Did you uncheck the activate when online option when you skipped the enter key box?

How did you install 7, and where did you get the software?

What were the options you refer to as etc.?

Boot into the installer and select Repair my Computer.

See if it finds an installation to repair.

Run Startup repair repeatedly until it starts up - it might have more than one issue to fix.
