You only have one HD, correct? We can assume then that Partition 2 is Windows 7 and would be marked Active if Recovery Partition was not marked Active at factory, remains so, and will not repair with 3 separate Startup Repairs with reboots.
Thanks for the above , checked partitions as you quoted:
partition 1 :Type 27 :HiddenYes:Active :No
offset in bytes :1048576
Volume 2 D label=Win_RE NTFS 9GB status:Healthy
partition2 :Type07 :Hidden No : Active Yes
offset in bytes : 10487232000
Volume 1 C label=Windows7 NTFS 455GB status:Healthy
yes only have 1 HD
so guess now proceed , close prompt & see if any repair offered & if not then try reboot 3 tims from recovery options ? thanks again
