Windows 7 64 bit BSOD stop error 0x0F4 - Fixed!

Hi, this is my first time posting here so hopefully somebody can help.  A few days ago I was cleaning my registry with boostspeed (I think this may be a factor and yeah, stupid move I know).  I restarted my computer only to receive a blue screen stop error.  The error reads a stop 0x00000F4. I have tried multiple ways to fix my comp, but to no avail. 
I have used the start up repair to try and restore the computer.  At first I had the option to select a restore point I had created right before cleaning my registry, but it would not let me check any boxes of ANY restore points.  I then rebooted and found that it does not find any restore points anymore.  I have tried to every method of booting, i.e. safe boot, restore to last working config, etc, with no luck.  The comp is clean from any viruses or spyware.
When I go into the command prompt from the start up repair, the drive listed is X:\.  Im not sure why this isnt C:\ anymore.  I can access my computer through regedit from the command prompt and see that everything is still there on my C:\ (all old files, settings, etc.) Also from the repair screen, when looking for restore points, it detects that there is a windows 7 installation on my drive, so it is still there.  This seems like it is trying to boot from X: or something.  I cannot run AutoRuns because I cannot get to the windows desktop in any way.  Here is a list of what start up repair tells me is wrong.

*** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8007F82B30, 0xFFFFFA8007F82B1E10, 0X0FFFFF80002FDB240)

You can replace the first few steps of my instructions with these:
1. Set your BIOS to use the DVD drive as the primary boot device.
2. Boot with your Windows 7 installation DVD or the Windows Repair DVD.
3. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …" appears.
4. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
