Win 7 won't boot up, need to "repair"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, so the build was done and now a legit copy of Win 7 is giving me the screen with the status bar saying "Atempting to Repair"
I am then brough into options from CMND console, repair, memory test, etc etc.
This issue seems common and i can tell you i tried what seems to be almost everything.
I first unplugged the Netgear WiFi USB card, Microsoft Keyboard trans-reciever and mouse trans-reciever for the wireless products. Restart and no luck.
I then did a memory test that is offered as one of the option, no luck
Then I tried just clicking the repair option again, no luck
Then i did the CMND console and used the first 3 commands as recommended here
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/win...mbr,10036.html
still no luck.
I tried a system restore but it gives me error saying it could not be completed and was stopped or operation was terminated.
I took out the RAM and placed one into the black slot and one into the blue slot, prior i had both in the blue because the build is in a mini-tower and i though i needed the room for the HDD but i did not....still no luck.
When i go into BIOS and adjust to boot from disk to boot first form HDD, no luck as well as when i put in the Win 7 disk, i adjust BIOS to boot form CD drive first and no luck.
I did notice the system is picking up the HDD drive as a D: the D: drive rather than the common C: drive.
I would just reinstall but i wasn't sure if there were other options or is there a way i can get into it from f8 and boot the Win 7 disk?
Also, safe mode takes me through the same thing if i initiate it from "f8" or the boot menu.
I been on Windows help site, Toms hardware and general Q&A places on the web.
The only other thing i see what i REALLY hope it's not is that the drive could be messed up, but i don't see how it's possible. I think it is happening due to me shutting down "improper" because the display was not showing for some reason the first 2 boots. That issue was resolved, i browsed the web, installed Win 7 updates (77 of them), Mozilla, ATI driver, Steam.

Thanks for reading if you still are!
The system is an MSI-890GXM-G65
G.Skill 4GB
ATI 5670
WD 640 7200RPM GB HDD

Put in your Windows disk and hit "Repair my computer", then "Startup repair"

It doesn't give me that option. When the OEM disc is in, it goes through everything then comes to repairing system screen, says nothing found or could not repair. Then when i get to the options screen, it just does the same thing turning the same result.

I just tried disabling the HDD in BIOS and only allowing the CD-ROM and put in the install disk, no luck
Then the opposite but i did notice in the Problem Signature list there is number 7 as "Bad Driver"

Could i just start my PC, add the HDD from that PC to my SATA connections, and wipe it? Or should i connect it prior rto but, ensure in BIOS mine is going to go first, then wipe it?
Running out of ideas and searches are just returning the same things.
