    I believe the problem started when I let my lenovo boot optimizer, which I always skipped until now, run its full course.

    Computer attempts to start windows but fails, gives blue screen of death and restarts automatically.

    Safe mode gives the same error.

    Tried all options next to safe mode to no avail.

    tried Windows start up repair - can't fix the problem

    tried Command prompt bootrec.exe - can't fix the problem. DISKPART says all partitions and volumes are healthy, and it seems like it is not a hardware problem.

    I have a backup, but it's on Crashplan... I can't access it until I can login to crashplan. I'm about to install ubuntu, and see if I can retrieve to an old backup through Ubuntu. Any better ideas?

    At the Command Prompt after starting the pc from the DVD.
    Type the following, after each one press Enter on the keyboard.

    BOOTREC /FIXMBR
    BOOTREC /FIXBOOT
    BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD
    ===
    Do not install Ubuntu - click on 'TRY' and run it from the Cd/DVD and follow the suggestions here.

    Yes, I have downloaded the hotfix. But how am I going to execute the hotfix file, if my windows is not loading up? I tried executing the file from command prompt, but that didn't work.

    Also, the link you have sent won't work for me, as my windows is not loading up. So I cannot go to msconfig.

    I tried the BOOTREC commands. No luck!

    I made an UBUNTU DVD, and tried to boot the computer from the UBUNTU DVD. But all I see is a black screen. I am unable to start up UBUNTU's installation.

    The Bios may need to be set to boot [Start] from the Cd - it may already be set to do so.
    http://michaelstevenstech.com/bios_manufacturer.htm

    If not, in the Bios you use the arrow keys to move the Cd to the top of the list.
    Save and Exit the Bios - pressing F10 will usually do this.
    Make no other changes while in the Bios

    Tried the Bootrec again, loading from DVD. No Luck. Is it possible that I have the wrong startup disk? I made my startup disk from a website, and I chose Windows 7 Ultimate. I am not sure what windows 7 model I have and not sure how to check.

    Changed the bios as you suggested. I am now able to see UBUNTU's installation. Didn't touch that. Put the windows startup disk back in again to see if it would be any different now. I see a black screen with Windows Boot Manager written at top:

    File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD
    Status: 0xc000000d.
    I may very possibly have the wrong startup disk. I have the option of clicking enter

    If you think the windows is beyond help, I will go through UBUNTU, and follow the link you sent.\

    Thank you both! This has been a nightmare. I am usually the one helping others with computer problems in family, which means when I have a problem, nobody around me is able to help me... :(

    Just noticed something as I went into UBUNTU. It seems like Lenovo Boot Optimizer created a new volume on my computer, only 210 MB in size, and it only has a folder called "Boot" in it, and a Bootmgr file. I have a feeling that Lenovo Boot Optimizer may have copied my boot files into a separate partition, to speed up boot process, but failed to do the process completely or properly, and left my windows with no boot files, perhaps.
