do you know why?
Please do #7 and tell me what drive letter the win7 disk has in the recovery environment. Post the results of #7 .

Maybe hard drive has hardware failures!? System Restore doesn't find any restore points... maybe it wasn't enabled? Or maybe the drive has a hardware failure. Maybe you messed around with the win7 partition from within linux or winxp?

Thank you all for your help. The issue now is that no matter how i start the laptop (safe mode with command prompt or just normally), it just wouldnt allow me to create a restore point, it says that no restore points have been made so i tried to create one, but it doesnt let me.
at the moment i have started the laptop in safe mode with command prompt and it has taking 10 minutes to prepare the desktop, now im stuck with a black screen with words typed in white, now ive researched and it has told me to type in rstrui.exe and it should let me to create a restore point, but i thought id ask you guys and listen to your thoughts on this. What should i do?

Can you boot successfully in "normal mode"?
"has taking 10 minutes to prepare the desktop"=> "preparing desktop" is the message you see? Please post exact message.

rstui is for "rolling back" to a so called "restore point" ... not for creating one. Why would you want to create one?

Why didn't you check the harddrive yet????? Do:
Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
Any errors? All repaired?
Now we do the same stepes 1-3 again but also check blocks in use (step 4) and unallocated blocks (step 5). It can take hours! Any errors in step 4 and 5?
Code:
chkdsk/r c:
System files integrity is fine?
Code:
sfc/scannow
