After 1 or 2 times of doing that it does eventually boot up into win 7. After researching fixes for this none have worked. I have run sfc/scannow and it came up w this message: windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Did look at the cbs.log file but do not know how to read it. Can you help?
