Be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.


To remedy this first the Extended must be converted to a Primary, have a look at Option One of this first tutorial linked below.
Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD



Then you will need to use this tutorial to add/create the boot files to the C: partition.
Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD


good point! I didn't notice C was a logical partition
