things I've noticed My windows directory is no longer a C:\ Drive but an X:\ Drive
System restore does not work because it says that I must "Enable System Protection on this drive" to run it on the C:\

I'm not a programmer but I rely on this laptop to make a living and it's fairly new. Any and all help is very much appreciated. I will be sitting here waiting....

With the registry being corrupt, you're really limited on options. The only solutions I have ever seen were to:

1. Hit F8 and try "last known good config"
2. Launch Startup Repair, open a command prompt window and run "chkdsk /r"
3. Re-install Windows.
