Hi Roberto,

Not easy to understand what you are trying to explain.

Are you sure the drive letters are correct?

Sometimes windows7 drive letter can change after restore.

If you can get to some kind of window 7 desktop, have a look and see if the windows 7 drive letter is what it was originally - probably C.

An easy way to fix it is with Paragon free rescue kit.

It makes a bootable cd - boot it , select normal mode - there is an option to correct drive letters in system registry.

Annoyingly, the download link is on Facebook:
