Windows 7: Windows 7 crashed and stuck in Windows recovery loop

23 Jun 2014   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Windows 7 crashed and stuck in Windows recovery loop

The problem started with CD/DVD not being found by the device manager as a drive and Windows updates not installing. Located the device in Bios and made sure everything there was at factory settings.
When I rebooted, it goes to Windows Error Recovery screen, but no matter what I select it goes back to the same screen.
I have the Windows & Pro disk that comes with a refurbished computer. But when I try running it the drive stops and everything just sits.
The last driver to load in any setting is \Windows\System32\Drivers\aswRvrt.sys

Try a new ISO for your licensed version from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 written to bootable flash stick, unplug the DVD drive, boot stick by name via on the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key to System Recovery Options to run a few Startup Repairs. If this fails try System Restore from Options List.

If this fails work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.
