I've been given a Dell Latitude E6510 to repair. The issue being that no matter what, it will boot to the startup repair. I'm given the options of Launch Startup Repair and Start Windows Normally. Both options yield the same results.
The first thing I tried was to boot to safe mode. It shows some drivers loading, then proceed to still go to startup repair.
I then followed the instructions here:
That didn't work, so I found some instructions to copy the RegBack contents to System32/Config after backing up that folder. This still did not work.
I've also used a Windows 7 Dell recovery disk to perform bootrec /FixMBR and bootrec /Fixboot
I'm stumped at this point. This is for the owner of the company that I work for, so restoring to factory is an absolute last resort. Below are the results of FRST64.exe if it helps. I would highly appreciate any more suggestions! Thanks!
