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?
ill do it again and note the exact message. gimme 10-15 mins.

those 2 bootrec commands fixes the MBR and bootsector only. Normally by replacing it with something that's already there. There shouldn't be any side effects!

I'll be back in 20 minutes

So bootrec commands made your dsik unbootable. Normally so now you get "missing bootmgr" again?

What did "startup repair" fix and see as errors? There is an option like "view diagnostic details". click on it and see what errors there are.

Sorry to say... do the bootrec trick again. First only bootrec/fixmbr please
and then startup repair and view the diagnotics details

Are you sure bootrec/fixmbr succeeds succesfully?

Mark the Win7 partition Active: Partition - Mark as Active

Boot into Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 boots on its own.

To do this unplug D which can interfere if it has old boot code on it, and should have its data moved off to wipe using Diskpart Clean Command from DVD. DISKPART At PC Startup

in recovery environment command prompt:

dir c:\
sure that's windows partition?

bootsect /nt60 C: /force /mbr
bootsect /nt60 C: /force

actually the same as bootrec/fixmbr and fixboot. But gives you more output!
Sample output
bootsect /nt60 e: /force

Target volumes will be updated with BOOTMGR compatible bootcode.

E: (\\?\Volume{d2602ac3-ded6-11e0-a821-806e6f6e6963})

Forced dismount complete, open handles to this volume are now invalid.

Successfully updated NTFS filesystem bootcode.

Bootcode was successfully updated on all targeted volumes.
