Am I correct in assuming you cannot boot - correct or not? If so then posting a screen shot will be difficult!

You can view and edit the status of your partitions using the "Partition Wizard" boot CD.
Once the partitions are in order "bootrec" should work.

Howto get F8 key "Repair your computer" working?
When you said "I've done" I assumed you started SysReserved and now your F8 Repair option would not work. What else would you mean by "I've done" there?

Either way, run the Repairs from Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk with System Reserved marked Active. If this fails after three separate Startup Repairs,change the Active flag to Win7 partition to run the Repairs.

If these fail try Step 8 here: Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

upiter77, You need to clarify your situation.
I might expect F8 issues if you transfer active to your OS partition.

One reason we recommend Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times is because it assures the F8 Winre hotlink is rewritten no matter where you move the Boot Files. Otherwise you could use Command Line or EasyBCD.

To clarify, I've created a separate primary partition 100MB with the Label "System Reserved" and set it as an active.
I've already bootet 3 times form the WIN7 setup CD and done "repair", but didn't help to boot WinRE using F8.

BTW I've deleted these entries before:[code]
Code:
Identyfikator {1d858f51-2cca-11e1-bfcf-c137106dd4cd}

Then I've done the following:

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Reboot.

Now using F8 "Repair your computer" the windows starts normally instead of load WinRE.

Even I've tried Reagentc /enable and 3 times repair, reboot.

Now I have the following:

Are you saying that Win7 is booting correctly? What else could this mean, saying it "starts normally?"

So what is the problem now exactly?

At the moment I have just a problem with F8 key.
Windows seems to start normally now, but F8 key doesn't work correctly.
If I press "Repair your computer", then Win7 starts normally instead load WinRE files.
Howto get F8 key working?

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map and listings, using Snipping Tool in Start menu.

In rare cases the hotlink to Winre on F8 is lost and not rewritten by Startup Repair. You may have to wait until reinstall or message our colleague SIW2 who is expert at this.

First of all many, many thanks for ALL really helpful answers, great forum!

This problem is solved now.

I've done the following:

So I booted up using gparted, formated the 100MB partition using NTFS, created "System Reserved" label, because got lost during format and set it bootable.
Then I booted up with WIN7 setup CD and I've done 3 times "Repair" and between 3 times restart.
Now my F8 key works correctly during the startup, it loads WinRE files.

And now it's time for a cold beer...


Just in case, if someone really needs:
Code:
C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit /enum all
