Windows 7: Windows 7 crashes on startup. Can't restore, repair or repair install

11 Oct 2015   #31

Windows 7

Hello I am having the exact same problem here and currently trying to type the script into the command prompt from my Asus BIOs but don't know how to open the command prompt. Nor does it give a safe mode option in the boot menu. Any help would be great.

Edit: To all having this error try running BIOS, navigate to advanced mode, advanced tab, open DATA Configuration, select IDE. This is the option that got me booted up past crash
