Many many thanks

Recently hit this problem on a brand new model, I was pretty livid about possibly loosing all my data, I use it for University work and what not. I would just like to thank the absolute hell out of you for posting this. I was stuck in that loop for about 3 hours trying little different steps but your's worked first time.

Thank you so much man, you saved me a hell of a lot of trouble. Drinks on me.

infinite loop

Thanks so much for this excellent tutorial :) which saved me lots of time when trying to start win 7 with a newly cloned SSD drive, which norton ghost obviously didn't clone properly. You might consider also listing this tutorial for anyone who cannot get a cloned SSD to boot properly.
Thanks again

Windows 7 64bit

Hi, I'm at step 13, and the sizes of my folders are all way off compared to what is described in step 13. Here are the sizes of my folders as shown in Command Prompt:

DEFAULT - 958464
SAM - 61440
SECURITY - 24576
SOFTWARE - 71118848
SYSTEM - 19513344

Ignoring this and pushing on did not get my computer out of the startup repair loop. :[ What might be the problem, here? And how might I fix it?
