After pressing F8 you should see:

Repair Your Computer (Select this first then do the other steps)


Do not select any of these:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking

....

Finally Start Windows Normally.

it says,
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

Where in these steps does it do that?

Please copy the line you are on when this happens into the next post.


Enter System Recovery Options.

To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.

On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt
[*]Select Command Prompt
[*] Type SFC /scannow (Leave a single space between C and /)
[*]Hit Enter
[*]Once it completes, at the command prompt again
[*]Type chkdsk /f /r (Leave a single space between k and / and leave a single space between f and /)
[*]Hit Enter
[*]Reboot and retry Startup Repair
[*]Reboot into normal mode
[/list]

Please copy the line in the directions in my previous post (Post #23)
where it stops.


I do not understand if this happens after you select Repair Your Computer or after command prompt from this menu:

On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt

OK so we cannot get to recovery options,

Do you have a system repair disk that you might have made when you got the computer?


Do you have Windows 7 DVD?



Sorry I did not understand earlier. We have to answer these questions now.

So the DVD gets stuck on repair like at this screen only for Windows 7??

So when you boot up on the Windows DVD you can get to here:

When you reboot you will see this although yours will say windows 7. Click repair my computer

But not here???

Select your operating system

Is my understanding correct of where the DVD stops?
