Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit
 
 

Its a normal CD i got with Windows 7 recovery disk.
The BIOS is set to boot with optical disk and successfully boots from CD.
The CD is new any no issue with it.
What are ways to somehow go to command prompt?

Before you get to the 'Windows logo screen" press F8 to enter the special options menu, or whatever it is called... There you could start windows in safemode with command prompt, or select 'repair the computer' if you have it listed. With that you will get to the startup repair, after it runs, it should show you a selection menu where you can run command prompt only. I've been there a week ago, but this is just an idea.

Am not getting above screen with 'Install Now' button (i got it once with which i formatted the drive for clean install)
But the sequence of screen i am getting is:
while booting from Windows 7 repair CD and selecting F8 and selecting 'Safe mode with Command prompt', it takes to 'Starting windows', and in 2-3 minutes, it takes to BLACK blank screen with mouse pointer only and no activity on it.
Currently am looking for various ways to go to command prompt and above way is not working !
Can you please suggest any other way to go to command prompt?
Hope i was clear

Thanks

You had problems with Windows Update, correct?

The solution for this is almost always to run System Restore,
if necessary from the Repair CD. But first check to see if you have System Recovery Options on the F8 Advanced Boot Options.

If not make a Repair CD as follows: System Repair Disc - Create

Boot the Repair CD: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

Let is search for and find an installation. If it offers a Repair, go ahead and accept it. If not, click through to s to run System Restore to restore before the Updates which caused the problem.

If this fails, run Startup Repair repeatedly.

You now have tutorial on how to do every single step above. If you have any questions, ask back.

theog:
The system is booting from CD-ROM successfully and does asks to 'Press any key...'.

gregrocker:
The primary drive is blank now.
The 'System Recovery Option' screen does not come. It comes after screen with 'Install Now' button, which doesnot come either.
Current sequence is:
-Press any key to boot from DVD
-Windows is loading files
-Starting windows
-BLACK blank screen with mouse pointer

Hope i am clear.
Please provide options on how to go to command prompt.
