Windows 7 Startup Repair Tool

One of the most difficult things to troubleshoot and repair is a PC that fails to start. Since the operating system won't run, you can't use any of its troubleshooting tools. Windows 7 is designed to automatically run Startup Repair if Windows detects a startup problem. Startup Repair automatically scans your computer then tries to fix the problem.

If your PC fails to start and Startup Repair doesn't automatically start, you need to restart (boot) your computer from your Windows 7 installation disc. Today, many PC manufacturers try to save a few pennies by not providing an installation disc with the system. You're supposed to create a system repair disc as a first step before the system.

When you boot from the installation disc or system repair disc, Startup Repair will be one of the options in the System Recovery Options menu. To boot from the installation disc or system repair disc:

1. Remove any flash drives, CDs, and DVDs from your PC. Restart your PC using the power button.
2. As your computer restarts, before the Windows logo appears, press the [F8] key. If the PC doesn't boot to the Advanced Boot Options screen, you need to shut down your PC and try again.

System Recovery Options

Startup Repair
System Restore
System Image Recovery
Windows Memory Diagnostic
Command Prompt

3. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair.

If Startup Repair fails to fix your system, you may have no alternative but to reinstall Windows, or use System Image Recovery. You can use a System Image Recovery to restore the contents of your hard disk. A System Image is an exact copy of the PC's hard disc including Windows 7 and your system settings, programs, and files.

Immediately after you finish installing Windows 7, installed all your applications, and configured your PC to your liking, one of the first things you should do is create a system image. It's better to restore a system image than to reinstall Windows because a system image will restore all your applications, and settings.
