Do you have personal data files that might be lost because you have no backup? If so, I'd try to recover them before I worried about Windows.

What is on C, D, E, F ? Can you show us the partition layout of the internal disk? Is there one internal disk?

"Can I just active that primary partition to solve this problem?"=> Yes you can. But which partition is ACTIVE now???? You have reinstalled already... so actually you have a clean win7 anyway.
I won't solve the "disk read error"

Is there some reason why you would ask for help here and then completely ignore it, and instead recklessly and randomly continue messing up your system? Why didn't you wait for us to tell you how to get Win7 booting again like we have done for thousands of others?

We need the screenshot requested of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image. to see what you have done. Click the blue link to see how. It sounds like it is not correct at all.


Marking Active a Win7 partition which was not previously booting Windows will not magically make it boot. It must have the boot files moved onto its partition and be made bootable by either running Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
or Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums.
