    As stated in the title, my computer hangs at the "Starting Windows" screen.
    I'm using an iMac 9.1, with a bootcamp partition on Windows 7. (I can't access my Mac OS X partition at all).
    I don't have a Windows 7 Installation disk or any peripheral disks.

    I left my computer on all night and when. I woke up the next morning only to find out my computer just had a BSOD. I force shut down my computer then it just hung at the "starting windows' screen. Im assuming its a driver problem, since I can log in using safe mode. Also startup repair doesnt work, it just gives my a black screen.

    I've been working on this for 5 hours now, and i can't figure out a way to fix this problem. Reply ASAP :)

    If you can't access the mac OS and Windows is on the same hard drive - it makes me suspect that the HDD is fubar.

    A different partition isn't a factor if they are on the same hard drive, and the HDD is fubar.
