Windows 7: BCD missing and the partition with OS and BCD not listed in Diskpart

BCD missing and the partition with OS and BCD not listed in Diskpart

My pc won't boot up cause i made some software changes but didn't save things properly. It's running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I checked online and found i could boot up from an installation disc and repair it. But the recovery tools didn't work and I found that I could rebuild the BCD folder.

I was trying to rebuild my BCD file using some online instructions (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2004518) i was using method 2.But I accidentally typed in Bcdedit /export C:\BCD instead of Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup and pressed ENTER. And it said the command was completed. I thought i would correct the error by typing in Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup and the rest of the commands. they all completed successfully so I thought it was alright.

However when i restarted the pc I got an error at startup that says: status: 0xc000000f. apparently my boot folder is missing. SoI searched for some more solutions online and most said i've to go to the partition with the boot folder and OS using diskpart.

But when i run diskpart and run the command to list partition or list volume my original C partition isn't listed. It shows my System Reserved partition with the C letter assigned to it. Originally it was assigned letter E. And it shows that its active. I've tried running bootrec commands and restarting the pc but it's still not fixed.

I've tried searching for a solutions online but I can't find any. Please help. Thanks for all the help.

I've tried running RECOVER and RESCAN commands in diskpart but they don't show the partition. I've tried getting more solutions but I can't find 1 that works. Been working on this for a half a day now. I need help asap. Thanks for taking the time to help out.
