    I have an HP Pavilion g6 Series with Win 7 Home Premium. Every time I boot the machine up it gets stuck on the "Starting Windows" screen. I tried running Hirens boot to fix the MBR thinking it may be the issue. No such luck. I am really trying to avoid re-installing windows because I have a large amount of data (500gb+) That I would have to transfer. There is no known good restore point so that is ruled out. I tried booting it up in Safemode also and it gets stuck right at the end. Any ideas as to what it may be would be awesome. Thanks!

    Did you try the Start Up repair option? Sometimes you need to run it 3 times. Do a search I don't remember enough about the steps to help.

    I have ran the start up repair. Not 3 times but I'll give that a shot.
