Windows 7: Startup Repair not working

21 Jun 2011   #11

Windows 7 home premium x64
 
 
Not :(

3 things:

1.- I create a Startup Repair CD from a mate's pc, windows 7 home premium 64 bits. Used it and the same problem.

2.- Used FixBoot and FixMbr on the command thing, and it said: Completed Correctly. And when I restarted... nothing new

3.- Used ScanOS, and the result where: Total of windows instalations identified: 0
... is that normal?


Thx Theog and gregrocker for your time and answers

YOu may need to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots, once you've confirmed the Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) are marked Active: Partition - Mark as Active

You can mark Active and see a graphic picture of your HD using free Partition Wizard bootable CD, as well as post back a cam snap of the drive map with listings from which we can possibly detect underlying problems. If you mark Active this way, highlight the HD and from the Disk tab choose Rebuild MBR which might preclude the need to run Repairs.

Running the bootrec commands is just to jumpstart Repair if CD finds no installation to repair. All boot repair and a dozen other tests and fixes are automated in Startup Repair.

But if 3 Repairs doesn't do it, you can manually try System Restore from the System Recovery Options, as well as from Command Line try SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

You should also run a bootable AV CD scan like Bitdefender: FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs Download List. If it cleans up infections, run Startup Repair and SFC again to see it it will start.

If all fails, you can copy out your data with CD this way: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run Sony Factory Recovery from partition or Recovery Disks, or find a Win7 installer to clean reinstall with the Product Key on your COA sticker: Reinstalling Windows 7
