    Windows startup screen

    I had tried to do a non-destructive reinstall of windows 7.On startup I received this screen whenever the system boots ( see screen information below). If I enter when the first screen pops up, I go to a second screen where I can Select Windows 7 and Then I can log in. I would like to get rid of these screens so it will boot up to the windows startup screen and I can log in!

    Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the ptoblem:
    1. Insert your windows disk and restart your computer.
    2. Chose your language settings, and click NEXT.
    3. Click Repair your Computer.
    File\Windows.~BT\windows\system32\winload.exe
    Status : 0Xc000000f
    Info: the selected entry could not be loaded because theapplication is missing or corrupt.

    ENTER to continue

    I then hit enter and it goes to a second screen.

    Choose and operating system to start or press TAB to select wtool:
    Windowssetup
    Windows7
    To specify an advanced option for this change PRESS F8.
    Tools window memory diagnostic

    ENTER=Choose
    TAB=Menu
    ESC=Cancel

    Go Start - type msconfig and press enter.

    Under the General tab is the Normal startup button checked and under the Boot tab are all boxes unchecked ?

    Also under the Boot tab, does it list Win 7 ?

    If everything seems to be in order then try another repair install.

    I assume you didn't create an external system image before the repair install or that you don't have an earlier image to fall back on ?

    Why not try the three steps Windows suggests?

    Glad that helped.

    Was it just the Normal startup button that needed checking or were there boxes checked under the Boot tab that shouldn't have been ?
