Windows 7: Startup Repair to infinite reboot loops, Repair errors 0x5 & 0x490

12 May 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hey there. Been gone for the weekend.

Anyways, I've come to unfortunately report that neither partition's MBR + triple Startup Repair process has fixed the problem.

Just wondering if there's any other things I can try, or some other specific method I can use to pin down the cause of these particular error codes. It's a bit disappointing to have to rely on an automated process which says straight up, I'll fix these problems, then activates itself again and again, repeating the same thing.


Also, thanks for sticking with this. Most persistent help I've had with computer troubles.
