You could use a windows installation DVD or USB . You could also use the F8 key until you see Repair Your Computer in the Advanced Boot Options .

VistaKing: I tried f8 repeatedly immediately after bios and I still got Windows Boot Manager error screen. I can get to the Recovery command promt with my Windows 7 installation usb in Recovery Options. Can I plug in both usb's, the tool you just provided and the install usb with the command prompt on it, boot to install usb, open command prompt, then run the file from the recovery drive? Are there commands that allow you to scan the number of disks (including external drives) to find the letter of the Recovery drive? If so do you know what they are. I think thats the only way I can start the Recovery tool from the command prompt.

If you can get to the Command line in System Recovery Options why can't you run System Restore from the Options list?

gregrocker: I can get to the Recovery Options but System Restore doesnt work because it says my OS is not showing up in the list, and Startup Repair says it cannot save startup settings. I continued 3x and restarted in between, as you suggested but I still cant get past the Windows Boot Manager screen(immediately after BIOS screen) when I boot from HDD. The only one I think left to focus on is the ol' command prompt with its wonderful tricks, and hope it works.

You don't need two flash Drives . Just download the tool to the USB that has the Windows installation files . Put the frst64.exe file inside the root of the USB drive . Meaning don't put it inside a folder . Plug the installation USB drive to the problematic PC and boot to the USB drive . When you get to the screen that has the Install Now button click on Repair Your Computer on the lower left hand side . Then click on Next then choose Command Prompt inside System Recovery .

To find the drive letter of the USB drive input the commands one by one and press <ENTER> after each

Diskpart


list volume


Once you have the drive letter type this command to exit Diskpart

exit
press <ENTER> it will say Exiting DiskPart . . .

Then type in the drive letter and :\frst64.exe press <Enter>

I must have missed where you reported back the System Restore attempt.

Did you actually try System Restore or just give up when no install shows up? Whether an install shows up in the list shouldn't affect its ability to run. Try again. Try all Restore Points.

If it fails then you can sometimes force the install to show up in Repair utility by running from CMD
Bootrec.exe /fixboot
Bootrec.exe /fixmbr

Try the rest of the steps in Fix Unbootable Win7

You've wasted an entire day ignoring the one step which is the first thing that shoudl be tried when Windows Updates go bad!
gregrocker: You may be tired of this issue, but trust me, not as much as me.
Sorry if I never directly answered the System Restore question.
That was the reason I made the installation usb is so I could try and recover the system through System Restore or Repair the Startup....Both options failed. I also took your suggestion of 3x and restarts in between. Again System Restore wont work. as I mentioned I tried steps 1-6 of your guide on my own before asking for assistance from the wonderful Guru's at SevenForums. I am a tiny bit computer literate.
