Do you have a 64 bits win7 install disk?

In elevated command prompt
Code:

It's the same win7 install disc that I used earlier but I'm not sure about the 64 or 32 bits...the screenshot:

The system repair disk is actually just the same as the "repair my computer" option as in "advanced boot options". Because that option doesn't work..... it can't be copied to CD/DVD as well! There's no recovery environment now. The WIM-file (recovery environment in kind of zip-file) was pointing to sda2. And sda2 was marked ACTIVE. Was that previously an win7 boot partition and did you delete that partition (or override)?

In windows recovery (start boot from recovery cd) . command prompt:
Code:
dir  X:\windows
Do you see folder SysWOW64? If so... it's a 64bits recovery disk. Post results
Code:
dir  C:\windows
It has SysWOW64?
