No, you did not mess up. This is just the way it is. I had the same problem

My system had Tools & Recovery the other way. It was
System
C:\
Recovery
Tools

I see you have SYSTEM set as active

Set HP Recovery as active and try again to re boot. Do not hit F11

There is also this tutorial

Bootmgr is missing - Fix

Your system should be active. You may need to rebuild some of the boot files. Boot a system repair CD and run repair up to 3 times rebooting each time. Alternatively there is a command prompt fix sequence but try the first option as it is the easiest.

SYSTEM must be active in normal working system, YES. But if you want to get Hp_Recovery to boot directly you can do it by making HP_Recovery active.

Others on this forum and also on other forums have said that.

My understanding from the Ops last screenshot is that he has a fully restored system with boot problems. Making the recovery partition active will at best initiate a factory restore.
I personally prefer the command line process
Bootmgr is missing - Fix
others swear by running the repair option x3 from the system repair cd as a simpler alternative. Either way you want your system reserved partition to be active.
Does the OP want to perform a new factory restore??

Yes, I believe faridahmed DOES want to run the full Factory Restore. Hence his pressing the F11 key.
He was cloning the C:\ back merely to have a bootable OS in order to run EasyBCD.... to add the HP Recovery to the OS choices boot menu.

I was the 'original' OP for this thread. it has now moved on to helping Farid with what appears to be same problem I had. Which was not being able to get the HP_ Recovery to start up

Yes, he wants Factory Restore if I am understanding correctly, but I am guessing from location and use of English that this is not his language.
