What do you mean by checkdisk fails precisely?

Sorry, checkdisk completed.. but failed to stop the loop.
All checks 100% done, so repairs done.
thanks

Ok, so chkdsk doesn't fail as you corrected...

So what exactly have you tried and ruled out?

Bad HDD or RAM
Rootkit / Malware / Infected MBR
Recently installed drivers / software / Windows updates or service packs
Have you tried Offline SFC?
System Restore?
Does it start in safe mode?
Does it blue screen in either mode (also what is it, and have you analyzed crash dumps?)

Need more info!

I believe I used the appropriate DART disk and rolled it back.

My first port of call would be to check the hard disk:

Hi Union122,
I have never had this issue in Win7 but i have had it in Vista. The following cured it for me:

To fix this problem, try these steps:
1: Boot from Windows Vista DVD and on the Install Now screen, click Repair Your Computer.
2: Click Command Prompt.
3: Type cd C:\windows\winsxs and then press ENTER.
4: Type ren pending.xml pending.old and then press ENTER.
5: Type regedit and then press ENTER.
6: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Now click on the File menu and then click Load Hive.
7: Locate the following folder:
C:\windows\system32\config\components
When you are prompted for a name, type Offline_Components.
8:In Registry Editor, locate and then delete the following registry subkey:
HLKM\Offline Components\AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving
HKLM\Offline Components\PendingXmlIdentifier
9: Type exit and restart your computer.

I have pasted the whole details here as i found it a few years back (i keep this file on my usb now) but as far as i remember i only did as far as item number 4 and then rebooted and it worked - obviously use the Win7 cd not vista.

Also, did this happen after an update? You could try opening C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and deleting the stuff (personally i would copy them elsewhere JIC).

Yes I had the same problem. I repaired it by following neosmart forum:

The person with the problem on the neosmart forum wasn't the same exact problem we were having. But when I did bootrec /fixboot it gave me the same error he was having when he typed the same command. So if it keeps rebooting to starup repair, just rebuild everything as the Microsoft article below. I use this as a last resort and it fixed it.

http://neosmart.net/forums/showthread.php?t=767&page=1

and also doing this from the Microsoft website:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

The second is similar to the first link.

This has fixed my problem I was having with a customer PC. And check the main partition is set to active too. It helps in finishing Microsoft steps.

Make sure you scan for malware and viruses after this part is fixed.

Thank You
Benjamin Betancourt
