reboot machine and tap F8 all the time so you see Advanced Boot Options

then "repair my computer". Does it work? Do you see this? or more? just restart pc from there

Here you find all drivers l702x - Dell - Search - All Dell.com
in case you ever need it.

But your recovery partition and OEM partition can be deleted (both on ssd), they are just a copy of harddisk isn't it? recovery partition on harddisk is to go back to factory settings and isn't working now as welll!!! You added a new win7 entry to it. And the old one... don't know but it's gone. Oem partition on harddisk ... well probavly install of stupid tools and drivers.

I advice you to delete those partitions. You can reinstall win7 anyway.

Just open disk management and right click on partitions oem and recovery and do "delete volume"

Thanks for the drivers link - Dell like to hide their BIOS updates so a link is good!!

I can't delete the OEM partition through disk management, but it's only 100mb, so I don't mind leaving it.

I have a few games and things on the harddisk, so I'll just need to back them up, and then you recommend deleting OS partition on harddisk?
