Windows 7 Does Not Boot Successfully

When Windows 7 does not boot successfully, it will open and run the System Recovery Option and try to resolve it automatically. If the issue still exists, you are able to access the System Recovery Options yourself with the Windows 7 Installation Disc and continue troubleshooting.

  1. Set the CD/DVD drive to boot before the hard drive. To do this, go to your BIOS (continually press the Delete key immediately after turning on the system). Under the [Boot] tab, use your keyboard to move the CD/DVD drive to the top of the boot list. After that is complete, press F10 to Save and Restart with the Windows 7 Installation Disc in the drive.

  2. When prompted, Windows will tell you to press any key to boot from the CD/DVD drive. Follow the instructions. Go through the options and then click [Next].

  3. New click [Repair Your Computer].

  4. Select the Windows installation you want to repair, then click [Next].

  5. The System Recovery Options menu will open. Try the Startup Repair option first. If that doesn't work, use the System Restore.

  • Startup Repair -- Use this option first. It will detect and fix problems that can prevent Windows from starting normally, such as missing or damaged system files.

  • System Restore -- If Startup Repair does not work, try performing a System Restore. This helps you restore your Compix system's computer files to an earlier point in time.

  1. Windows Reinstall -- Reinstalling Windows 7 is the last option if nothing else works. If this is done, all your files will be backed up in a folder called after the installation is complete. But if this is performed, you'll need to reinstall the Compix drivers and software either from or the Compix installation DVD.
