Windows 7: A BSOD that breaks my heart

You have the steps using Partition Wizard correct for marking active the OS partition to run Rebuild MBR and if necessary 3 Startup Repairs.

But I also said in my original post to first Rebuild MBR and run 3 Startup Repairs on the Recovery partition - since it's already marked Active and may have held the System boot files all along.

Please fill in your System Specs in the bottom left corner of your posts.

We need to determine if per chance your BIOS is EFI and has somehow been changed to Legacy BIOS. Can you boot into BIOS setup to see if there are any EFI settings on the various tabs? No need to change anything yet, just report back this information. Also report back the Boot order priority.

Ok I will get back on that info , since I dont have my lappy with me -im at work. Maybe today evening IST

I had made the partition 3 active using DISKPART for the 3 step process, but Im not sure. In either case using PW Ill mark Recovery active -rebuild MBR and do the 3 step thing.

If that fails then the same for OS partition - Is that right ?

Yes, unless you moved the Active flag to the Recovery partition or tried to run Recovery which failed which might have set it Active, we have to assume it is the System Partition or it wouldn't be Active. So you'd first try repairing or rewriting the System boot files there with Rebuild MBR and if 3 Startup Repairs.

If that fails, move the Active flag to the OS partition itself to Rebuild MBR and run 3 Startup Repairs.

I am unsure why your 125 mb Hidden OEM partition is in FAT format and only is using 5mb unless its because the files are hidden. But we can't assume it was the boot partition given all of these circumstances.

Sorry, please clarify.

By now you've probably understood what a colossal noob I am.

Nevertheless what is System Partition.

Ill do one thing, as soon as I get home Ill upload a PW camshot once again, for there you can guide me.

System partition is where the System boot files reside, the partition which is booting Win7. Some OEM's make the Recovery partition the System partition, which we have to assume is the case here since it has the Active flag which should only be on the System partition. So try to Rebuild and Repair with the Active flag on Recovery first.

Then if it won't start even after 3 separate Startup Repairs with reboots, move the Active flag to the OS partition, Rebuild and Repair x3 again.

Why would the PW camshot be different than it was earlier? If so then we do need to see it again.

Did you change the Active partition at any time. Did you try running Recovery which failed?

Gregrocker I ran the 32bit Dell Diagnostics from the bundled disk, I ran the hard disk test - complete. All test went fine with no errors except for the seek test which went into an infinite loop on the last block, but before that the seek test reported no errors.I pressed escape and continued with the other two tests i.e smart test & verify test, which also reported no errors.

GregRocker heres the latest camshot of PW. Its shows the OS partition to be active, I rebuilt the MBR and set recovery as active.How do I proceed..

Hello Viraj .... as it is the OS partition that is marked as active, now run Startup Repair, for three times, with restarts in between every single run.

Then try to boot the computer.

If it failed, mark the recovery partition as active, following the method three of Partition - Mark as Active. Then again run Startup Repair for three times, with restarts in between every single run.

Let us know the results.

Gregrocker, Arc; I'm typing this through my Dell Lappy. It works just fine. Your guys are Gods. It works and my Diary reads. I marked the recovery partition as active and ran the 3 step repair.
I got a working W7 x64 Installation CD today.

Gregrocker, I may have pissed you but after 8 hours of Web Dev coding in what could be called a white collar sweat shop coupled with sleepless nights and my sheer anxiety problems meant I simply could not think straight.My mind was jacked.

That diary had something really important, someone who I had strong feelings for.
Hence the title.

Thanks Everyone who helped me. GregRocker, Arc Thanks Once Again !

OK Viraj. I told you that my guru Gregrocker has solution for any odd situation.

If you are satisfied with the results, mark this thread as solved, so that it may be easily indexed for any other person suffering a similar problem; and to recognize the man who made it.

EDIT: Now I know why you were so impatient to recover the diary. Whenever I see that strong feeling, it makes me feel extremely good, heavenly. Best of luck with your strong feelings. You too the man!
