Perhaps I should have waited for your reply instead of reading that post...I regret it now!!
Sorry, the camshot's quality are not good so i'm just gonna type...
diskpart:
Code:
Microsoft Diskpart version 6.1.7600
Copyright...
On computer: MININT-AFRVID8
select disk 0: shows 38 different commands from ACTIVE to UNIQUEID with desciption of each...i guess all of these are not required...

list part: There is no disk selected to list partitions. Select a disk and try again.

list volume:

Volume### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info

Volume 0 D CD_ROM CDFS DVD-ROM 3562 MB Healthy
Volume 1 C OS NTFS Partition 581 GB Healthy Hidden
Volume 2 - DELLUTILITY FAT Partition 100 MB Healthy
why is it hidden?
Code:
diskpart
select vol c
active
detail partition  (type=07???, hidden=yes?? )
detail volume
attributes volume clear hidden

Which of the 3 displays the USERS folder and your account name in it?
Code:
dir c:\users
dir d:\users
dir e:\users
Where is the bootmenu (hopefully not on 2 partitions)?
Code:
dir/a  c:\boot\bcd
dir/a  d:\boot\bcd
dir/a  e:\boot\bcd
-All of these six commands show same thing as "select disk 0" command i.e. 38 command names from ACTIVE to UNIQUEID with their decription.

-Yes, I read #21 but I was hoping for some other way to recover Windows without deleting my UBUNTU contents...but I'm willing to sacrifice UBUNTU at the moment...I installed UBUNTU in somewhat similar manner previously too...

-So, I guess I should run Startup Repair three times now??
You must NOT type the commands in DISKPART but in a fresh command prompt. For now.... make the volume active and clear the hidden flag. Answer the other threads. these 6 commands are not relevant anymore

Yes, I did all that...it is type 7 and no longer hidden. I ran "list volume" again under DISKPART and now it says Volume 2 i.e. DELLUTILITY is hidden, and VOlume 1 is no longer hidden; everything else is same...Is it ok to run Startup Repair now??

Look at your previous posts.... DELLUTILY wasn't hidden at all!! But i think that was a typing error. I think is was DELLUTILY that was hidden all the time(?)

Anyway....all is fine now. C is ACTIVE? IF so.... perform a startup repair 3 times with reboots in between and post results.
system boots fine from internal disk afterwards?

oh man! now in the system recovery options I can see Windows 7 listed under Operating system which wasn't there previously and when I select it and click next, it says "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of Windows." What is this new issue now?

In recovery->command prompt

Code:

You see program files?
You see program files (x86)?
Code:
bcdboot  C:\Windows
What happens?
Code:
bootrec  /scanos
Does it detect win7 on C? Add it to bootmenu if asked.

Does it detect win7 on C? Add it to bootmenu if asked. OUTPUT: "Successfully scanned Windows installations. Total identifid windows installations: 0. The operation completed successfully." How do you know if it detected and how do you add?

Please post results
What should I do next?

This could indicate possible hard drive problems. I would run the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.
