Endless Startup Repair Windows 7 Home x86 No Discs

I need help with repair. It's not a loop, it's just stuck at trying to fix a problem. It says its attempting repairs, but its been attempting for about 24 hours now. I have no idea what happened. It flashed BSOD for like a millisecond, then restarting, prompting me to start Repair, so I do, then it stays on the repair screen for...24 hrs...and its not doing an infinite loops. Please help me, I'd like to get back to playing my Minecraft.

try following the instructions in the following link:

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

Even though it says "loop"; still just try those steps anyway.

And in the end if it comes down to it you may very well have to do a complete clean install as that probably will be the only way to resolve this issue(s) in the end.

You had better get the installation media Windows 7 Direct Download Links, Official Disk Images from ...

You want the SP1 (u) media refresh version. x86 of course.

This can mean it's stuck in Disk Check because the HD died. Force reboot and boot into BIOS setup, check if the hard drive is registered anywhere under Storage, Hard Drives, or Boot order.

If not try reseating the drive in it's bay underneath to see if you can get it to register.

Otherwise work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
which try everything possible to start it leading up to if necessary rescuiing any files to do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7
