comment How to fix missing DLLs and corrupt system files after updating Windows-7?
This indeed was the problem. All DLLs like api-ms-win-downlevel-xxxx.dll were missing, which are a total of 9 DLLs. I copied them from another fine-working Windows-7 (64-bit) and pasted them in my C:\Windows\system32 folder, and everything is OK now!

comment How to fix missing DLLs and corrupt system files after updating Windows-7?
@Moab Since a total reinstall is absolutely not an option, it seems that my only chance is to wait for help on a manual repair of the systems files, or try and do it on my own.

@vembutech I have already seen the KB article that sent (I've linked it in my question), and details in that article are not enough to do the repair. The aobut.com links had no helpful information either. Thanks anyway though :)

So, you are confirming my concern about the windows activation, right? If you are correct, then the "repair installation" is not an option either! Because Microsoft has no support in my country and if I loose my genuine activation, it is highly unlikely that I will be able to activate it again (using phone, or internet)!

I do have the recovery disc for my laptop. I have performed the recovery a long time before, and as you said it will wipe out all of my data and programs back to the factory state! This will fix the Windows problem, but then I have to spend a LOT of time restoring everything back! This is clearly not an option for me!

comment Windows-XP VM fails to boot after import in VirtualBox-4.x
I tried it and it still doesn't boot. I uninstalled all USB devices in Device Manager, shut down the system and disabled USB support in VirtualBox, then started the VM but it still doesn't boot. I think we are not on the right path. What can I do in "Safe Mode" to find out what caused the problem in the last "Normal" boot that failed? Are there any system-logs in Windows-XP that tells what caused the problem?

I did run these commands on the target OS in "Safe Mode", but there were no greyed/faded devices! What can I do in "Safe Mode" to find out what caused the problem in the last "Normal" boot that failed?

Can't I do this work only on the target guest, instead of doing it on the first and then exporting and so on ... ?
