Every time I run sfc /scannow it replies "there is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again." And every time I restart and go back to the cmd via "system recovery options" it says the same thing, which is from what I assume because I am in system recovery options.

Win7 pro x64

from a command prompt try:

dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

then reboot and try sfc /scannow again

or a second option is to do this

regedit > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RebootPending

right-click on the Rebootpending key and delete it, then reboot

to do the second option you may have to use regedit offline, as discussed here
