    c: \windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

    In the advanced boot options do you have an option for Repair your Computer ?

    If you can get hold of a Win 7 system repair disk of the same architecture as yours, that should get you into the Recovery Environment (RE) to use the repair options.

    These can be created on any Win 7 machine but it must be either 32 or 64 bit to match yours.

    Startup Repair may work but if the restore option fails in the RE, it can leave you with just a black screen and a big white pointer.

    When Repair your Computer went missing from my laptop, I had to factory reset to get it back - I assume you don't have the Last Known Good Config option either ?
