Windows 7: Can I use this to restore my boot from System Image Recovery ?

Can I use this to restore my boot from System Image Recovery ?

Hi guys, I have a problem with my Windows 7 x64 installation. I have played with a Playstation3 HDD and I have really screwed my Windows 7 partition table.

I have tried booting with the setup dvd and tried everything there (startup repair, bootfix from cmd, etc) but nothing seems to work.

I have next booted Hiren's Live XP and I can see my partitions (btw what is the small 100mb partition called system reserved?). I have found a folder called Recovery on my boot partition which contains a large file called winre.wim, can I use this to restore my boot from System Image Recovery ? If yes, how do I do that? (remember that win setup doesn't see my partitions) I have copied the whole recovery folder to an usb stick, but when I get to System Image recovery it doesn't find it...

Please help!

Thanks in advance.

LE: (thanks mod for proper edit of the post)

You can't boot into Windows? If so post a screen shot of your disk management window.

As long as your recovery partition ( from the factory ) is still intact, you can download and run this recovery disk..

Boot Repair CD, press Shift F10, use Diskpart commands to make sure Windows 7 partition is marked Active: Partition - Mark as Active - Windows 7 Forums.URL

Now boot back into CD, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Windows 7 starts up.
