Windows 7: Auto repair fails to correct no CBS.log created

Auto repair fails to correct no CBS.log created

This maching was turned off and unplugged while owner went on vacation.
On return it just goes to the auto repair parocess every power up.
Went to DOS prompt and the drive with windows on it was given the letter D, the system partition was given C.

I tried bootrec /rebuildbcd and /fixboot to no avail. Then I assigned the windows partition to C and the system partition to D and tried again to no avail.

I have removed this drive and scanned it on another PC as a secondary drive and found nothing other than cookies with Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware as well as nortons. I also looked for rootkit with TDSSkiller. After renaming cbs.log I looked in D;\windows\logs\cbs after doing a sfc /scannow process for the repair log and there was none created. I looked on the system boot drive "C" but of course there was no windows folder so I created a windows/logs/cbs folder to see it it might be created there, it wasn't.

This appears to not be due to a bug but maybe a shutdown while it was in hibernation or something like that.

Have you tried "advanced boot menu" and use "last known good configuration".

1st thing I tried, Also tried to go to a restore point but it said non were found. I was wondering if the drive letter thing might have screwed up the restore points as well.
