Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1

I began troubleshooting around 10P. Unfortunately I didn't implement your solution until after 3A... groggy and hyped on Cherry Coke, I was pleased and relieved to look up and see our On-Air computer happily asking for a login!

Thank You!!!

WIN 7 32 and 64 PROF

this thread is not the newest, but it helped me tremendously: i had that stupid ''Infinitely Looping'' on my WIN 7 32 computer, and could neither boot normally nor into SAFE mode. the WIN sign came up very shortly, then back into the POST screen, again and again. then the WIN REPAIR suggestions, which also did nothing.

but following your instructions above i now at least can boot into SAFE MODE without problem - but still not into the normal startup. there is no looping anymore, but i get an ''OUT OF RANGE'' on a black screen, nothing else.

any idea, any suggestion where to go from here? and also important, where could these faults come from? hardly a chance for a virus on my machine (and various checkers have found none), always fully updated WINs, no strange progs installed - and bang, there is the loop and now the OUT OF RANGE.

i am lost.

greets - henry

None stuck in a loop

First time poster. Great forum thanks. Now I have crashed from a Windows 10 infinite reboot loop. Searching in Win 10 forums led me here. I will definitely be rolling back to Win 7 when I can get an operating system to boot up again on my computer.
Toshiba P850 running an SSD with all program files and system. All my data is on an internal HDD. SSD is usually C: drive. Data is usually D: drive.

I can get a cmd prompt window and it goes to x: drive. I have done a Diskpart and can see all the drives. Problem is my C: drive now has letter D: as designation and my D: drive is designated C:
Should I be worried about this before I try your tutorial back on page 1 of this thread?
I have done a bootmgr - didn't help Mr yet.

I am an old DOS user so I remember a few of the commands.
What I want to do is be able to do is get any Windows operating system to boot up, then I will rollback using a Windows 7 system image backup I have on an external drive.

I don't have Windows 7 recovery media because this computer came pre installed with Win 7 Home Premium. I am currently working in Malaysia and any disks I might have to help will be at home in Australia.
I have used the command prompt to look at all my directories in each drive and all looks in tact. Diskpart returns a healthy status on each drive, just C: and D: reversed assignment.
Can someone point Mr to my next step please? Sorry if there are typos in this, am using my phone.

None stuck in a loop

I solved my problem by using the same version of Windows 7 as my computer had when I did my image backup. The drive designations had no bearing on it. I am back up and running. Thanks to the forum contributors (even though no-one actually replied specifically t me, reading the posts helped a lot)

Thank you ! ! !

After trying everything I could think of, as well as following the advice of several "experts" from many other sites, I happened upon your tutorial. Thank goodness! Everyone else (including "just ask. com" and Best Buy's Geek Squad) advised me that the only alternative left was to use the system recovery disk and lose all my data. Your directions worked like a charm on my system - and I have a Windows Vista operating system. Huge relief. Thanks so much.
