Make sure the partition is formatted primary and set active. All other partitions not active.
Make a system repair CD (or download an ISO) from someone's PC. It is in the Backup & Restore screen.
Run the Startup Repair 3 separate times. This should rebuild your system reserved.

Thx a lot, but you mean to start 3 times from the WIN7 setup CD and repair or just 3 times click on Startup Repair 3?

If you run a startup repair three times, you'll need to reboot after each attempt.

2. Choose your langugae settings, and then click next
3. Click "repair your computer."

Just remember to reboot between each attempt at a startup repair.

F8 still doesn't work and perhaps here is a problem:

Do you have a 100MB system reserved partition which is primary active and another OS partition with the words Boot, pagefile ?

Anyway assuming you do then
Boot the system repair CD or installation disk and go into a command prompt then type:
>bootrec /fixmbr
>bootrec /fixboot
>bootrec /rebuildbcd
Then reboot.

I find startup repair isn't always foolproof.
