So you suggest to buy an external HDD and store the WHOLE DATA on it?

@Kaktussoft: yes, the file winload.exe exists
I don't know if chkdsk shown any problems, but after running it Windows still runs properly...

PS. bcdedit.txt in attachment (it's in Polish, but just compare it to the file in your language and you'll find out what the headlines mean)
How did you make your system bootable???? And what a mess in bcdstore. It looks like you added WIN7 using BCDBOOT or BOOTREC/SCANOS. Did you?

I don't know what it means and what it does, so probably I didn't add WIN7 using BCDBOOT or BOOTREC/SCANOS

Change your chipset Sata drive controller type from AHCI to IDE. That fixed my problem.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

The Windows recovery disk didn't find anything wrong. I tried many suggestions that did not work. What ended up working was the following.

1-Used an Ubuntu live USB stick to boot into Ubuntu. (Sorry Microsoft...)
2-Opened up the file system and looked in boot.
3-Deleted BCD
4-Rebooted using the Windows recovery disk.
5-NOW it finds a problem, asks if I want to fix it and reboot.
6-Say yes. Windows loads like nothing ever happened.

This took less than 5 minutes to fix this way after a couple of hours of trying other "solutions"
