Help with BOOT UP please.

Hi, I dont know if I should post my problem here, if I am in the wrong spot maybe someone will direct me to the right spot,anyway long story short the other day I could not get into windows ,I tried everything and in the end I stuck my windows cd in to see if it would fix it and lo and behold it did in a few mins ,prob was that it lost the default boot os anyway its fixed now but my os's are now called windows 7 and vista RECOVERED, ok I can live with that, but since the fix it is taking forever to boot into either system, so I ticked the box in the msconfig section[OS BOOT INFORMATION] to see what was happening, and after it loads the drivers it just seems to sit there for ages and then at the last min before it goes into windows screen I see a few lines like[ file system clean], as if it had being checking ALL my discs first before boot, might there be a TUT on how to stop what ever its doing that I can't find and if so if someone could show me the way that would be great THANKS.

Hi,

Looks like startup repair fixed the bcd entries, but did not fix the initial problem that caused the boot failure.

First you might try running checkdisk to see if that finds/fixes any corrupt sectors.

Hope it helps
