Why not do a clean install instead of recovery? Do you want all the bloatware?

Clean Install Windows 7
Be sure you have a valid product key, it's on a COA sticker on machine.
You need Windows 7 home premium. You want 32 or 64 bits? What language?
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 ISO
English x86: X17-58996.iso (32bits)
English x64: X17-58997.iso (64 bits)

How do I find out if the right partition is active (it should be - the PC worked before) if the PC refuses to boot?

I created a system repair disc on my stationary PC , but unfortunately it will not work with my laptop, since the repair disc is a 64 bit and my laptop can only handle 32 bit. My neighbour has a PC with WIN XP on it - can I use it to create a system repair disc and try it on my laptop? If so, how a system rep. disc is created on a PC with WIN XP?

Download and burn using imgburn for example. Boot from it and do Startup Repair

Hi again, this is like reading Kafka s castle. If everything else fails, Ill follow your advice (answer no 11) although a part of the factory bloatware on my stationery PC Id like to keep as e. g. a Micr Office 2010 and also an imaging software, which Id like to continue to use, my regular Microsoft office bought 2003 does not work satisfactorily with some files.

Now to my Missing Boot Magr problem on my laptop: I downloaded the ISO file, burnt it without problems and booted it. Everyrhing went fine, right after language selection I selected Repair computer - it continued to progress for a short while, but hen got stuck at the startup repair.

Message: Starup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.
Problem signature:
Problem events name: Startup repair offline
Problem signature 01 6.1.7600.16385
Problem sign o2 same as above
03 unknown
04 - 1
05 External media
06 1
07 MissingBoot Manager
Locale ID 1033

It then urges me top restart computer, only to bring forward Boot Mgr Missing again upon restart. The odd thing is that the repair process did not list the WIN 7 that was installed before, it s all empty, but probably the manufacturers recovery discs deleted the previous Windows 7 when I tried to recover and then and did not succeed in recovering the OS. So, any ideas what what next?

Enter the recovery environment again on laptop with missing bootmgr. Select "command prompt"

Code:
diskpart
list disks  (how many disks? Ignore the usb stick)
select disk 0 (or 1. previous command displayed the size of disk, so you know what number of harddisk is)
list part
list vol
exit
Show us the output or explain what you see.

Enter the recovery environment again on laptop with missing bootmgr. Select "command prompt"
Code:
dir  c:\users
dir  d:\users
dir  e:\users
and so on. What is drive letter of disk with folder "users"? Does it show your account name?

Forget about X, it's a ram drive from recovery environment.
C is window 7.

Sure disk 0 is the main harddrive.. it has 2 partitions size 232GB? 1 partition is 232GB in size, the other is 16MB?

what the heck is G?
Code:
dir c:\
dir e:\
dir f:\
dir g:\
Is C your windows partition?

Code:
diskpart
select  vol  c
detail partition
exit
Give me the details

Prove C is the Windows 7 volume!

Code:
dir  c:\windows
dir  "c:\Program Files"
dir  c:\users
All those folders exist? c:\users shows your logon name?
