    same problem


    Dear guys, Iīm new here. I had the same problem last night. PC got frozen, I restarted with the button, and appeared in the window with the options to either go to startup repair or to start windows normally. Either one I chose it gets to the same screen.

    I tried the STARTUP REPAIR first,
    the first time, it didnīt find any operating system, anyway it ran, but said the problems couldnībe fixed. So I restarted
    second time, found the operating system, ran startup repair, checked for half an hour and appeared a sign saying "repairing disk errors, this might take over an hour to complete" and kept like that for eight hours, until I read in this thread that it shouldnīt take so long, so I restarted.
    third time, found operating system, running now again startup repair, half an hour to get to the sign about the disk again, now Iīm planning to wait no more than 1 hour to make the next step.

    What I would like to know your advice about is
    1. should I try how many times to do START UP REPAIR?
    2. in case I should take a different solution, which is first, system recovery or repair install?

    thanks for your advice, I use the pc to work and need to solve this asap.

    thanks again

    Hi casiopea,

    should I try how many times to do START UP REPAIR?
    Sometimes, depending on how bad it is, you may need to run Startup Repair up to 3 times, it should never take more than that though.

    In case I should take a different solution, which is first, system recovery or repair install?
    Unfortunately, a repair install (I believe) can only be done from within a booting copy of Windows, In which case your only option would be a Custom Install, or recover a system image. Brink or someone else may have a better solution for you, but I'm fairly certain that if Startup Repair is failing, there is probably something seriously wrong with your installation.

    Hello Casiopea, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Did you make any changes or install anything before this happened?

    You might see if doing a system restore at boot (if able) using a restore point dated before you had this issue may help.

    If not, then Martin's post above is a good suggestion. If running startup repair up to 3 times cannot fix it, then it may be best to do a custom install if you have files you need to save, or a clean install if you do not.

    I tried to do a SYSTEM RESTORE using the same cd I used for STARTUP REPAIR, but when I click on SYSTEM RESTORE, it stays there, thinks for a second, but donīt go anywhere.-edit- sorry, it just took a long time until a window appeared, saying THERE IS NO POINT CREATED TO RETURN TO. so, I will try one more time to do STARTUP REPAIR, and then...

    I think I will try CUSTOM INSTALL then, so that I save some files I preffer to keep. the problem I see is that I will loose programs and drivers installed, thatīs not nice

    thanks a lot guys

    It's probably registry corruption.

    This my own method for doing it - don't go making tutorials out of it please.

    Boot your 7 recovery cd. Go to command prompt.

    Type :

    notepad

    (then press enter )

    when notepad pops up, click File >Save

    Navigate to Windows\system32\config\regback

    (It's a pain , but you will need to keep selecting "All Files" in notepad dropdown. )

    Rt click and copy SOFTWARE (file with no extension )

    Startup Repair-notepad.jpg



    then navigate to Windows\system32\config rt click and paste - overwrite the existing SOFTWARE .

    Now go back to Windows\system32\config\regback , copy SYSTEM

    then navigate to Windows\system32\config rt click and paste - overwrite the existing SYSTEM

    repeat for DEFAULT, SAM and SECURITY .

    Then try startup repair and reboot.

    Can you follow that ?
