How about first booting the Repair CD or WIn7 DVD Repair console to run the three Startup Repairs as advised (and ignored) and then report back exactly what happens like everyone else does who wants our help? Do it now.

May I also ask your age, as we are not allowed to help those younger than 13 because they also have no attention span?
hey Greg,I deleted Recovery drive because I created recovery to dvd's & the drive could be deleted as told to me by HP salesperson.

I created repair dvd & booted using that just like you said but the problem wasn't resolved?

By the way I'm 21 years old.

The MBR is most likely fine. PW looks fine. Even windows starts, but is giving you an autochk error.
If you press F8 on boot you see


Select "disable automatic restart on system failure". And press enter. What happens after boot now?

The registry entry for when the "dirty bit" is set to run chkdsk is:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
BootExecute = autocheck autochk *

Windows tries to find autochk.exe using the system variable path and thats set with another variable "
%SystemRoot%\system32"
If Windows boots as the wrong letter that would become: wrong letter\Windows\System32\autochk.exe

Never let the number of primary partitions go more than four.

When the installation and activation is done, do it : Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup . In future, it will save you from recurring such a situation.

Anyway, all well that ends well

That means I need to keep a backup dvd of the whole laptop besides having HP Recovery dvd's.

Tomorrow I'll post screenshot of how my disk management now looks.Do help me create new partitions & shrink C drive as much as I want.
