Windows 7 is the latest operating system from Microsoft that is laden with loads of advanced features to present a nice user-friendly experience. One of such features is the Startup Repair tool that diagnoses and repairs any problem that is barring your from starting the Windows system. Although this tool was introduced in Windows Vista but in Windows 7 this tool is installed on the hard disk making it more handy to use. However, there are instances when this repair tool does not work and the system remains inaccessible. You should look to perform data recovery in such cases with the use of a third-party data recovery software.
Consider a scenario in which you are unable to access your Windows 7 system as it is showing a STOP error during the boot process.
Various causes could be responsible for such booting issue in Windows 7. Some of them are:
The Windows registry is damaged.
A critical system file is missing, damaged, or corrupt.
A device driver file is missing or damaged.
You should use the Startup Repair tool to repair such inconsistencies in the system files, registry entries, etc. To do this, the following steps are required:
Insert the Windows 7 installation disc and restart the system.
Set the language preferences, currency settings, date/time settings of your local area, etc, and click Next.
Select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
Click 'Startup Repair' in the System Recovery Options to start the repair process.
Click Finish when the repair process gets completed.
Restart the computer.
You would be able to access your computer after performing these Windows recovery steps. If you are unable to start the system, then you should use a third-party data recovery software to recover all the data from the inaccessible system. The best thing about these data recovery tools is that the recovery is safe and secure as non-destructive scanning mechanisms are used for this purpose.
