Hello KungFuPanda, welcome to Seven Forums!

Try booting to the sfc /scan it may help where the other won't because while Windows is 'running' it may not be able to repair some of the 'running' files and be sure to do the boot-scan several times, sometime that's necessary to complete successfully.

Have a look at this tutorial at the link below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

You'd need to burn your Documents, Music, Video, and Picture folders and have the installers for installed programs.

How did SFC /scannow go? OOPS! Just saw your post. Try it at least 3 times followed by a reboot.
To be exact it's like 430-460 GB worth of files. Literally.
