Windows 7: Need help fixing Windows 7 Ultimate

Need help fixing Windows 7 Ultimate

I have a desktop Intel I7 with 16 GB ram with Windows 7 Ultimate. Windows take longer to start, and does not show the "starting windows" logo. Instead, it shows the two attached black screen pictures. I tried a few things to fix it; using the repair disk, windows restore, the installation disk, and finally installing Service Pack 2. I was able to reduce the delay from 10 min. to 5 min. but the black screen stills there. Previously I have dual booting with Windows 2016 server, and was able to delete the entry in msconfig, and delete/format that partition. I do not want to have fresh Windows installation. Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciate,

Windows 7 Professional, SP1, x86

Another Floridian here..... I had Win-7 Ultimate for several years and then one day it would take over a minute just to go on-line. Everything else seemed to work, but waiting for it to go on-line was more aggravation than I wanted to put up with.

So I just backed up all my data files, to an external drive, and installed Win-7, Pro, x86 from an ISO I got on-line.

I did the clean install to a new SSD and kept the old one for any files I might have missed in the data backup.

Everything is working fine today with the new Win-7, Pro install. I suggest you put all your fears aside and do a clean install.

Happy Holidays!

Can you boot into Advanced Boot Options, and select Last Known Good Configuration?

Here is how, when using a dual boot computer:

A clean boot is a troubleshooting technique that allows you to get the computer up and running so that you can perform diagnostic tests to determine which elements of the normal boot process are causing problems.

Try a Repair Install also referred to as an In Place Upgrade

As you can get into Windows:
- Do a check disk. Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
chkdsk C: /f
It will say your disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next boot = yes.
Pay attention on the results, specially bad clusters, bad blocks or bad sectors.

If your disk is healthy, do a Repair-Install
It will reinstall windows to fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, and system drivers.
For the updates, as an alternative to WU, my suggestion is to set Services - Windows Update - Manual and on WU page set it to Never check.
Then run UpdatePack7R2
Simplix is a single file (750MB) that contain all updates since Win 7 released up to date. It has all security and non security updates without the trash (telemetry and tracking). Very good.

Thanks SIW2.
Instead of a patch, why the author doesn't point the link to the UpdatePack7R2-19.11.18.exe?
