System Recovery Options

Read through this. Go to Method 2 Step 6. Do you have one of these on your hard drive?
System Restore
System Image Recovery

If so Go back to Step 1 in Method 2 and give it a try.
Try both if one doesn't work.

If you already tried this I missed it in the thread.

Along with what others have said,
Did you try using the the "Last Know Good Configuration" command?

Hit F8 when booting, and try that, Also try Safe Mode..

Unfortunately, both the "Last Know Good Configuration" and Safe Mode choices lead me to Startup Repair...

Why is Windows unable to find WHAT'S wrong? because the Startup Repair does not find a single error.

Precisely, this is the Sistem Repair "Root cause found:" "Boot status indicates that the OS booted succesfully."

One of these choices or a clean install.
You either have System Restore points that work or not. This may work.
You have a System Image or not. This should work if you have one.

No System Restore points work, and I don't have a System Image.

I have no other options but the clean install.

Sorry

you know, if you would have just reinstalled windows last night, your other computer would already be working.

The guys are right, most probability is that you are getting a massive system file corruption everytime you boot... maybe the MBR is corrupted and the ntfs file system will not work properly... in that cases, is very limited what windows repair will do for you, just because it only restores files, configurations or regitry entries... unless you maybe try to repair your MBR and see if that gets your system to boot...

Anyway, after all this, maybe critical stuff now is corrupted in such a way that you will propebly need to do a clean install anyway, for example, if you manage (in some miraclous way) to boot, the system will be unstable and give you errors from time to time...

In short... maybe if you repair the MBR, the system repair will buzz away, try to do that, and then a chkdsk, if the problem persists, you will need to reinstall your windows. Don't worry for the price, anyway you paid for the licence, just ask for reactivation by phone and you are set up! Remember that computing and OSes are suceptible of failures, and sometmes, you need to reinstall if you want your system working properly... In years in this business, I know what I'm telling you

I hope you can fix your problem, anyway, feel free to post if you need something else.

See ya!!!

Forgive me for this, if you feel it is too obvious!
Have you tried booting into the menu options (F8, whilst booting) and merely selecting Start normally from the options. It has often been enough for me.
