Windows 7: Repair F8 Repair Your Computer Option

Okay, I'll contact him. I think I'll try that 3 reapairs method now. I installed Ubuntu to an external hardrive via USB connection. After i uninstalled that, my Windows 7 booted just fine with no hiccups. I'm guessing that's because I always kept Windows 7 as default boot. I wish this had an Android App... I'll keep posting via mobile until I'm done with the 3 repairs method.

If you booted only via the BIOS Boot order and Boot Menu with no GRUB then something else must have caused your System flag disappearance, possible change of Active flag partition.

Since C is Logical I'd first try restoring the System Reserved partition which is intended to boot Windows 7. mark it Active then run the 3 Repairs.

if that fails convert C to Primary using free Partition Wizard bootable CD to mark it Active and run the Repairs: How to set partition as Primary or Logical.

One or the other may restore F8 boot options as it has in the past, depending upon whether and how they are corrupted.

Well upon setting SYSTEM RESERVED as active & rebooting, hitting F8 & choosing Repair Your Computer, it has entered into the System Recovery Options. I'm attempting the 3 Startup Repairs method. Finally -_- So, hopefully this should fix the issue overall...
