Windows 7: Windows won't fully start

Windows 7 Ultimate x32 With Sp1 + Vista Ultimate x32 with Sp1 & Sp2 !!

Hi cedar,
1. All is well with the printer & other devices now. Maintain the status.
(a) Cheers. That's what we were looking for from the recovery partition! Go for 'Reinstall Windows' option. It would not be like a normal install/reinstall & would be more of a restore where all of the important settings will be chosen for itself. Just go with the default settings & it will take care of.
(b) For understanding the process & make out/avoiding any mistakes, just be ready with a notebook & pen. Wherever you have a doubt or make an input, make a note of it. It would be always good if you can make a video ( Last time your video was upside down! ).
3.Seniors/Pros say/recommend to make Windows Updates as soon as you are done. ( But i won't! I would make them only, once i have made a stable system & imaged it )

I would expect that your first contact with internet should be for installing/activating antivirus program & that too as soon as possible! As i said its not a clean install, so it may be that it includes a free 30/60 days trial of a security suite/program. You have to decide whether you want to enjoy the free trial. To enjoy free trial, you may need to connect to internet to activate the free trial. It depends.

If you don't want to enjoy the free trial, you will need to remove it properly. The removal process would depend upon the security suite installed. Then install the one you want.

I believe you should use/access only fully secure/scanned external media before that.

As for external devices, it would be better to make sure that your basic devices are installed & working properly. Then connect to internet & connect/insert them one by one.

So, for now proceed with the 'Reinstall Windows' option, follow the on screen instructions carefully & report once the process is finished.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Edit : Better concentrate on the process than making video. Still better don't make any video Just note down the doubts & inputs!

Windows 7 Pro x64

Well I did the reinstall windows.
Chose not to do updates.
Finished and it gave me the option to restore my files (snap below).
Just when I was going to select restore my files it crashed again just like it has always been doing.
When it restarted I didn't see the "restore files" option box reappear.
And it keeps crashing.
I just shut it off.

So it appears the reinstall was not what the problem/solution was and maybe I won't be able to restore my old files now.

Hi cedar,
1. I would have said that don't try to restore/access/connect to any type of backups/datas/old things unless you have shielded your pc with Antivirus & Windows Updates. They may have infections. Then you have to scan them & if they are clear, you can use them. Also if you try to restore User Data, etc., it may always put you again in trouble as it is from a corrupted installation. Use only the files of your interests & not the system files, application settings,etc. Anyway, If you backed up the data, you can restore them later.
2. Edit Later!

Thanks & Regards. ...
