Without RPC running I didn't think you were able to load Windows at all. Try this, boot the computer and press the "Windows" key after it is done loading up. It should be located on the bottom left of your keyboard between Ctrl and Alt. Press it and while pressing it press "R" and it should bring up a run box. Type services.msc and search for Remote Procedure Call and set it to automatic, click Start, and click Apply. If this doesn't work try this.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and click File on the top left of the task manager. Select "New Task (Run)" and type services.msc and do the same as described above. Also make sure that explorer.exe is running in your processes list under task manager. If it is not then click file, new task, and type explorer.exe and hit enter. Let me know if this has helped. I also have a .reg file I made you can use to set all your services back to windows defaults in case you accidentally mess them all up. There is no built in setting in windows to set them all back.

Try setting it to automatic and click apply then ok. Then reboot. It should start on reboot.
