Was the win7 partition lost? So you mean it wasn't there anymore in win7 recovery environment? An was it still visible in gparted?

How did you recover it?

Sorry because missed out ur questions..

1. After using GParted, i got the error msg exactly the same like the snapshot of yours.
2. I booted my CD and click on 'repair and restart' button. After restart, the bluescreen flash out and my computer restart automaticly, still cannot boot.
3. I booted the CD again. What was on the operating system is 'Windows 7 (recovered)'. I clicked on 'Windows 7 (recovered)' and 'Next'. I selected the 'Command prompt', ran bootrec.exe with these options -/fixmbr, /fixboot, /rebuildbcd. Restart and still no boot.
4. I booted the CD again but this time no operating system was listed. I checked whether the Windows partition is ok using GParted. What i found was the Windows partition became unallocated.
5. I booted the Minitool Partition Wizard to attempt partition recovery and the result i got back the Windows partition.
6. I booted the CD, 'Windows 7' is listed then selected the 'Startup repair' and also the bootrec.exe. The problem still the same. No boot. Only blinking cursor (not mouse cursor).

*Windows partition is marked as active.
*when i click the 'view details', all of them were 0x0

Don't fully understand. You sill have \Windows\system32\winload.exe error?
Start win7 recovery environment and select win7 and enter "command prompt".
Now do:
bcdedit /enum all

Is your win7 listed? Is it pointing to right partition? Does \Windows\system32\winload.exe exist on that partition?

i have ran the command recommended by you, and the result is the same. black screen with blinking cursor.

yes. it is listed and the winload.exe is on that partition. i browse it using ubuntu live cd.

just now i remember what was shown on the screen before i got the bluescreen flash. it was "chkdsk program not found" something like that.

sorry if i troubling you.

=>next time read carefully!! Error messages are important.
I think it was winload.exe is not found. Or are you sure?

Do a "startup repair" again. No errors? Can you start in "safe mode"? If not ... where does it crash or freeze?

So checkdisk didn't start after gparted... hmm strange. Start it manually.
  • enter recovery environment and select "command prompt"
  • DIR C: or DIR D: . Now you know what your windows driveletter is in recovery environment. It isn't always C!
CHKDSK /F Y:

replace Y with actual driveletter. Any errors? Are they corrected?

okay..i will remember that.

no errors after finished the "startup repair". i have no choice to boot in "safe mode" because no text or windows boot logo like the attachment appears on the screen. only the blinking cursor at its static position (top left of screen).

after the chkdsk completed, it says "Windows has checked the file system and found no problems."

please give a summary:
  • how did you do "startup repair"? form repair disk, form installation dvd or from F8 and then "repair your computer"?
  • power on your computer and tap F8 multiple times with about 1 second in between. What happens?
