Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically

My new laptop has had this problem twice since I bought it. The first time I
had to use the recovery disk. Do you think it is a Vista problem or a
hardware problem? I don't want to lose all of my files AGAIN! Is there any
way to save them or is there a fix other than reinstalling the OS? I've
tried all of recovery tools that can repair the computer without deleting my
files but none have worked. Here is what Startup Repair gives as details of
the problem:

Problem Event Name: StartupRepairV2
Problem Signature 01: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6000.16386
Problem Signature 03: 6
Problem Signature 04: 1507351
Problem Signature 05: CorruptFile
Problem Signature 06: CorruptFile
Problem Signature 07: 3221226017
Problem Signature 08: 1
Problem Signature 09: WrpRepair
Problem Signature 10: 0
OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033


Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically


Hey!

I registered just to post here. I have the exact same problem with the
same diagnostic and i still didn't fix the problem! I don't have the
vista installation cd (it was already installed), so i can't do the
install repair. Can some please help me? I have very important documents
and don't wanna lose them!

Thank you

RE: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically

I was wondering if anyone had an answer to this problem as I am experiencing
the same issue? Is it is possible to fix without losing my files? I cannot
get the computer even boot in safe mode.

Please help.

Re: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically


I got my second customer yesterday ,who's profile folder and other
folders (containing the 'My documents' and 'My picture' folders) have
been whiped by Vista itself. So this is not a standalone incident ,but
recurrent.
This happens due to auto-repair (Vista Startup Repair) functions of
vista which occurs on a bad install of the updates or disk problems.
The install of the vista updates occurs by default at boot time.
The actual problem message is :
' Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically '
Details :
problem event name: startup repair v2
problem signature 01: failover
problem signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6000.16386 problem signature
03: 6 problem signature 04: 655370 problem signature 05: no root cause
problem signature 06: no root cause problem signature 07: 0 problem
signature 08: 2 problem signature 09: wrp repair problem signature 10: 2
OS version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1 local ID: 1033

Example : '_http://neosmart.net/forums/showthread.php?p=7200_'
(http://neosmart.net/forums/showthread.php?p=7200)

So be warned and take backups , also try to put your personal
docs/folders/files OUTSIDE your profile folder ,preferably on another
partition ,even better another drive , even better a NAS !

_To_get_the_customer_helped_(getting_personal_data _back):_
-DO NOT EXECUTE MANUFACTERERS REPAIR (available from vista repair
console)
-STOP WORKING ON THE DRIVE CONTAINING YOUR VISTA INSTALL (the more you
work on it ,the more things won't be recovered)
-If possible take disk image (Norton ghost 11,Acronis Trueimage,etc.)
from the problem disk before doiing the recovery and reinstall.
-Launch file recovery tools (GetDataBack NTFS,EasyRecovery,Disk
Commander,O&O Recovery,etc.) from other pc or livecd/dvd to extract
personal data

_Getting_VISTA_back_running_:_
-or choose MANUFACTERERS repair option in repair console (if no DVD
give with the pc)
-or use DVD to reinstall VISTA on the pc.


You can try repairing system files and so by trying to recover and
reinstall the files only (example use sfc /scannow ,etc : 'Some Windows
Vista functions may not work, or Windows Vista may stop responding'
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833) ) .But chances are you'll end
up installing the whole pc again and loose loads of time.

So final conclusion :
'_http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOh6Nh8w6f8_'

Hope this'll help for you ...

Re: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically

I have moved the default location that I save my files to since the early
Beta builds.
Generally it is on a different HDD or partition.
I do not like my data overwritten when I reinstall an OS.

Re: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically


I don't know if this is going to work yet, but it seems hopeful....

I was having the same problem of the startup tool failing over and over
again after SP1 install. After trying just about every option in
SafeMode, it seems that the one (I don't remember the verbiage exactly)
'Return to the last known working configuration (advanced)' is what is
working.

It's the only option that has gotten me past the initial windows launch
and then blue screen and startup tool. When I used this, it took me
to the "swirly" vista background and now is installing stage 2 of the
SP.

