Windows 7: First BSOD, after USB booth and startup repair 'StratupRepairOffline'

First BSOD, after USB booth and startup repair 'StratupRepairOffline'

He everyone,

My laptop (windows 7 on Dell XPS) decided to stop working today. When I was doing a lot of tasks at the same time it started to hang and I decided to reboot it by holding the on/off button. When it turned back on there were only two options: boot normal or repair boot. The normal booth gave a BSOD with 'unmountable_boot_volume' and the repair boot gave a desktop screen with only a moving mouse and no other options (even after waiting a number of hours). After some googling I decided to boot the computer from a USB with the Windows Repair CD mounted on it, since I did not have the CD itself. That finally worked and I was able to start the ' Startup Repair'. This gave the following problem:

Problem signature:
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: ExternalMedia
Problem Signature 06: 1
Problem Signature 07: NoOsInstalled
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 1033

I have no idea what to do next. I really hope someone can help me out. It is really important for me to be able to keep my files that are on that laptop.

You need either the Windows installer disc or the repair disc. If you dont have any, you may try to make one repair disc using a computer running the same version of windows.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will try to get my hands on a repair disk, but I was wondering how that will be different from what I did with my USB. I was able to mount the repair disk to a USB and boot it from my computer. The problems started when the repair program itself was running...
