Startup repair offline Windows 7PRO
• About two weeks I was trying to remove an antivirus that the removal file was somehow no longer available... In order to get a new antivirus I needed to removed the old one; so I used a 3rd party uninstaller. Once the PC tower bootup I got the blue screen of death. PC does not have a DVD so I setup a USB with the windows files to go into the USB to use the repair function, which it did some staff because the blue screen error code is now different. So the OS is not loading! I thought then I can do an in-place upgrade of the same OS with my USB, but I am getting an error that "The computer started using the Windows installation disc. Remove the installation disc and restart your computer so that Windows starts normally. Then, then..... " Not very good news since that is my problem, my computer will not restart normally!
• F8 is non functional, so I cannot try
1. Last Good Know Configuration

• Local ID: 1033
• System Recovery Options:
• - Startup Repair
- System Restore
- System Image Recovery
- Windows Memory Diagnostics
- Command Prompt
• But the only option I get is the Startup Repair because it says that there is no system restore point and I know I never created an image. Windows memory diagnostics did not found anything, and I do have access to command prompt!
I found someone having certain similarities to my problem here:Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically - please help and I followed the Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER.
•If the Bootrec.exe tool runs successfully, it presents you with an installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.
•If the Bootrec.exe tool cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order in which they are presented. Press ENTER after each command.
Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
This part failed because it said that it could not find the bcd file...
This work successfully
1.Restart the computer.
Blue screen of death yet again!
