Windows 7: BCD/NLS data issues and recovery

BCD/NLS data issues and recovery

So. This is my first ever forum post on this site, and it's quite a conundrum. Here's my problem.

I use a Dell Vostro 3350 for gaming, and use a Toshiba for work stuff. A couple of days ago, I was using EasyBCD to add another Windows 7 OS to my Dell, and I accidentally deleted it. Before I could fix it, however, my computer ran out of battery and shut down. When I started it back up, it gave me the following message: (Copied from Google Images, I don't know how to screen capture when it won't boot)

I eventually fixed it, but it was quite difficult. I manually repaired the BCD via the command prompt with a CD/DVD recovery disk. When I started it up, I expected it to be fixed. Wrong! It started up with this, in BLUE now!

I've tried sfc /scannow, chkdsk /f, bootrec /rebuildbcd, bootrec /fixboot, bootrec /fixmbr, I've tried using Windows RE on a CD, a USB, and the one built in to my Dell. I've tried copying the NLS files from my sysWOW64 folder from my Toshiba to my Dell using a linux distro on my USB, I can't factory reset, and nothing is working. Weirdly, the data is still on the hard disk, so I'm confused on what actually happened. Any ideas would be great. Thanks!

I managed to install a new Windows 7 OS temporarily, using Hiren's Boot CD. Now what? SFC came up clean, and I've officially tried everything.

I managed to get it to dual boot with my old OS, but whenever I try to load it, I get this:
