So safe mode showed a lot of drivers scrolling over screen. Last line shown was CLASSPNP.SYS?
After that it did freeze forever (wait 4 minutes)?
Here's a picture of the screen the last couple are my security that I got a couple of hours before the problem, is this the issue?
After that screen it freezes forever?

Did you install AVG recently?

You have the black screen "no boot" errors since 11 jan... see your Post #1. How were you able to install AVG "a couple of hours before "?

Totally confused.

But AVG was installed just before the problems started?

Try system restore and go back in time so AVG is gone!

Do you mean wiping whole internal disk? Off course win7 is gone afterwards.

But try F8->repair your computer->command prompt. then:
Code:
diskpart
select disk 0
list part
I this example I assume there are 3 partitions listed.
Code:
select disk 0
select part 0
detail part
select part 1
detail part
select part 2
detail part
So select all partitions and display the details. Which one is ACTIVE? What are the sizes of the partitions ("list part" command shows it).

1500MB is 1.5GB ... far too small for RECOVERY. 15GB is usual size for recovery. Anyway partition 1 is active.

Code:
bcdedit/enum all > c:\bcd_c.txt

Code:
bcdedit/enum all /store e:\boot\bcd > c:\bcd_e.txt
copy c:\bcd_c.txt and c:\bcd_e.txt files to usb stick. Connect usb stick to working machine and post both files
