Problem Event name : StartupRepairv2 Corruptvolume WrpRepair RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all

    After having worked fine during the morning, I tried to boot my laptop (Dell Vostro 1000, running Windows Vista Business 32-bit) and keep being forced to the Startup Repair (normal boot, safe mode, last know good configuration all fail). This repair ran a couple of hours and then stated it could not automatically repair, stating:

    "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically. If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or a portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance."

    Detailed report:

    Since I've pretty much tried all, except factory reset, I was hoping someone here could point me to a solution or give a diagnostic on what would be wrong (faulty hard drive, bad update?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards

  • Hi Johan,

    Thank you for posting!

    From your description, I suspect the issue is due to faulty hardware. Please unplug all unnecessary external devices when booting, including your internet access cable, even your mouse. If it does not work, let us try in-place upgrade. If this failed again, it is suggested to contact the manufacture on the hardware side.

    Note: After performing In-Place Upgrade, your personal data and installed programs usually will not be removed but we may need to run Windows Update to install all the available updates for your system to update these system files to the current version. This troubleshooting process is time consuming. Your patience is highly appreciated.

    As to the steps of In-Place Upgrade, I still would like to explain that it will reinstall all system files with this method. You may need to reinstall some applications to upgrade some files to a higher version, because they may be replaced during the installation of Windows. It will take about two hours to repair. Your personal files and settings will be kept as they were after the installation. However, it is always recommended to backup the important information and files to other partitions or other disks before doing it.

    If you would like to perform the In-place Upgrade, let’s refer to the following steps.

    1. Start the computer by using the current Operating System.

    2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.

    3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate:

    If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the Install now screen appears. Click Install now.

    If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:

    a. Click Start, type Drive:\setup.exe, and then click OK.

    Note Drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.

    b. Click Install now.

    4. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want?" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the current operating system to Windows Vista.
