Can you start the system from the recovery console and select command prompt type in the following commands and press enter after each :
ren C:\WINDOWS\WINSXS\PENDING.XML PENDING.old
sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=c:\windows
Are you able to get into normal windows now ?
I don't think so. I could try again but the last time I tried it was getting stuck on the "Starting Windows" screen which was what the computer was doing in the first place.
OK different tack...
In safe mode using explorer do you have the following folder d:\ tools
Download the attached Fixlist.txt to the same location as FRST
Run FRST and press Fix
On completion a log will be generated please post that
Try a normal boot on completion
