I actually have run most of the steps in the troubleshooting guide, but hadn't put them in a single place, which I have now done, check my previous post.

I copied the original Ntdll.dll from the original Windows 7 SP1 MSDN ISO directly from DigitalRiver, into the Windows\System32\ directory where it WASN'T PRESENT at all. With respect, Greg, could it have damaged the OS just to have restored an important system file?

As I have mentioned in the previous post, there are NO system restore points. If there were, it might have saved the day.

Yeah, I thought allocating different partitions for different purposes was a good way of doing organizing disks, and I won't be doing so the next time. It is not ideal, I agree, but is it unstable/ugly in any real way?

CCleaner does not wipe out System Restore points unless you specifically tell it to.

Did you try adding Win7 to boot from Windows 8 using EasyBCD as I suggested earlier, since you didn't reply?

Did you try all of the other boot repairs I suggested earlier throughout this thread?

Have you checked all of the causes of the crash parameters which Archie posted?

CCleaner wipes restore points, if it is asked to do so.

Attachment 299600

But it does never touch the latest one. It is out of access all the times. So, at least one restore point must be there.

Greg, I simply wonder why the OP is not doing what is needed and doing what is not needed and making the situation worse.

Ah, then it's definitely not CCleaner. I wonder what it is. I would have only disabled system restore if there was an extreme crunch in space and I needed something extremely urgently. Both of which haven't happened. No idea how they all got wiped

Yes I added Win7 to the Windows 8 BCD, it successfully starts the animation, and BSODs at the same point. Had replied in my reply to your first post on this thread.

Others : Changing active driver letter, copying boot files to C drive - tried, no difference. Virus scan by F-Secure - clean.

The first parameter is 0xC000007A. Which is the NTSTATUS.
STATUS_PROCEDURE_NOT_FOUND: Indicates the specified procedure address cannot be found in the DLL.

...
Ran seatools short tests, they're all good. Seems like pure OS file corruption.

Copying boot files is not enough, it must be followed by marking Active and running Startup Repairs.

I would not waste any more time but browse in to back up your files and everything else needed from the preparatory steps of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then follow the rest of those steps to get and keep a perfect install.

I think I'm being read wrong... I have executed all the fixes suggested in this entire thread. I have uploaded logs wherever I could get my hands on them.

Greg, please at least list the problems with my disk management... I've been wondering all this time what the problem is, minus Programs partition for windows 8 which is merely a chosen location for Programs, not by applying any hacks. Anyway, windows 7 has been installed in the bog standard manner.

Arc, I don't normally run off and install the first thing I get. But except SFC, all the other steps have shown that the problem does not lie in hardware or BCD related settings. Only thing other than some form of corruption is a bootkit as you said, which I am wondering how to check. F-Secure did not mention any bootkit-checks. Should I use AVG?

The problem definitely not common. Startup repair should have worked well, like this one.

Once repeated applications of Startup repair and SFC fail, I already know that this isn't going to be simple. Putting individual system files into a directory does not result in a stable system, I know. My idea is definitely to run a repair install once I can boot.

So please tell me why it appears like I'm not taking advice.

Just back up your data from Win7 and the adjacent Primary, power down to unplug the WIn8 HD, boot into WIn7 installer, use the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to delete the Primary partitions, create a new OS partiiton in the space. It will issue a System Reserved partition.

If you wanted to be cleaner, back up all of your data, delete all partitions, then create a new Win7 and data partition for storage or even to link to your User folder libraries so you can keep the image backup smaller with just the OS and programs.

I think where you went wrong is deleting the system Reserved partition. Sometimes its not possible to move the System boot files to C so its best to keep SysRserved until you mark C Active and run the Repairs and it starts up marked System. Then you can delete SysReserved since you know it wont' be needed. I try to follow that principle always so that if C won't take up the boot you can go back. Sometimes these things remain mysteries.

What isn't a mystery are tens of thousands of perfect installs out there for those who stick with the steps, tools and methods in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
which compile everything that works best, and is the same for retail.

Thanks. And aah... I give up trying to resuscitate this system. I kinda know the reason why it's messed beyond repair :
Some time ago this installation changed its drive letter to T:. According to various places, including this forum, I left it alone as long as it was working. Now when I regenerated the boot files, somehow it got the sense to call itself C:. But when SFC checks files, it encounters a bad mixture of C:\ and T:\ hardlinks. No wonder it gives more than 10k entries in the CBS log file. Literally everything is an integrity violation.

So I'll sit today or tomorrow and do a clean reinstall.

About the disk partitioning, why is it better to have one big data partition rather than many small ones, like in my Disk 1?
