Yesterday, I turned on my PC and it never completes the booting. After the Windows symbol screen with a wheel of dots spinning, I got a black screen with the circle of dots still spinning... I can't reach the desktop. Too bad that none of those options worked.

1. No system restoration.
2. No Windows restoration, whatever keeping my files or erasing all.
3. SFC finds corrupted files, but is unable to fix them (from command prompt in restore mode X:).
4. Unable to go in safe mode.
5. Cannot rollback to Win7.

My Windows 10 is an upgrade from 7.
Any help?

If you properly activated Windows 10 during the upgrade, you have a digital entitlement on Microsoft's server. This should let you download Windows 10 installation media and reinstall Windows 10 using your Windows 7 product key.

Good, but how to downgrade Windows to 7 without losing my personal files?

If you're not trying to salvage the installation anymore, you could just boot some other OS (e.g. linux live-boot, or there might even be some recovery mode utilities already on your drive) and copy everything you want to keep from the drive?

Man, I'm good. /DukeNuken 8-)

I analysed the log srttrail and I could replace the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\dpapisrv.dll using a copy from X:\WINDOWS\system32\dpapisrv.dll (repair mode). So, I could boot in safe mode finally!

When my hard drive crashed and windows wouldn't boot anymore, I used Hiren’s BootCD to save whatever I could. It boots into a minified version of XP (that runs blazing fast on modern computers!) which you can use to manage disks and copy files around.
