    Hi,

    After updating windows 7 when it goes to boot screen I get the following error message: :confused:

    Your computer was unable to start

    If problems are found startup repair will fix them automatically. your computer might restatr several time during this process.
    No chnages will be made to your persoanl files or information. This might take several minutes.


    After several minutes roughly 5 to 6 minutes:

    Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically

    Can you startup in safe mode? do you have your windows DvD?
    Yes.. windows loads OK no problem at all

    Trying now...
    If you can start a command prompt try:
    bootrec /RebuildBcd
    You can also try
    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot

    I just discovered that Windows update has hit and miss MOST OF updates as well.

    example 1:
    Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2443685)
    Installation date: ‎7/‎06/‎2011 12:13 PM
    Installation status: Failed
    Error details: Code 800F0816
    Update type: Important

    I figured out my issue was from windows update so here is what i did:


    1. Open Command Prompt by Start -> Run and type “cmd“
    2. On the Command Prompt, type “net stop wuauserv“. This is done so that you will terminate the windows automatic update service to allow us to delete the cache files
    3. Still on the Command Prompt, type “cd /d %windir%” or “cd\windows“
    4. Type “rd /s SoftwareDistribution“
    5. Thats it, the cache has been purged. Now we need to restart the windows automatic update service again. To do that, type “net start wuauserv“
    6. Or go to this link: http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=971058

    Note
    :

    • When i updated windows 7 most updates FAILED so I installed each windows update individually.

    • If individual update fails try it again until it gets installed correctly :confused:
    • After several attempts if one particular update fails repeatedly, skip it and move on to the next update.(make sure to restart PC/Laptop after each update)
    • If after restart you get this message: Your computer was unable to start. Startup repair is checking your system for problems WAIT until repair is completed. Go to windows update and continue update.
    It is a lengthy process, took me 3 days!!! :eek: Laptop is running normally now.


    • IF ALL ELSE FAILS: Refer to Vivie1 comment:

    Use the DVD to go into command prompt to repair windows 7 system. (This will only repair your system if there is any damaged or corrupt files).
