Very strange!! part3 is/was active as well. Later screenshots showed it as inactive. I think part1 is really active... part3/4 is just false information

mark partition 1 as active (the one with label system reserved)
Partition - Mark as Active

Do you have one of those disks? which one?

if partition wizard: Does it see the other partions? used space.. or some sort of error?
if diskpart in recover environment:
diskpart
sel part 3
det part
sel part 4
det part
exit

still useless info?

When did you do that? I didn't say to do that

Don't enter startup repair but "command prompt" instead

Code:
 
diskpart
list vol

Do you see "system reserved"? And is drive letter C? If so:

Code:
 
sel  vol  C
active

Now it boots fine. But you better check this now as well

Code:
sel part 3
det part
sel part 4
det part
More info? drive letters?

Partition Magic is not compatible with Win7.

I'm sorry for the mess that was created. This should have been simple.

You only needed to rightclick each partition in Disk Mgmt to add a Drive letter. Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums

You could resize any of the partitions safely using free Partition Wizard bootable CD as shown in this video tutorial: Partition Wizard Resize Partition Video Help. If you tell us exactly what size you'd like I will give you the steps to take.
