Windows 7: Ramdisk Device Options boot loop?

Ramdisk Device Options boot loop?

Hi All,I just attempted to capture a custom image of my computer using WDS (Windows Deployment Services) however instead of finishing the process with a usable image file my computer is stuck in a boot loop with the entries shown below -

I thought that a logical approach to this problem would be to repair Windows using the original installation disk. However when attempting to repair with the Windows disk I get the error message below -

I am now at a loss concerning how to fix this issue. Ideally I would like to avoid reinstalling Windows from scratch.

How many times do I need to be burned by WDS before I just accept that it is useless?

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

I can see that you aren't a newbie, so I may not help. I don't have any idea on how you ended with a ramdisk on the booting options. But the second image, I have seen it before. I was trying to fix a UEFI booting from legacy boot installation disk or something alike.
