Windows 7: Cannot boot after deleting old windows7 partition.. White cursor

I should have pointed out that the tool to write to flash stick or burn to DVD is with the ISO downloads in Steps 1 and 2 in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Make sure Win7 partition/HD remains set first HD to boot and marked Active. Unplug other HD.

the bsod error I'm getting is "*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A97E8, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000, 0x0000000000)

when I do the "attrib c:\bootmgr" command now it says "A SHR C:\bootmgr"

What is the SATA controller setting in BIOS?

Have you caught up with all the steps yet? What happened with PW CD "Rebuild MBR" command?

My SATA controller setting is ACHI,

I reset the BIOS settings to their optimized defaults a couple days ago

OK so just to be sure I've done all the steps:

-HDD is physically disconnected
-in PWCD only the SSD is present now, and the status is set to "Active"
-selected the only disk available now (the SSD) and ran "rebuild mbr"
-My boot order is:
#1: Blu-ray Drive
#2: SSD
#3: empty
-ran CHKDSK C: and got no errors
-when I run startup repair now it says it could not detect a problem
-I ran the memory diagnostics tool but need to be able to log in to see if there are any errors I think
-I ran Kaktussoft's bootsector commands and it completed successfully, I not longer get the "missing bootmgr" error. Also I can see that bootmgr is in c: when I use PW to explore the partition, it wasn't there before

now I just get this damn BSOD

Update:

When I enter "bootrec.exe /ScanOs" into the command prompt it say there are 0 identified Windows installations

Is there any chance the SATA controller had been set to IDE or other before you reset BIOS to defaults? Do you remember the setting when you installed to SSD?

Try shrinking the SSD by 200mb from the left using PW CD, create a Primary NTFS partition labeled System Reserved, mark Active, then run the 3 separate repairs.

Make sure SSD is set first to boot and HD unplugged.

Did win7 boot succesfully after changing the settings?
change that setting to IDE or ATA (temporary) and test if it boots now
