I have a Sony Vaio that I have been using for over a year now. I started it up from hibernation and as it was booting into Windows it started to windows update. When it was finished it rebooted as soon as the windows logo appears it reboots. I've tried repairing it with the installation disc and bcdedit doesn't seem to help. I installed a fresh installation onto another partition. Is there any way to copy the boot files from the new installation to the original?

It may be too late now, but when that happens to me, I always hit F8 on startup, then select "Last known good configuration." Win7 is pretty good about booting up from there.
