Thanks for the help mate. Thing is yes I can access the boot manager, but the thing is it shows only one option- windows home premium(recovered). The recovery has gone out of it. this may have caused because i have used FixMbr option once earlier. is there a way to add the recovery option to the boot manager??

If your recovery partition contains the appropriate boot files like many do, then you can try booting directly into that partition.
You can use Hirens boot disc to attempt to directly boot into a partition.
Typically Hiren's itself will occupy the first "partition" number in its listing then choose the partition after that corresponding to your recovery partition.
Download Hiren
(I have an ACER PC which allows this)

Maybe it s because disk where is located recovery partition is Dynamic ?
I don t know if Hiren is able to show it. If it can, maybe it can also tranform dynamic disk to basic w/o loss.
If no, EASUS partition manager (home edition : free) can.
Once disk transformed in basic, you can set recovery partition to primary (like system one with win 7), and reset this recovery partition to active.
reboot.
