Got a problem with booting into win 7 , computer boots past the bios and starts to load windows ,
stops when it gets to the flying windows ,just goes click and reboots.
tried all the tricks in the book, won't even boot from the winDVD to get into repair
UNLESS ...
I do one thing : tap on the enter key repeatedly when the "starting windows" comes up, nothing works except this.
Once booted up into windows all is sweet, no errors on disk etc. When I restart it goes back to same problem.
Tried all the bios options ( fail safe, other profiles etc) Once into windows repair - did the fix mbr and other start repairs- no change.
As it stands I can now boot into windows, but only doing the tap tap at the start up screen. Found it out after 2 hours of trying all ese.
Anyone got any ideas please, or what could be the cause ?
thanks in advance/

Boot into safe mode and note the file where it get's stuck ....
Then boot while logging and skip that file which you found it to get stuck at above.
Post the name and address of that particular file here.

I had the same sort of problem a few times following windows updates - only way i could find to fix it was to restore back to a point before the updates and then try installing them again.

Solution Found : embarrassing enough I found that the cause of the problem was caused by my plugging my usb-cabled printer into the blue usb 3 port ; there was no more usb2 ports left on the back of the computer -
so i put it into the usb3 port (after checking the manual which says the the usb3 ports are backward compatible to version 2 as well.
The port worked so thought all was well ( so forgot about it).
Computers are very strange - but then again so are people. :o
