It appears you've gotten the Repair to recognize the installation, now work through all of the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot
to try to get it to start. You must check for infection since a badly infected system will not repair and boot until it is cleaned up.
I really appreciate you taking the time to help me <3
intergrated NIC-> enabled w/PXE
Miscellaneous Devices->enable external usb port checked, enable module Bay checked
function key behavior-> Multimedia key first is active
Since I last posted I tried a few things. I attempted del the mismatched bcd and rebuild it that resulted in the activation of the recovery drive D: recovering some missing stuff , like the locale and it became the active partition. I then set the active partition back to c: which is my os. windows automatically recognized that it was the correct install path and updated the info in the operating system list in the system repair box. found an error fixed it and told me to restart. I did.
(this was after I copied bootmgr.efi, bootmgr, Winload.exe, reg.exe, windowsanytimeupgrade(all3files),entirebootfolder and wininit.exe) from my laptop to a usb-> from usb to the correct locations on the c: of the laptop with the issues)
Now get the error message at startup about missing or corrupt regisrty file
