Hello Rafael, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if you may be able to do OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to boot to the "System Recovery Options" screen instead. :)

Hope this helps,

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

First of all, thanks a lot for helping a lot of people! +1 to you, sir!

I've been trying to fix my laptop for a long time and after a while decided to buy a new one. Now I've found this post and tried all of it, without any problems at all.
Though, when I rebooted my computer after overwriting the files, the same problem occured and windows booted up in startup repair again...

I don't even care any more if I loose the files that are on that pc, but it even won't boot up from the installation disc. The only thing it does is starting up at system recovery, which doesn't work at all.

Do you have any suggestions for my problem?

Thanks for your time,

windows 7 ultimate x32

when i check if i can use the automatic Windows backups to restore registry:

I type DIR and press <ENTER> to view the contents of the folder. All the following files exist:
  • The SYSTEM
  • The files are 0 bytes, can anyone tell me what can i do to recovering these files? Windows cannot function with a 0-byte size registry hive. or try other method?
