Yup i typed it exactly as it appears. I even tried typing just "sfc /scannow", that returns a message stating:

There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run SFC again.
Does the working directory matter? at the moment its on X:\Sources

detail part
select vol d
detail part
select vol e
detail part
exit


Which partition has: "Active: Yes"?
This is abit puzzling...First off, the partition marked with a star is the one with windows installed on it right? If so, its the drive F.

See I have 3 internal drives in it. Under diskpart, the main one (marked with the star?) 1TB is F, an extra 1TB drive marked E, and my old main drive which i wiped & now use for media storage. However, this old drive is under the letter C, while the main drive with windows has the letter F, is this supposed to happen??

Also with this, both the C & F drives are marked as the active drives, another problem?

Code:
 
sfc       /SCANNOW      /OFFBOOTDIR=f:\     /OFFWINDIR=f:\windows
works?

I get the blue screen of death. The stop code given is 0x0000007B, with a bunch of other codes.
This is the main reason. Stop all other troubleshooting for now. You resetted the BIOS did you?
The bios sata is in ahci mode now? in windows it's IDE?
Or vice versa?

Did you have ahci enabled in win7 (and bios)?

I checked the Bios settings earlier & I just confirmed again, all Sata ports are set to IDE mode

In win7 it was IDE as well????? I don't think so.

Put relevant sata settings to AHCI .... just as they were before resetting.

Brilliant work, computer is booting as I type this! Funny though, I dont recall ever enabling AHCI on windows before., I'd read about changing to IDE from AHCI so i figured that IDE was the default.

Thanks again

AHCI was enabled by default in BIOS(?) or someone did it before. After that windows7 was installed and installed ahci mode as well.

For now disable the automatic restart on crash so you see the BSOD with stop codes. How To Disable the Automatic Restart on System Failure in Windows 7
If that was done (stupid it isn't default) we could troubleshoot better.
Also run SFC/SCANNOW (without any extra stuff) in elevated command prompt. Post results

Post screenshot of disk management as well (all fields visible)

Scan took a while, plus everything suddenly wanted to update. Funny how much you fall back on in 2 weeks.

Here's a screenshot of the disk management attached, as well as the CBS logs from SFC.

Any way I can hide the E drive? It is now displayed on "My Computer", would rather avoid any chance of someone messing with it.

Where dod you want bootmanager and bootmenu? It is on D now (Disk1). You want it on E (system reserved)? system reserved is useless now. What is/was on D now ... old system disk?
