✔ Best Answer
If this is a Widows 7 machine you can use a Windows 7 Repair Disk to boot off and do the repair. Since you probably do not have it you can make one from another Windows 7 machine as long as both machines are either 32bit or both 64bit. You will need to do a Start Up Repair which is one of the option on the repair disk. The tool for creating the Repair Disk is in the Windows Back up configuration page.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
