Startup Repair – Explained With Uses

There are lots of different problems what a normal computer users do suffer at least once in a while and it can be your computer who’s showing you the “BOOTMGR is missing “error on startup or maybe your windows goes into a blue screen or having auto system restarts loop on its startup process (normally when the windows logo appears).

That’s the kind of problem what we’re normally fixing by using the tool called startup repair.

So, now the questions what we are normally wondering about is:

What Is This “Startup Repair”, By The Way?

This feature is very useful and effective Windows Repairing tool and the main work what’s this feature do is to repair your windows when something prevents your Windows from starting or in a technical language I can say it restore boot volume files when your Operating system is having some problem to boot itself.

What Is This “Startup Repair” Actually Do In Our Windows?

Startup or Automatic Repair is one and only recovery tools what your windows is having to repair windows starting problem quickly because this effective tool is intended to repair only certain glitches like, missing or damaged system files who mainly used to load your windows operating system.

What’s This “Startup Repair” Feature Can’t Able To Fix?

The bad thing about this feature is, it can’t show you what’s creating the problem to start your windows. It won’t help you recover your private files and documents. It also can’t detect or fix hardware failures nor does it help against virus attacks and their damages.

So, it’s only gonna fix some certain things or otherwise it will show you, startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically or automatic repair couldn’t repair your PC.

#NOTE: This tutorial is only for windows vista and windows 7 users and if you’re using Windows 10/8 then you’ll need to click on the link given below because in Windows 10 or 8 this Startup Repair becomes Automatic Repair and there are also some slightly difference in the process too, just follow the link listed below.

#How To Use Startup Repair?

First of all this feature isn’t like the other once, because you can’t quickly open it by just clicking on something.

But the greatest thing what I loved about it features is, it’s easy to use and opening it isn’t that hard either.

So, first I’m gonna instruct you about, how to open this feature and then I’ll teach you how to use it because there are three different methods what we do use according to our conditions as you can see:

  1. Open it by, when your computers automatically show’s you Windows Error Recovery screen.
  2. Open it by using Advance Boot Options.
  3. Open it by Windows Installer Disc or Bootable Windows Pen drive.

The reason behind I’ve written all these different methods in this article because normally you use this tool when your windows operating system isn’t in that condition to open itself.

So, the first one will help you to quickly access this feature and just like most of the times this first method won’t works and that’s why you’ll need to use the second one.

Now you’re wondering about, why I have written one more extra method. The answer is, sometimes the first and second one both methods won’t work because of some corrupted windows files. And that’s where the third method comes and we use it with the help of a Windows disc or a Windows USB Pendrive.

So, whatever the methods is useful for you, just use it to open this feature and after that, I’ll show you how to use this feature.

#Method 1 – Open Startup Repair By Windows Error Recovery Screen.

In Windows 7 and Windows Vista theirs a great feature to show you a windows error recovery screen when your operating system having some problem to start itself normally.

This dialog box will give two options and by selecting the first “launch startup repair (recommended)” option, you can easily open this startup feature.

This option will show automatically: 

In case you can’t see any option like the given picture below then you can manually open it by using the next method.

This method will directly take you to the startup repair process and if you’ve successful reached on that process then your computer automatic starts to repair itself and you don’t need to do anything thing in that window.

Sometimes it will ask you to do a system restore and you’ll just need to click on “OK” because it only shows when a normal fix up won’t works on your PC.

#Method 2 – Open Startup Repair By Advance Boot Options.

The Advanced Boot Options display will let you open your Windows in the advanced troubleshooting mode. You’ll need to use the first option from that boot screen options.

So, Turn OFF your computer or laptop’s power completely by shutting it down and after that, you’ll need to power it up again, and now in the middle of your computer’s startup, just keep hitting the F8 key again and again until you’ve see the Advanced Boot Options screen just like the screenshot attached below.

If you can’t find any option like this then the only and last thing what you can try is to open it by windows setup so, move to the next method.

If you’ve successfully opened your computer’s advanced boot options, then now you’ll need to select the first option named “repair your computer” and it will take to you the system recovery option by showing the windows is loading files process…

After that, it will ask you to confirm your language and keyboard support, just select your language and type of keyboard what you’re using.

If don’t know what type of keyboard you are using then you can directly click on next button to skip this step with the default setting.

After the language and keyboard selection, it will show you the second options to choose your ‘user account name’ which you’ve wanted to repair.

So, select your user and click on next. This second option only shows on your screen if your operating system’s having more than 1 user account. Or otherwise, it will show you the system recovery options menu look like the picture given below.

Select the startup repair to open it and after that, it will automatically fix your PC.

Sometimes it will ask you to do a system restore, you’ll just need to click on “restore” button because a normal fix-up can’t work on your PC and that’s why it needs to restore your windows to the earlier time.

#Method 3 – Open Startup Repair By Windows Setup Disc Or USB.

To start the ‘startup utility’ you’ll need to use your Windows setup disk to use this feature and I only and only suggest you to use your Bootable Disc or Bootable Pen drive according to your computer’s current installed operating system like, use Windows 7 setup disc if you having Windows 7 installed in your PC and use Windows Vista setup disk if you’re using Windows Vista in your computer.

  1. First, you’ll need to boot your windows Disk or USB by the boot menu or boot sequence priority. If you don’t know how to do this then these given link below will help you to boot your disk or flash drive.

  1. Second, after booting click on “press any key to boot from CD or DVD” to boot windows setup disk or USB.
  2. Right after when the booting’s done you’ll able the see the setup’s first menu option and in that options you’ll need to Click on Next and after that click on “repair your computer” to starts your startup repair function.

Now the system recovery options tool starts to search your hard drive to find any Windows installations.

So, you don’t need to do anything here, just wait and It will automatically show your installed windows and If it won’t shows any windows listing in the first box then you can’t use this startup repair because your hard disk got inactive and you’ll need to reactivate it by using some command in cmd.

After when it shows you your installed windows, then you’ll just need to select it and click on next button to continue.

Note: It’s possible the drive letter of your windows installation does not match the drive letter what you know where your Windows was installed.

After that, click on the first option “startup repair” to use that utility tool and it will automatically fix your PC.

Sometimes it will ask you to do a system restore, you’ll just need to click on “restore” button because a normal fix-up can’t work on your PC and that’s why it needs to restore your windows to the earlier time.
