This may be a bit more complex situation than someone wants to take on. I am not looking for the simple solution of reinstalling. There is something simple I am overlooking. The system boots to the point of selecting the OS. The only one is Windows 7.

Win 7 was running fine before.

Running 32 bit Windows 7 RC1 build 7100 on a dual core 4GB box with 250+ GB HD (45% used). Single Samsung LCD.

Ran a CHKDSK /r because of error messages in Win 7 System log. Windows was operating sort of OK at that point (the reason for checking logs and implementing CHKDSK).

Now boots to blank screen with cursor which will move around using the mouse. Indicates some part of windows is loading.

Cannot get to safe mode.

Tried repair function from RC install disk. All results normal with last message indicating windows booted successfully.

Tried Restore function from RC install disk. Even though there were set points, none are found.

See boot screens up until selection of OS. The only OS loaded is Win 7.

Here is a little more detail on what transpires when I try to log into Windows 7 RC1, Build 7100
Blue dashes appear in upper left hand corner of Samsung 906BW monitor. The blue dashes have always appeared on the upper left hand corner when the system was functioning. Surmise this is the time the system is loading drivers (like the mouse and CD/DVD). What may not be loading is a video driver. I tried booting with the low resolution option. No change. Running the ATI 4770 card.
Ran at least four instances of CHKDSK /f .Get to C:> with Shift + F10 at Win 7 install screen.
Ran the memory repair just in case. No problems.
Ran bootsect /nt60 C: /mbr to insure the MBR is in good shape. It is.
The DIR command brings up all the files on C:\.

Was able to run SFC. From the Win 7 install CD

Result:
"unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem.
Repair Action: System files integrity check and repair
Result: failed. Error Code=0x490"

Ran the bootrec.exe /fixmbr command successfully. Still same result.

Next ran the Repair function from the install DVD.

This is the result:
"Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically. (then options to send or not send data to MS).
Problem Signatures:
Event Name: Startup repair offline
Signature 01: 6.1.7100.0
Signature 02: 6.1.7100.0
Signature 03: unknown
Signature 04: 21201225
Signature 05: external media
Signature 06: 5
Signature 07: NoBootFailure
OS Version: 6.1.7100.2.0.0.256.1
Local ID: 1033
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. See the CBS.log file"

Used Partition Wizard to check partitions. Says Windows 7 partition is Active.

Found these files using DIR: c:\windows\logs\recoverydisk\ and c:\windows\logs\systemrestore - is there any help in these?

Suggestions?

Thanks.
Mike

Hello Mike,
Give this a try,
1. Insert Win 7 installation DVD and boot from DVD drive.
2. Choose your default "Language", "Time", and "keyboard Input" on the first window and click next.
3. You're now presented with 3 choices. Click on "Repair Your Computer" to gain access to the System Recovery window. Now choose "Command Prompt" in order to run the desired utility which is called "bootsect.exe". Bootsect is located inside the boot folder so change your directory to boot. Now run "bootsect /nt60 C:\" if you had Win 7 initially installed in the C partition. Alternatively, you can run "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 ALL" to repair the system partition or all partitions. Eject the DVD, and restart computer. Your computer should now boot Win 7 again.

AdamsAppleOne,

Thanks for the information. I've already run the bootsect command as noted in my post. The booting is not the problem. It is something beyond that. Here is the boot log run this morning after some other tweaks were tried. Nothing so far has made any difference in what boots and what doesn't. Perhaps you might see something in the log others, including myself, have missed.

Here is the boot log from this morning:

The only thing I see so far is that most drivers that did not load are "Norton":-/
Are you able to remove it? I know you said you can't get in to "Safe Mode" so removing it from there is out.
You're not able to boot to desktop, correct?
It also sounds like you may have picked up a nasty somewhere.
So, is a clean install starting to sound better?:D

I'll keep looking in the mean-time

Regards, Don

This was a beta of NIS for Win 7. Don't believe that is a problem...but that is all it is, a belief.

Correct. I can only get to a C:> Been working from that.

Always possible. However, I do keep everything up to date and run a good anti-spyware program in Counterspy by Sunbelt Software.

___________________________________

Not yet :) But, the consideration is there. First need to find a good backup program that installs and runs from the command line. However, the forensics is an educational process. Either I reach the point of getting over educated with no practical results or that train comes to a halt and it is time to start over.

There is something simple I am overlooking.

A simple question I should have asked, you said,

Win 7 was running fine before.

Before what?
There might lie your answer.
Hardware change, software change/addition/removal, Windows Updates?
When did you install this BETA NIS?
Also, do you have another PC that you could slave the drive to get your data/files off of it and then do your clean install?

________________________________________
No hardware changes. All peripherals are unplugged save the KVM.

________________________________________
It was working well for about a month. The problem happened when the system slowed down. Checked logs and found errors suggesting running CHKDSK /r which I did. That is when the problem happened. The question is what should load after srv.sys? it is possible that is where the problem is. The next driver that doesn't show up.
One suggestion was to copy all of the files within \config\regback into \config, replacing them all. Might give that a try after backing up the current Config file. The author had a similar problem. Said this worked for them.

Good thought! Have two laptops. One running XP Pro 32 bit and the other running Vista Ultimate 64 bit. Could LapLink to the 32 bit machine (the Win 7 box is 32 bit) and transfer files.
Still would like to solve the puzzle. But, there is the that point out there that is gathering a little steam to wipe the drive and start over. One consideration is moving to the 64 bit Win 7 OS so the 4 GB of memory in that one will fully function.

Thanks for the response.

I'm still inclined to believe that it's Norton causing your issue.
Working fine for about a month (typical), system started becoming slow (very typical). Search around, you'll see what I mean.
There is something with "msconfig" where you can shut down everything that starts with windows and then re-enable them 1 by 1 to determine which 1 is causing the problem. It's been so long since I read about that, long and tedious but it might be something else to look in to.

Thanks, Don. Will check into modifying msconfig.

I also know there is a procedure I used some time ago with XP to restore a computer that would not reboot. Basically, replacing the config files and the related registry entries. Perhaps that is what you are referring to? Not sure if that will work with Win 7.

Win7 has a "Diagnostic Startup" in "Msconfig"

Not able to run MSCONFIG from the command line. Don't have administrative rights to run. Tried running it as a task through task manager which should have given me those rights. Did not work.
