The problem is "Space conflict between C and D". The MBR partition table makes some boundaries between the partitions, some volume related information, integrated to the machine and the system. That is corrupted, That is the source of the issue.

As per your request, we are trying to fix it, but had it been my system, I would have copied stuff and have done a clean reinstall already.

Greg's last post to you is the master guide to solve the worst cases. Follow it, best of luck.

3 separate Startup Repairs

Does I have to alternate between setting windows partitions active and run the windows repair ?

Every official Win7 installer or Repair CD has System Recovery Options.

I've already told you in my first post that the installer is provided in Step 5 of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

Gregrocker, I really appreciate you taking the time in helping me. At the moment its late night here and as it is I am thoroughly confused as to how to proceed. I am not even sure what I've done except the fact that my original BSOD issue has blown out of proportion

I have office tomorrow hence I'm off to sleep, so I will try to attempt repairs tomorrow evening i.e 7:30 pm IST. Besides Ill be having a Sat and Sun to work on it so I can follow your guide properly.

This will take some time but I will follow it patiently till the end. Again thanks for your help Gregrocker and Arc.


PS. I used the startup repair but it failed to locate a windows installation , it showed up as blank and I continued.

Place the Active flag on each of those partitions I mentioned, after which you should Rebuild MBR, try to start it and if it won't start run 3 separate Startup Repairs with reboots - no matter what they report.

I've now repeated this sequence of crucial repair steps three times. Please focus on completing the steps as they are given. If you have any questions, then ask back.

Ok Arc & Gregroocker.Please tell me If I have understood correctly.

For 3 times start-up repair with reboot :
1. Using Win 7 disk use diskpart to mark OS as active and others inactive (In console mode),then go back to GUI
2. Return to GUI (Shift+f10) & run start-up repair
3.Reboot
4. Do step 2 & 3 - two more times (do i have to do step 1 again after each reboot ? )

--Repeat marking the OS partition active, the other inactive if process does not work.--


For PW, as GregRocker said
" rightclick on the OS partition to Modify>Set to Active, click OK, then highlight its disk to run Rebuild MBR from Disk tab again. Reboot to see if it starts."

" If not run Startup Repair again up to 3 separate times with reboots" - Do i have to mark the partition active/inactive here too.


PSA reported no errors through the full test, but after completing the memtest it asked something to do and hung. Im running the 32bit diagnostics custom test for the HDD, surface test is one will report what happens.

I would use Partition Wizard to mark Active, Rebuild MBR then if necessary run 3 Startup Repairs. This is because Diskpart doesn't have Rebuild MBR, plus you already have PW CD.
