hmm, after this sfc /scannow completes, I'll try running recdisk.exe from the command prompt, and maybe be able to kick off that recovery disk process, and then run the SFC from there?

NO.

Follow Greg's advice to the letter.

Following Greg's advice your problem will be solved. Any other approaches and success is very questionable.

I guess you cant run recdisk.exe from the safe mode command prompt, but then I realized, the laptop I'm on is Windows 7, so I'm creating the disk from here and I'll then try SFC from the repair disk environment. Sorry, I hadn't seen your post about the recovery console instructions yet when I posted that one. I appreciate the help so far. Thanks!

Well, I'm not sure which running of sfc /scannow did it, every single time, I got the result either: "Found some files to repair, please reboot to repair them" or "SFC cant run right now because there are file restorations pending" neither of which I figured actually fixed anything, and I seemed like I was at a brick wall. I rebooted back to normal 7, and it loaded my desktop right up. Now creating restore points, creating another set of repair disks, and running another sfc /scannow. If all that goes well, I'll reconnect the peripherals and keep my fingers crossed!

Thanks again for the help, sorry I mangled your instructions, but you undoubtedly pointed me in the right direction to get this thing fixed, my saviours!

Actually, what you reported is what I expected, unless you were in real deep water.

I strongly suspect that when you reconnect everything, that everything will work.

So far so good. Should I create the full system image files, or is a repair disc and restore points probably sufficient?

A system restore will restore registry and Win 7 settings, but it will not reinstall any apps you installed or save any documents you genterated.

Yes, one needs a system repair disk.
Yes, one needs system restore points,
Yes, one needs an image backup using Win 7 Backup and Restore.

When you get ready to perform the image backup, let me know and I'll give you instructions which will cover what you need and not the entire gamut of possiblities.

Well, I just finished running yet another sfc /scannow from normal windows 7, and it reported similar results "found files to be repaired upon reboot" and then when I rebooted, it did a few "configuring windows"/"applying updates" screens, and let me back on. Everything seems to be running how it should.

I think I'll call it a night for now though, and tackle the image creation tomorrow. I'll check back here if I ever need any Windows 7 Help. Thanks again!

glad to have been of assistance. Sleep is good. I should do the same.
