C: should have a boot folder and bootmgr file in the root of the drive. The boot folder must contain a file called bcd. These are all hidden and system files which both will need to be shown through folder options.

bootrec /fixboot

Already done? That should solve the problem
ok did that now.
when restarted it pulled out the CD and it didnt work, got a message something that boot dosnt work, then hade to go back into the repair/recovery to get it back up with the CD.
btw. i dont have an other PC here, so this is the only way to get online.

Yes, C drive has a boot folder in the windows folder.
What error message did you get exactly? Do the 2 bootrec commands again please and post the error you get afterwards at boot

bootrec commands succeeded succesfully?
