Hello Alex1989.

Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Last known Good Configuration (advanced). It should work.

If still not, run Startup Repair for three separate times, with restarts after every single run.
Startup Repair: Run three separate times.

Let us know the results.

I followed all the steps, the problem is not solved. I will say this: even after removing the drivers videocard ATI reboot is successful. Put the new driver for the video card-error still appears. Maybe something is conflicting, the incompatibility of some sort?