Just wanted to share that in case it's helpful for anyone else who
might be on the same freak-out mode as I am at the thought of losing my
data.

Re: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically


So after Stage 2 of SP1 was done, it rebooted again. BSOD, and then the
next reboot took me to a safemode-type screen where I chose the repair
option.

This got me back to the Windows failed launch and the Startup Repair
"Tool" which failed miserably. It also helpfully pointed out the root
cause as being a recent upgrade. DUH!

Using the "Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)" from the F8 safe
mode screen is now ending in BSOD. Still need stage 3 of SP1. Or to
go back to stage 0, that would be fine, too, at this point.

Re: Vista Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically


Hold on (long reading but it's worth it) : this story didn't end (I
hoped it did ,but it didn't :mad. This machine was a Packard Bell ,for
which this company refused to hand me over the install DVD. So I fetched
an Vista OEM SP1 from the net. I advise NEVER to buy a packard bell !
Worst support ever !


Nice install guideline doc over here : 'Clean Vista install WITH NO
ACTIVATION - Notebook Forums and Laptop Discussion'
(http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=120228)

During the reinstall of this machine I found some VERY interesting
facts :

The re-installation ALWAYS interrupted with either BLUES SCREENS OF
DEATH (BSOD) , or were interrupted during the expanding phase of the
files.
Doubting that I had a good source ,I burned over and over the same iso
again ,with all possible variations (change of
reader,cable,burnsoft,medium,burnspeeds,etc ..) .
After browsing numerous hours the web , I came to the conclusion that
this must be a hardware problem.

So I removed 1 memory bar (there were 2 present of 1Gb) ,and .... :

NOW THE INSTALLATION PROCEEDED ,AND FINALIZED


Hmm .. did I say to myself : A beginners error ? Just a memory hardware
error ?
Strange ,because during all other activities with the livecd/dvd ,were
memory is intensively used ,this problem didn't occur ?
So next step : Testing the memory

And what shows : No error reported by mem check tools whatsoever. I
launched 5 different mem check tools.

Hmm even stranger : Conclusion Vista SP1 installation doesn't like 2
bars of memory (or doesn't like the management of the memory) .

Coming to the final conclusion : *The initial problem of the VISTA
corruption occurs on the installation of a certain update (yet unclear
if only with SP1 or another) ,together with a certain chipset (unknown
which ones) AND THE PRESENCE OF 2 MEMORY BARS !!! During this upgrade-or
install- ,a BSOD will occur or the upgrade will fail. But when a repair
will be executed afterwards ,it will fail also because of the presence
of these 2 memory bars. As a result ,many people will launch several
repairs ,ending up with a total loss vista install.

*SO :
WHENEVER INSTALLING SP1-and the following updates- (TROUGH CLEAN
INSTALL OR TROUGH UPGRADE ) MAKE SURE ONLY 1 MEMORY BAR IS PRESENT IN
YOUR SYSTEM. VISTA DOES HAVE ISSUES WITH MEMORY MANAGEMENT OF CERTAIN
BIOS OR CHIPSETS. ONCE YOU'VE DOWNLOADED ALL THE POSSIBLE UPDATES ,YOU
MAY REINSTALL THE SECOND MEMORY BAR.
TO BE SURE ,YOU CAN RUN AFTERWARDS -AFTER THE INSTALL OF ALL UPDATES-
THE 'MEMORY DIAGNOSTIC TOOL' (%SystemRoot%\System32\MdSched.exe)

I hope this might help some of you. I've spent 18h hours to conclude
this using the trial and error method.

Kind regards,

K.

Thank you MS for giving me this extra work,I will never run out of
business thanks to you. This reminds me of the days of Windows 3.11 ...

You sure had a strange problem, but it must be more than just 2 sticks of
memory. I've done a couple of clean installs and upgrades of vista OS on a
couple of machines and both have 2 sticks of memory, never had any problems
at all. At least you got through it o.k. Have a great day...
