Hello, I have a problem with my windows 7 Installation. Every time I boot to windows it hangs and says "Preparing your windows" and after that I get a blank screen. This happened after I removed the Windows XP I had on the same HHD, and extended the Windows 7 partition. I can not enter safe mode, since it has the same issue. All I can do is open task manager/regedit/run/cmd....I have tried running sfc /scannow but it fails at 15% with some weird error. I have also tried messing up with the profiles using the regedit, ProfileList. That also did not help, it keeps creating Temp profiles. Windows system repair also did not help. It said everything is correct and working fine. Any ideas? I have googled for hours, tried every solution and nothing worked. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO RE-INSTALL WINDOWS. Thanks!
