Hello,
I merged my catroot and catroot2 folders in Windows 7 and now it cannot boot?

I know I screwed up my pc buy is there any way to fix it? I was looking a guide in youtube because I got an error while trying to play halo 2 and it said I had to rename my catroot folder en system 32 to catroot2 but I already had the 2 folders and I tried to merge them, everything was working correctly until turned off my laptop and today it won't boot, it shows the bsod and then it says start windows and repair problems but it doesn't work and if I choose to start windows normally it just restarts.

Help me please, is my hdd fu...d? Will I loose everything?

You need to repair your system using Windows 7 installation CD/DVD.
Here's the explanation on how to achieve this:

Look, I I entered the restoration options of Acer and it worked, but but now when I start my pc the only account available is administrator and it says blocked and when I hit enter it says this account is blocked, contact the administrator of the system
