To solve this problem you have to adjust the BCD file (bootmenu) in HP_RECOVERY partition. Your HP_RECOVERY partition is now called E. Please do this Elevated Command Prompt
Code:
bcdedit  /store   E:\boot\bcd  /enum  all
and post output

Good you got it to work.

I am the same as you with this..I am new to Win 7 restoration too...I only thought I might be able to help as I had, only days before, finished doing exactly what you had done.

Your english is not bad!! far from it it is good, but it is noticeable that you are not an native english speaker, so that is always possible cause for confusion. I know this, I see it all the time here at home with my girlfriend she is Indian, and she is now 50 years old and has been in England since she was sent here to be married when she was 17. And she still has trouble and makes mistakes..she was taught English in India...her brother was an English Literature professor at a University near Agra, and she still has difficulty some time. So no criticism meant in any way, just saying that I could understand if there was issues with us not getting our meanings across.

I won't even attempt Hindi writing, and can only manage a couple of spoken words ..

Ap Ka Swagat Hai


Threads never really close until a moderator shuts them down .
Sometimes better to start a new thread, ..some forums seem to have different ideas about this.

Very often you will get a better reply asking again in an old thread simply because contributors of that old thread will generally get an e-mail notification and come and have a look.
If you post a new thread, it may not be seen by people that may just know as the new thread may get pushed down the list and not seen.

So ask away. Is my answer..i can't say I can help..I am no more advanced than you are in this...This is my first Windows computer since 2004.

Did you already clone to new drive?
Post screenshot of disk management please.

Most of the time marking the RECOVERY partition active forces pc to boot from that partition. So mark it active and test. After testing mark original partition ACTIVE again.

Partition - Mark as Active . You have to use METHOD 2 because win7 doesn't boot after setting RECOVERY partition ACTIVE!!!!
