Windows 7 Startup Repair Isn't Working - Help Me Boot!

I have a computer with Windows 7 that won't boot. I'm not sure if it's a bad Windows Update, or because Microsoft CRM Online just transitioned to Office 365 and we had to uninstall/reinstall a bunch of CRM stuff yesterday. Regardless, I'm not able to boot.

Windows Startup Repair failed. It says we have no System Restore Points. I don't want to do a factory restore of the computer and wipe the drive. Our only course of action at this point is the command prompt. I have no idea what to type into the command prompt...

Please help!

One option that worked for me was to start Windows Install, but before proceeding with it, select Upgrade even though you are not upgrading the O/S. it worked for me yesterday.

I didn't even think about booting from a Windows 7 CD. Thanks for being my voice of reason in times of chaos. :-)
