Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times


I've added the text below as the second paragraph to explain further, I feel it needed it, any comments?

There is another situation that is common now, when Windows 7 is installed to an un-partitioned or "unallocated space" on a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) it creates one partition (the first) labeled "System Reserved" and a second partition that Windows 7 installs to, both "Primary" partitions; the "System Reserved" partitions is where the boot files are created and has a link to the recovery options console built into Windows 7, it serves a very useful purpose but there may be times when removing or repairing the "System Reserved" partition becomes necessary.

Wow. Now I can just line up the tutorials, nothing much left to type with all the great Install Tutorials, or even the nagging need to underline run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times.

If they ask back why 3 times, we can just post the tutorial again. Next we need a tutorial on how to read the tutorials up to 2 separate times.
