Ignore the driver link which is not used here at all. You somehow diverted into that.

Disk 0 and 1 are not the partitions, but disks.

You didn't follow what I gave you to type to determine which partition is the 100mb System Reserved partition or the Win7 partition. If you don't have 100mb then determine which is Win7 partition by Size, then type the command I gave you to select it and mark Active.

Then close the Command box and click Repair my Computer, post a picture of what it shows you.

Sel par 1
Active
exit

If Win7 doesn't start after running Startup Repair 3 separate times with reboots, change the Active partition to the WIn7 partition #2.

You said earlier you had merged Ubuntu and Win7 partitions? What program did this? Are you sure you used Merge and not Resize, and that it completed? Merge is almost always a paid feature in DIsk Managers. It could have ruined your Win7 if so. We can only try to start it now.

You are not selecting Startup Repair but instead chose System Image Recovery. Please pay attention to what you are doing.

Why would you merge Ubuntu partition with Win7 when you clearly needed to delete the Ubuntu partition? Are you sure you didn't delete Ubuntu partition and then Resize Win7 into its space? Merging is a paid feature in PW so you would have had to pay to use it.

Sorry, i meant system image recovery. my computer is not in english so i got confused.
and i did delete my Ubuntu partition. i formatted it and then merged it. and i have the paid version.
the problem is that there is no selectable system image on my screen. i guess it got messed up
