Here you go.
Disk 2 is most likely the usb disk. Why make the RECOVERY partition ACTIVE? What are you trying to achieve by that?

Alright, I left the settings as I originally found them (set OS drive to Active, and set Recovery drive to Inactive and Hidden), and started the first Startup Repair run.

The "unknown" drive was actually my Windows 7 installation dongle I made. I must be more frazzled than I thought...

The system itself is still extremely sluggish, but at least I don't have the BSOD pop up now.
With System Repair you mean Startup Repair ?
Did chkdsk fix many errors? Do this again from recovery environment->command prompt:
Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
chkdsk/f  d:
no errors anymore?

dir c:\users
dir d:\users

Is the OS disk called C or D in recovery environment?

run startup repair 3 times with reboots in between. Click on "view diagnostics results" or something like that after startup repair finishes. It lists the tests it performed. Which tests have not status 0x0 (means success so no problem) and what is their status?

I'll run chkdsk again if the triple Startup Repair doesn't do the trick, but it was running extremely slowly right before I made that Partition Wizard disc (about 1.5 files in the index per minute).

chkdsk very slow (correct?) . I think your disk is dying. Do you have a backup already? Make it using Macrium Reflect Free for example. Imaging with free Macrium
Take the winpe version and burn the ISO. Boot from the DVD

First Startup Repair run completed, all error codes at 0x0, root cause is stated as "unspecified changes to system configuration".

Starting the second run.

that's not the full text!! It must be something like:
"Root cause found: Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem. Repair action: System files integrity check and repair. Result: Failed. Error code = 0x490.

Please post whole text
