The second screenshot shows the Active flag moved to the OS partition. Did it repair when you ran Startup Repair with Active flag there? How many repairs?

Now back up your diary file externally to another HD, disk, USB stick, another PC on the network.

Or use a simple free cloud solution similar to Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with Skydrive - Windows 7 Forums which can backup and sync your files at the same time on all devices to the web, where you can also access them from anywhere.

I would also have a Win7 backup image saved externally so if C ever becomes unbootable again you can reimage it in 20 minutes and be up and running: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup.
Macrium - Image your system is a preferred alternative by many here.

It's possible your Recovery partition won't run now, although you can queue it up to see. If not then you can recover the disk space using PW CD to delete it and then Resize C into its space: Partition Wizard Resize Partition - Video Help.

Finally, if this is the original factory preinstall then it is a corrupt install to begin with, larded with sponsored bloatware and duplicate utilities which have better versions built into Win7. Most tech enthusiasts choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to get a perfect reinstall. I would delete all partitions when doing this, after making your Recovery disks so you have them on hand if ever needed.

GregRocker, I have the standard edtition of the diary that has no backup. So I manually copied all the text onto MS Word Doc.
As for whether this is a factory install, then yes..but I did reinstall using the recovery partition and that copy too has some immense amount of bloatware, which I cleaned. I will do a clean reinstall using the guide you gave.I have made the recovery disk already.

First read over the steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 carefully and ask back if you have any questions, so you fully understand it and are prepared.

There are also steps here to Clean Up Factory Bloatware

I am having a simular situation. I have multiple units to support. They have all been imaged the same. We are running over 300 units at this time. A unit that has been working properly for almost 3 years suddenly will not boot to windows. It goes to the windows restore window and loops back to restart. I have 1. replaced the hard drive with a known working one. Same result, but placing the hard drive in question into the other unit we find it works fine. 2. Reimaged 3 times. 3. Tried to boot from a windows 7 disk to no avail. 4. Called HP and they determined it was a faulty motherboard. We replaced it yesterday. Same problem. 5. Re-contacted HP. We tried all the efforts they were able to come up with. They are sending a new board as the first appears to be faulty. We should get it tomorrow or monday. 6. After we contacted HP again, we continue to try solutions. We removed partitions from the hard drive. We were then able to load Windows and make it start up and boot to windows. Rebooted several times. 7. Reimaged and the boot quit working...back to the loop. 8. By the way, we have changed all external items...kb, mouse, even power supply and monitor. It is stand alone and not connected to the internet. 9. Reimaged with an earlier image - same result. 10. Went online and downloaded latest version of bios (existing v1.10 6.09.10 to latest available) and put it on a working unit. Now we have successfully replicated the problem. Now we have 2 units, same make and model with the same image that loops from restart to windows restore screen to restart. 11. We are guessing either bios or driver conflict. I would be happy for suggestions. As I said, we have 300 units and if this is not an isolated problem, we may soon have a very large one.

Welcome to Seven Forums. May I make a couple of suggestions?
1. This thread is already marked as solved. You will Get better results if you go to Crashes and Debugging - Windows 7 Forums and begin your own thread by clicking the new thread button and give it an appropriate name..
2. Read the Crashes and debuging postining instructions, that will give our people the info the will need to help you. Include the SFDianostic test with the first post which can be found in the posting instructions.
3. To get a little ahead of the game, include screenshots of the expanded disk management so the top and bottom portion can be seen. Also the system specs of the computer in question if not the one in your System Specs.
