Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965. Originally loaded with Vista Home, upgraded to Windows 7 with the option that came with the laptop when purchased on September 09. Upgrade to Win 7 was flawless.
Today the computer shutdown and restarted running the Startup Repair console. After scanning the system for problem it came back with the following report and log file.

I tried booting into Safe Mode at Windows startup with the F8 key.
Safe Mode would not start, the Startup Repair console started again.
Tried to start up with Last Known Good Configuration. Same result.
Tried to run the System Restore from the advanced system recovery and support tools available from within the startup repair console. There were no restore points created on the system drive.
From the Command Prompt I tried to run c:\bootrec /fixmbr. It ran successfully but did not solve the problem.
I created new recovery disks after I successfully upgraded to Windows 7, but I am afraid they are identical to the original recovery disks I created when the system was brand new, so I am reluctant to use the System Image Recovery tool available in the System Recovery Options because I believe it will take the computer back to the factory image of Vista. Not to mention losing all the data and having to reinstall the upgrade to Windows 7.
If anyone has any solid solutions to repairing a Corrupt Registry in Windows 7, I would be very grateful for a solution.
