Hello,

I am having issues getting my laptop to boot. It was working fine on 03/11/15 and I working into the evening on it. Went to boot it up 03/12/15 and received the following:

Screen One:
Windows is loading files...

Screen Two:
[Startup Repair box]
If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your coputer. If you continue to see this message, contact your system adminstrator, or run Lenovo Product Recovery.

(I have not attached anything)

Screen Three:
[Diagnostic Repair Details]
boot critical file D;\CLFS.SYS is corrupt

I'm able to go in to the System Recovery Options screen and did restore when this first happened. Clearly I'm in over my head on this and need assistance. I've tried searching for help on the web, but just don't know enough about what it happening to correct the problem. Please help!!

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply.

I have tried what you suggested and am finding myself unable to get the command prompt in safe mode. I was finally able to figure out how to get to safe mode, by tapping f8 repeatedly during startup. Once I'm in the Advanced Boot Options menu I select Safe Mode with Command Prompt. From there is goes right into the safe processes I've been dealing with all along. It will go to 'Windows is loading files....' and then to the 'Startup Repair Box' where it scans and tells me it can't fix the problem.

Any suggestions on how I can get to the command prompt in Safe Mode without it continuing to load the Windows files?

Thank you.
