Do you have access to a Win 7 64bit system (your system specs say that you havea 64bit system)?

If you do, then make a system repair disc. That will make our life easier for fixing your system.

DISC - CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC
START | type System Repair | Enter key | Create Disc button

No, sorry. I only have one machine with Win 7 64. I am using XP Pro laptop to troubleshoot with you the Win 7 machine. I cannot boot, regular or Safe Mode. I have been working thru repair possibilities. Deleted and replaced BootCache, downloaded a hotfix from MS that I cannot figure how to use. It is a zip file.
So right now, all I can see is the Win7 Start-up repair.

Excellent.

What you can do is:

Boot from the win 7 dvd into a command prompt.

Once there, then copy or move your important data to one of your unused drives.
The reason here is that you will be performing some operations which may have bad sad effects.

We may get lucky and be able to do some of the normal startup repair operations with no loss but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

When you get to that command prompt, you will find that your disks have other letters than the ones normally shown by Win 7. That's oK but you need to be forewarned.

You will be running a Windows Pre-execution Environment from a ram drive which has been assigned the drive letter X:

After you get to that command prompt, you can remove your Win 7 DVD. Everything needed is already in ram.

The quick brute-force way to determine the new drive letters is simply to go down the alphabet, skipping letters A and B.

For example:
C: to change to drive C
DIR to list the contents of C

Just keep going thru the letters till you locate all your disks.

Move everything dear to you from to an unused drive.

To move, you will use the XCOPY command.

Let's say that you want to move everything from D to G

XCOPY D:\ G:\ /E /C /I /H

COMMAND PROMPT - GO TO A COMMAND PROMPT USING YOUR WIN 7 DVD
■Boot up from your Windows 7 DVD.
■At the first dialog window, press SHIFT + F10 key combo
■You will have a X:> command prompt
X: is a ram drive created by Windows 7.

After that I need you to disconnect all drives except for your drive that is causing problems, your main drive.

Oh heck.

I just noticed that your Disk 0 is a Dynamic drive.

What Operating System do you have installed on which drives?

Why is that a Dynamic drive?

Hold off, if it is not too late on doing anything more until I get the answers to these questions.

copying to backup in progress. looks like it might take a while. Don't know about Dynamic. XP is on what is now D: partition, Win 7 is on c: partition, the second partition on the drive. I am available until I crash & burn tonight, what is your schedule?
