Win 7 boot loop
I am trying to fix a friends Dell Inspiron 1545 that is on a boot loop. None of the normal tricks seem to work. It will not boot to safe mode or any other of the common diagnostic options. When I get to Edit Boot Options this is what I see:
Edit Windows boot options for: Windows 7
Hard Disk: 86f8f0b
[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN ]
The laptop came with all software pre-loaded and there is no repair disk for me to use.
If this was set up by the user, which I don't think it was, what should I do to fix it? I've seen, after some searching, that by changing this Windows will boot but it will be necessary to do this each time. Is there a permanent fix? Thanks!
What a world, what a world...
