Unable to boot following BSOD: "Loading operating system" hang
Last night, my computer (specification in signature) was running the folding@home client on both cores (nothing unusual about that) among other things and suffered a BSOD. After dumping something (memory or page file?), it restarted - it didn't stay on the screen, so I couldn't note down any information. After restarting, the computer got as far as:
Loading operating system_ Booting from CD_
At that point the screen dims (with the writing still faintly readable, and no progress is made.
I've run a Ubuntu live DVD and it sees the harddisks (both data and Windows drives) and the files are accessible.
When I attempt to repair the Windows installation via the Windows 7 DVD disc, no operating system is detected, even after loading the necessary drivers for my motherboard's RAID controller (the installation is not on a RAID-configured disk but I think the drivers may be necessary nonetheless based on my installation experience, about a year ago).
When I select "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows..." and click "Next" and then select "Startup Repair", a repair is attempted and I am told to restart the computer to complete the repairs. According to the diagnosis and repair details:
Root cause found: ----------------- The partition table does not have a valid System Partition. Repair action: Partition table repair Result: Completed successfully. Error code = 0x0 Time taken = 9282 ms --------------- ---------------
Loading operating system_
How might I go about resolving this issue?

I solved it using help I recieved for a similar problem months ago.
At the command prompt type:
Type the following, replacing c: with the drive letter of your system drive/partition and replacing # with the associated volume number - press enter after each:
bootsec /nt60 c:
bcdboot c:\windows /s c:
sel vol #
