Very important stuff on drive? Did you make a backup already? If not ... make a backup or copy important files to usb stick or usb drive.

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
How do I copy using command prompt?

How do I copy using command prompt?
Who told you to do it with command prompt? You can do it with a linux live cd. Or using this procedure:
  1. In command prompt type: NOTEPAD (and press enter).
  2. File->open. Browse to the stuff you want to copy. Right click on it then "copy"
  3. browse to the folder on usb stick you want to copy to. Then right click and "paste"
you understand?

Simply want to copy 1 file:
Code:
copy  c:\bcd_e.txt   g:\
If G is drive letter of usb volume

I got the file but all it said was: the boot configuration data score could not be opened. The system cannot find the file specified.
