The system will not boot. It keeps going in a loop over and over again. When I use OEM vista disc that is genuine it runs thru the recovery/repair process and says that a patch file is preventing the system from booting. I have tried to restore but there is no restore point saved? I have ran a few tools to try and fix but nothing has worked.

I have used the cmd.exe utility to do the following:

chkdsk /f /r = Everything is fine

I have used bootrec.exe to Fixmbr and also Fixboot. I have also done the following:

  • bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
  • c:
  • cd boot
  • attrib bcd -s -h -r
  • ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
  • bootrec /RebuildBcd
I have read on other boot loop issues and also went to the C:\Windows\Winsxs and tried to delete pending.xml and there is nothing there to delete? I am able to access the log file that shows that last update being Windows Defender but shows successful.

I am not able to boot in safe mode or thru recovery. I ran f-secure iso and ran but nothing was found (malware etc) I was able to install ubuntu via thumb drive to retrieve MY Documents but I really do not want to do a fresh install.

Any ideas on this one... Thanks
