I rebooted in Safe mode... here's the relevant screens. The BSOD only showed for a fraction of a second, but after a few attempts, I was lucky to take a pic... Run PW now ?

Do you know how your Active flag got moved to C originally? Were the System boot files moved and written there during repairs or reinstall?
I moved the active flag myself, cause it seemed obvious (to me) that the the active partition should be the one with the OS on it... now I know better

Where can I find good bootable AV test ?
Meanwhile I'll check active partition with PW and run startup repair... (I disconnected all HD's except SSD with OS and System Reserved, and CDROM)

Did you read post #52. Greg stipulated System Reserve should be active. Did I misunderstand this.

You want System Reserved to remain as the Active boot partition.

I gave you the steps you should be following 2 days ago: Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start. You ignored them and went all over the map while I watched and waited, patiently trying to remind you to focus on the steps needed.

I referred repeatedly here to the absolute necessity to run the AV tests first as they are listed in tutorial, right up until a few posts ago. Now you ask me where to find these AV tests as though its the first time you heard about them.

I'm deeply sorry Gregrocker... but I was (and still am) quite sure about the malware 'cause of the original problem (sudden power down while rendering) But I'll find the AV tests and run 'em rightaway...
I'll owe you TWO if I find nasties (one for the help you already gave me, and one for my bluntness ...)

From post #72. This is why their is a post #73 by me.

I moved the active flag myself, cause it seemed obvious (to me) that the the active partition should be the one with the OS on it... now I know better

I can assure you PaulVdB if you don't follow Gregs and others instructions and tutorials you will end up in No Mans Land.

Please notice my active flag.
