Vista 64 Bit

I was able to solve my issue thanks to the two people at this URL: Windows Vista keeps rebooting into Windows Error Recover - Startup Repair - Page 2 - Tech Support Forum

Basically, created an Ubuntu startup disk and installed in on my PC alongside my Windows OS. Pulled all the files I need to save and did a factory reformat (Vista Disc) that came with the computer.

Windows 7 32bit

@Dzomlija thank you for preparing the tutorial and sharing it. It worked for me on my HP 6706 using Windows 7. I was without my favorite device for the last 7 days and was suffering from withdrawal symptoms!

Keep up the good work.

Windows 7 Home Premium OA

I tried these steps, and first thanks to all that posted here - but I'm still having issues because my startup repair does not get past the "attempting repairs" part...the progress bar keeps moving, but nothing changes. Let it run for 4 hours at one point and no change and run it several times more for over an hour and several shorter times...I can't back out as the cancel button prompts a message that says that the current repair operation can't be cancelled. I had this same issue with my work PC, but was able to get that back up after a few attempts. Any ideas? Thanksk for the help :)

Win 7 pro 64 bit

I am also having a similar problem, but when I got to step 12 and looked for the directory it says the volume is reserved. I did find everything on the d drive, but up until today everything had been on the c drive--I don't understand the switch. Anyway, I didn't want to continue until I could make sure everything is ok. Thanks.

windows 7 ulitmate x64
Awesome Tutorial

at step 12 I'm not given access to my local drive D: that used to be my local drive C:
and i'm unable to launch the windows 7 from my installation dvd im thinking its because there is no device driver installed at this point the repair/recovery keeps prompting me to install drivers.

so what? what do i do without having access to my local drive?

Windows 7 Home. Don't know 64 or 32. Purchased in December 2009.
Startup repair endless loop


This thread seemed to be aimed at the problem I'm having, but the solution hasn't yet worked for me.

I have a Toshiba Satellite a505, purchased in December 2009, with Windows 7 Home. Has (current) McAfee antivirus protection. I don't think that I have any discs.

I was downloading a large file when, without any sign of a problem, it disconnected and shut down. Since then, logging on brings up the "Windows is laoding files" screen, followed by the Startup repair screens and dialogue boxes.

I don't know if there is an administrator account password, so I've tried my regular user password, and did go into the Command Prompt and try the solution posted in this discussion.

Everything occurs as described in the solution until step 17. While none of the files are 0 bytes, most of them are significantly different from the size estimates in the posted solution. My file sizes are approximately:

DEFAULT 246,000
SAM 70,000
SEC 29,000
SOFTWARE 25,000,000
SYSTEM 30,000,000

I did continue through the propsoed solution twice, but the Restart still brings me into the endless loop.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

windows 7 64 bit
thank you

Worked exactly as you outlined, then I updated Windows 7 (auto updates) and blue screen, system restore all over again.

One day, possibly 23rd century, man will create something that really works with out fixes.
