Windows 7: Start up repair problem in Win 7 x64

19 Dec 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I booted to win 7 DVD in "System recovery options", I clicked on "startup repairs" but it said: "This version of system recovery option is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair"

It's the DVD that I installed my Win 7 x64 from it,

I tried to boot in Safe Mode, but on "classPNP.sys" it remains...

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

It would seem then that Windows is looking for a Dell recovery disc or partition.

If yoy clean installed Windows, chances are you've wiped the recovery partition.

Did you ceate a set of Dell recovery discs at any time? If so, try using them.

Try tapping F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options.

Is there a Repair My Computer choice? If so, boot into System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair repeatedly no matter what it reports, at least 3 separate times.

If no Repair choice, reset your BIOS to factory defaults, enter BIOS setup to set HD to boot first, then use the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key to trigger DVD.

Where did you get Win7? If you burned DVD yourself, confirm ISO integrity or download another, burn DVD using IMgBurn at 4x speed, or write to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown, boot using one-time BIOS boot menu key under USB, Removable or HD's.

If Startup Repair fails to find the problem, try System Restore from the Options list.

Infection may be blocking repairs. Download, burn to CD or write to flash stick Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper, boot it to run a Full scan, repeatedly if it finds infection, until it is completely clean.

Then run Startup Repair again 3 separate times no matter what it reports.

Next access a Command Line from Recovery options list, run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot. If it repairs System files, it may need to be run more than once then run Startup Repair again.

Next boot into free Partition Wizard bootable CD. Make sure Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved (preferred) partition are marked Active. Then click on HD to highlight it, from Disk tab run Rebuild MBR, Apply. If this fails on System Reserved partition, change Active flag to Win7 partition, click OK, then run Rebuild MBR again, Apply. If Win7 doesn't start and you marked or changed Active flag, try Startup Repairs again now.

You can copy out your files using System Recovery Options using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console. Read my comment at the end of the comments section on how to do this from options accessed via F8. You can also use Paragon Rescue CD freeware to rescue files.

Then boot Win7 DVD, follow these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I finally solved the problem!:)
with thanks to "gregrocker" , but I found another solution:

I searched the Net and found a windows 7 x64 startup repair iso, I downloaded it, burned it in a CD and then:
I booted my laptop with this disk,
Then I used startup repair and without any error it fixed the problem
after restarting my laptop, windows 7 booted completely and I logged in!

I think my installation DVD was incompatible for startup repair and I don't know why.
I just installed my Win 7 x64 from this DVD disk.

Thanks all.

Is this a 64 bit Win7 installation DVD, or some type of Recovery DVD which came with the computer?

If you want you can post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk management drive map with listings, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, so we can make sure it's configured correctly.
