Windows 7 Will Not Boot - Registry Corrupt

    Question

  • My computer will not boot into Windows or Safe mode.  Also, from the recovery console "Start Up Repair" or "System Repair" did not work.  I can get to the command prompt; however, only Public files are available since I am not logged in.  Is there a way to get logged in as an administrator so I can access the user files.  I do have an administrator account and password.

     

    Thanks,

    looks like you're out of luck. Try booting from a WinPE or Linux Live CD and backup all personal data and install your Windows again.

  • Alex,

    I was originally looking to get logged in because when I went to the command prompt and went to to the Users directory only Public showed up.  For fun I started trying different drive letters and when I tried D and went to Users my User directories were available.  I got my files and rebuilt my PC. 

    Thanks,

  • Try this:

    Using Last Known Good Configuration

    Advanced startup options (including safe mode)

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

     

    If you can get to the command prompt, you can also try to start the system restore from command prompt to see if it could get back to a good time point:

     

    At the command prompt, type rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi,

     

    An in-place upgrade is the final alternative before you have to reinstall the operating system.

    Note: that it takes the same amount of time to do the upgrade as to reinstall the operating system. Also, some of your customized Windows settings may be lost through this process.

  • InPlace upgrade without being able to boot to Windows? How should this work?

  • I was using my Dell win 7 laptop, looking at a website I always do, (safe site)  and it just rebooted out of no-where, and now I get BSOD every boot.   even safe mode, I tried a sysrestore, nothing works.  I tried the advanced options, and it can't do a sys restore from there.   I used last know good configuration.  still get BSOD.

    It's window7 enterprise version.  any hints ?    every BSOD says something different.

  • Hi blur,

     

    To avoid confusion, it is recommended to start a new post in this forum.
