Windows won’t start, startup repair cannot repair automatically.
First off, I have a Dell Optiplex 990 - Windows 7 Pro, which wasn’t listed...not a 775. Worked fine last night, no changes to hardware or software, shutdown normally without issues. Today, will not load windows.
Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

Tried to restore from previous known good restore point and Windows fails before I can get there.
Fails when attempting to boot in safe mode, with networking, and with command prompt.
I don’t have a disc as I bought the pc used, but I have a bootable Windows 7 Pro usb that I can boot from.
Tried rebuild boot command found in other threads, it says it finds 0 copies of Windows.
I could completely reload windows, but most foolishly my restore points are only in Windows. I have most or my important info backed up on external hard drive, but most foolishly, I don’t believe I have any restores backed up outside of the internal drive.
Hopefully there is a Windows wizard who can give me advice to work a little magic and give me the opportunity to save an off-site restore from now on. I have a lot of big programs I really would rather not have to spend the time reinstalling if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help.
