Hi,
My sisterīs Sony Vaio laptop wonīt boot. (Windows 7 Home Premium)
When I try to boot it up it goes into the Windows Error Recovery DOS screen with only two options: Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. When I try to start windows normally, the windows logo animation appears and stays forever. If I select Startup Repair, the process runs through loading files, then goes to repairing the system and also stays there forever.

Iīve managed to run the combo Wintoboot/Windows 7 64bit RC but when I get to the command prompt and try to run FRST64.exe it crashes (not the system, only the FRST64.exe). The mouse and the command prompt still work though. (picture: http://d.pr/i/NCkt)

I was not sure if the system is 32 or 64bits, thatīs why I tried to run FRST.exe and then FRST64.exe, only the latter opened (and crashed).

By the way, I followed the instructions on this thread http://www.geekstogo...up-repair-loop/

What else can I try?

Oh...! One more thing. When I get to this screen:

My system is not recognised :(

Startup repair: http://d.pr/i/jU94
Then it restarts the computer and we're back to this: http://d.pr/i/gjgp
If I try to start Windows normally I get stuck on this: http://d.pr/i/zu7J

I'm not sure. My sister just said she was working on the laptop just fine. On the other day, while booting the laptop, this screen http://d.pr/i/gjgp appeared.
