Bootmsg is missing. ... Please help

Hi guys, please help

I recently installed windows 7 64 bit. My hard drive used to have 2 partitions but after i install 7, i can only see 1. So i went do discmgmt and activate the other partition (i regret this sooo much now). Then i restart the laptop and run into "bootmsg is missing". I tried a lot of ways last night. Today i got a windows 7 repair disc from a friend. I am able to get to the start up repair, tried that a few times..nothing work. I looked here and decided to go with the option command prompt and follow the instruction here as to diskpart -> select disc. And the. I saw 3 partitions, 1 is 100mb, 2 is my regular 60gig, and 3 is my last one, the one that i activate. And it still wont boot. Please tell me what i need to do now. Did i miss anything?

The 100mb is the original system partition - that is the one that was marked active and contains the boot critical files.

Try marking it Active again.

Just did. Then i restart. And it came out with a windows error recovery. It gave me two options: launch start up repair and load windows normally. Nothing seems to work

1. deactivate C
2. activate the 100MB partition
3. fix the MBR

All this is best done with the bootable CD of Partition Wizard (on the left side of the webpage)

You basically need to have the OS rebuild some key boot facilities for you.
Two options: with the 100MB system reserved partition marked active using Disk Manager. Boot from the a System Repair DVD boot. (Make one from the option in the Backup & restore screen)

1) Run the startup repair (up to 3 times).

2) I prefer this option but also if option 1) fails.
Again from the system repair DVD boot. Select a command prompt.
Then type
>bootrec /fixmbr
>bootrec /fixboot
>bootrec /rebuildbcd
Reboot
