Hey experts.
I hope someone can answer this question before i find the answer.  There is a command you can run that stops windows 7 from booting up with the automatic startup repari.  I have used it before and cant seem to find it....
What i got is a windows 7 machine that continues to boot to the startup repair. I wanna disable that so i can see what is failing.

    According to busterh, it says:-

    "I've been searching for this all day. I finally found the answer.

    At the elevated Command prompt (cmd) enter the following:

    bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No

    This will disable Startup Repair from automatically booting when there is a problem.

    However, BEWARE.....

    You'll have to get back into Windows as and Admin to re-enable it... just change the No to Yes."

    I do not see that as being fair to relocate the points.
