Windows 7: BSOD happens to quick, cant get recovery console

BSOD happens to quick, cant get recovery console

I wish I could give BSOD info, the screen flashes it to quick and restarts.

Here's what happened to get me here, the other night I was working on an invoices (almost done after 2hrs) and windows decided to shutdown and auto-install updates. I was working on line and lost all invoice info, I cant tell you how angry I was at 1am..... I can tell you I thought hard about doing a rain dance on my laptop!
Sorry, back to the subject.

After it installed the updates it hung up on shutdown, I was a little impatient and need to start the invoice over so after 10min of it still being in the "windows is shutting down" screen I used the power button to help it along. Now when powered on it goes to the windows failed to start, using the recovery option (multiple times) it acts like it fixed the problem but nothing happens. It acts like I have installed new hardware in the recovery console but I haven't added anything, except for HP software for my new printer.
It used to (when starting windows normally) hang on the windows logo for a long time, flash a quick blue screen and automatically go to recovery console. I used ioio system mechanic disc to check the HD MBR and Partition and the drive came back fine, after I checked that I cant even get into the recover console anymore, I have tried it from the hard drive and Win 7disc. It loads files, black screen for 2min then the blue background screen pops up with no recovery window. After that theres no hard drive activity and the recovery window never appears.
So now I am in a pretty useless loop, if I start normally it loads for a minute then restarts back to windows error recovery, if I use repair it gets to repair background blue screen but no window opens for repair options.
I have seen a BOSD a couple times since this happened but they appear and disappears way to fast for me to see anything.
any help would be awesome, thanks.

ok, I took video with my Iphail... mean Iphone and after multiple attempts I was able to catch the BOSD. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME it flashes like 1/10 of a sec and restarts to the repair screen. Reair console will not load. I can pull the drive and put in a new 750gb drive I have, do a fresh install of windows and pull all my stuff off the old drive VIA a drive enclosure. I would rather not.
