Windows 7: Can't boot normally after gparted realignment

I'm afraid I'm really lost here! Attached is what I see when I try to go into the recovery partition.

So I can't see those folders, nor can I copy them! I tried just copying the whole D:\Recovery folder over to C, but it is still inaccessible.

It might! But I'm a very basic user with little knowledge of command prompt, so I don't know how to type onto new lines like this code. If I type C:\ and press enter to go down to "md \recovery\windowsre", it says the command is unknown.

Sorry, feel free to ignore me if you're getting bored of this!

Click Start.

Type cmd in the Search field.

Right-click cmd under the Programs list then choose Run as Adminstrator.

Accept the UAC prompt to open the command line window.

Type each line of code that Kaktussoft has given you and press Enter each time to run the command.

When you type the code make sure you take particular notice of any spaces. If you don't include them the code won't run.

I added more spaces for better readability

Hi Kaktussoft,
Attached is a screenshot of what happens when I type exactly what you said. All the error messages are the reason I thought I was missing something, which I obviously am!

Code was a little bit wrong ... sorry. I updated it in thread. c:\recovery\windowsre has been created succesfully. All you must do now


Code:
 
D:
cd \recovery\windowsre
xcopy /h winre.wim c:\recovery\windowsre
xcopy /h boot.sdi c:\recovery\windowsre

Hi Kaktussoft,
Please don't apologise to me, you are helping me and you don't have to!

I have put in all of that code now.

My bcdedit output reads :

New problem now, not sure if related, but now the computer does not shut down if I hit the "shut down" button on Start Menu. It simply reboots. The only way to turn off the computer is to hold down the physical power button!

Edit : Fixed? I put the computer into sleep mode a couple of times to see if a change of procedure would fix it - it seems to have done the trick
