I think that my son shut the computer off as Windows Update was Updating. And now it wont boot. I was having trouble pre this problem. like loosing services and other things seemed to falling off of the operating system like system restore and others. I had Deep freeze on it but just got that disabled I can say that is not the problem,99%. anyway I canor have the CMD open and am trying to do,well I am not sure. System was not on. or those options wont work .start up repair wont work restore has not worked everything I can try has not worked. so what can I do from CMD I have rebuilt bcd fix bootmbr. Cant I just type C:start or rum or navagate my hard drive from CMD.Or go somewhere that will tell me whats missing from boot. At one time I got a "SYSTEM CONFIGURATION CORRUPT' I did CHKDSK everything checked out but the last line says, 'Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50' I have the vista disk i have tried everything I can look up on the net and now I am in your hands!!@!
