    Windows won't start. I get a a black screen saying some hardware or software has changed and the only options are to press enter to continue, or escape to exit.

    I tried booting my Win 7 64 bit recovery disc (aka system repair disc) but in the second screen where it tells you to select an operating system, it is blank! I attempted to add hard disk drivers but i couldn't figure out how.

    So i pressed next and got to the screen with various options. I selected "Startup Repair" but that won't work.

    It says that "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically",

    The error details are as follows:

    Problem signature:

    Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline

    Problem Signature 01:

    Problem Signature 02:

    Problem Signature 03: unknown

    Problem Signature 04: 0

    Problem Signature 05: unknown

    Problem Signature 06: 1

    Problem Signature 07: unknown

    OS Version: 6.1.7600.

    Locale ID: 1033

    So i can't do any type of recovery to repair my Windows 7. Would finding the appropriate hard disk driver in the beginning of the startup repair process (the second screen) be a solution to be able to select the appropriate OS to fix? if so, how?

    What else can I do besides backing up all my important files and reinstalling everything? I'd really like to "fix" this.

    Thanks for the help in advance!
