Create a system repair disk on that machine. System Repair Disc - Create

Boot the sick machine from that dvd. Does it see the win7 install? Can you see the recovery options like startup repair, system restore, command prompt?

enter command prompt:

Code:
bcdedit /set  {default}  recoveryenabled   no
This disables automatic recovery to startup repair in case of errors. It does it for the default OS (you only have 1).

Now try to boot from harddisk and tell me what happens. look carefully for errors and everything that happens!

To revert back to how it was:
Code:
bcdedit /set  {default}  recoveryenabled   yes

Still recoveryenabled=no

Try minimal boot. (just boot normally)
Code:
bcdedit/set  {default}  safeboot  Minimal
or minimal with network. (just boot normally)
Code:
bcdedit/set  {default}  safeboot  Network
revert back to normal as it was by deleting safeboot value
Code:
 
bcdedit/deletevalue  {default}  safeboot

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose language settings, and then click "Next".
3. Click "Repair your computer".
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
File: \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\MpFilter.sys
Status: 0xc0000098
Info: Windows failerd to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt.

Code:
c:
cd  \windows\system32\drivers
ren  MpFilter.sys  MpFilter-test.sys
now set recoveryenabled to no again. So you get the mpfilter.sys error message. It should be gone now. What happens when booting?
