PW cannot do any more than Rebuild MBR once you've confirmed the Active partition, as shown in the Troubleshooting Steps. If it won't start then you need to run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times.

Are you making any organized attempt to work through those steps? If so and nothing works then I'd reinstall after wiping the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command

Little by little I'm getting more hopeless. Not because of you guys ! I really appreciate the time you put in this forum, and I'm so thankful for the interest you all show in my "mess", in my stupidness. I really do appreciate that you allready gave me very valuable tips. My problem is still not solved, but I really don't blame any one on this forum. I DO understand that it is not easy to troubleshoot a computer that you've never seen.
What I already learned is that
-Making restore points is not enough to recover from a disaster...
-A system image seems to be absolutely necessary !
-I'll need a better cooler for my CPU (thinking about getting a water cooling system)

Tonight I'll do some more tests, and follow some more of your proposals. By now, I think that I can be sure that (luckily!) there's nothing wrong with my harware. Running the memtest68 for about 5 hours, and working in DOS for hours and hours trying to repair without errors kinda convinces me that there's no harware problem, not in the RAM, not in the CPU.
I cannot make screenshots because Windows is not running at all. (I access this forum with my laptop).

Now let's assume that we can't get this problem solved and i have to reinstall windows. Then my question is : how do I reinstall without loosing too much?
I was thinking about this scenario :
Install Windows on a new HD. (I would use a new 120GB SSD)
Use the last (working!) restore point on this new HD/Windows intallation. OK, All the progs that were on my old C: drive will be lost, but (where possible) I've installed all programs on E: (what is on another HD).

My HD layout is as follows :
C: 60GB SSD > one partition, only has WINDOWS and OFFICE + other things that HAVE to be on C:
I already made a copy of the .pst file and the rules-file, so after reinstalling Office I won't have lost alot...

D: "My Documents" on 1T HD, partition size 100GB
E: " Programs files" on same1T HD, partition size 100GB
F: 800GB "data" on same1T HD

The restore points I made include C: and E: !

If this would work, :
-how do I make a copy (in DOS !!!) from my "restore point(s)-file" to another working partition (e.g. F ?
-How do I have to "restore" from this (moved) restore-file when my new windows is installed.
-Will I be able to use the progs on E: again ?

I know how to copy in DOS, but I don't know where to find the file that contains the restore point(s)...

Thanks in advance guys !

And indeed, the boot partition does not have a boot.ini file ...

I believe Windows 7 changed its boot.ini file to bootmgr.dll but I may be wrong

What file does it stop at when you try to boot into Safe Mode ? Tap on the F8 key while the PC is booting up on the Advanced Boot Options window choose Safe Mode . Use the Down arrow and press the <ENTER> key on Safe Mode you will see a black screen with white scrolling down. Let me know what file it hangs on .

Hey thanks for your concern, Vistaking

You mean that I should rename bootmgr.dll to boot.ini ?

No . Boot.ini is for Windows XP . Windows 7 uses BCD instead of boot.ini .

Are you able to see what file it stops at when you try to boot to Safe Mode ?
