Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start - ISO provided here with tool to burn to DVD, exact steps for confirming partition marked Active, running Startup Repairs if needed, everything else that can be done to start Win7.

Once it's started if Disk Check will not run on the external, install and run Partition Wizard Check File System and Partition Wizard Partition surface test.

PW CD can also be used to Mark Partition Active, however you need the installed version to Check File System.

would anyone, by chance, know how to burn the .iso file to a USB? i tried looking up solutions, however a lot of them have me using the terminal text box (which i'm assuming is like the cmd prompt) and I don't feel comfortable using it. if not, i will just use a cd. i just don't have one here right now.

Had you bothered to look at the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot - Windows 7 Help Forums you would have seen the tool for this in Step 11.

On a Mac?

I think you need to use Boot Camp Assistant

Also, since I'm here, I have another question. The file says I will be needing about 500 mib of space. If I have a 8gb thumb drive, will that be enough space? Please excuse me if that is a stupid question.
500mb doesn't sound like windows install media, or winpe based repair cd. Could be a linux based iso for repairing windows?

No need to be rude. I appreciate the help you've given, thank you.

Yeah, I have boot camp open, thanks! I'm not sure what it is...would that still fix the start up error if its linux? I don't want to have to go through all this trouble downloading the file if it's not going to work. (it's still downloading, my internet sucks)

This would all be easier on a Windows PC. Got any friends near by?
