Windows 7: Stuck in Start up Repair

The in place Upgrade is an inferior install which can quite easily fail without being recoverable.

The best way to Upgrade is to boot from the Win7 DVD, choose Custom install and Advanced Drive tools to format the drive before install.

Of course, you have to reinstall your programs, settings and files, but if moving into the best OS ever isn't a good enough occasion to do this - to get the cleanest possible install - then when is?

You should have a drivers/apps CD there to get any missing drivers or apps when you are installed, check the Device Manager for any missing after you get your first Windows Update. Others are available on the Support Downloads webpage for your computer model. Adobe reader/flash and Java runtime are downloaded at their sites.
