Windows 7: Repair Windows 7 MBR (Debian/GRUB Removal)

Repair Windows 7 MBR (Debian/GRUB Removal)

Hello, I've been trying to fix my MBR for Windows after I removed Debian from my computer. Every time I boot, it says "No Bootable Disk Found...", and it doesn't show it when I go to "Repair Windows", yet my OS is there (bootrec.exe /ScanOS sees it). I've tried bootrec.exe /FixMbr, but it didn't work. I've also tried /FixBoot and /RebuildBcd, but it have me an "Element not found" error. Any other ways to fix this? Thanks.

Boot into Windows 7 DVD System Recovery Options or Windows 7 System Repair Disk to Mark Win7 Partition Active.

Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Windows 7 starts and holds the System Active flags.

Be aware that sometimes GRUB can corrupt Windows 7 beyond repair when on the same HD.
