Hi Shermstein,

Welcome to Microsoft Answers.

As the issue you are facing appears during the booting process, I would suggest you to perform a startup repair and check if the issue gets resolved -

To do a startup repair follow the below mentioned steps:

1.      Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer using the computer's power button.

2.      Do one of the following:

o    If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

o    If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.

3.      On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter. (If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options use the disc to do the repair as mentioned below, or your network administrator has turned them off.)

4.      Select a keyboard layout, and then click next.

5.      On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.

 

To open the System Recovery Options menu using a system repair disc or a Windows 7 installation disc

If your computer's system is severely damaged and you cannot access the System Recovery Options menu on your computer, you can access it using the Windows 7 installation disc or a system repair disc you created earlier.

To use this method, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the disc.

1.      Insert the disc.

2.      Restart your computer using the computer's power button.

3.      If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

o    If your computer isn't configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You may need to change your computer's BIOS settings. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

4.      Choose your language settings, and then click next.

5.      If you are using the Windows installation disc, click Repair your computer.

6.      Select the Windows installation you want to repair, and then click next.

7.      On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.

Follow the below mentioned link to use the repair option in recovery console:
