Windows 7: Windows 7 startup & repair loop - different to previous posts

Windows 7 startup & repair loop - different to previous posts


I get the following on boot up ...

Launch startup repair (recommended)
start windows normally

Selecting either options causes it to enter an infinite loop

The last thing I did while it was working was to install a HP printer, it then said restart and since then I have not been able to get pass the Launch startup repair (recommended)
start windows normally


I have tried all the options under F8 on boot, but happy to try any suggestions as I could be completely wrong or may have overlooked something.

Has anyone experienced this or know how to fix it please?
PS I have read the threads on this forum but can not seem to get it started using the suggestions.

Thanks in advance

Hello, thanks for your quick response. No I can't get to safe mode but through a drivers and utilities cd disk, which I have, i can boot from the CD via the f12 command then get to a DOS prompt, does this help?
