Windows 7 Logon - NO users - Flashing screen.
Posted on 2011-09-28
Os: Win7 Home Premium 64
Issue: System boots to logon screen. No users profiles shown (should be 5). Screen flashes periodicaly.
Startup repair from PC - no difference
Repair from DVD - no difference
Chkdsk - passed
Boot into safe mode - no difference
Copy winlogon from dvd to pc - no difference
Tried SFC /scannow from cmd prompt off of dvd's repair mode, message says there's pending repair, to reboot and let repair complete and try sfc again. I do this and the repair doesn't seem to complete. SFC /scannow can not run.
I need to get this machine back to the point where users can click on their profile icon and logon, without reinstalling everything.
