Windows 7: When I opened my computer after shutting down it won't boot

I put it on my flash stick with rufus. I checked in BIOS and the USB was enabled. Unfortunately I don't have a dvd writer in another computer, so I can't burn it on a DVD, so I can't try disks, however, I have a Windows Ultimate 7 64bit dvd. Can I work with that?

That may work to get into System Recovery Options to confirm Partition Marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If you burned a UEFI installer using Rufus and don't have a UEFI PC with GPT disks, then it might not work. That's why I asked you if you have UEFI in BIOS?

I attached a picture, what I got from the startup repair
P.S. It is made with a mobile phone, so sorry for the bad quality.

Did you unplug all other drives and peripherals?

Did you confirm that 100mb System Reserved (preferred) or C is Partition Marked Active?

Did you run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times no matter what it reports?

If so then please download and burn to CD with Windows Image Burner Partition Wizard,
boot the disk to take another picture of the full drive map and all listings so we can see every label on partitions. You may need to burn the disk on a borrowed PC.

You can also reinstall the OS you uninstalled without giving any thought to whether it held the boot files, or another preferred Dual Boot OS even as a rescue install. Make sure you select the correct partition so it doesn't overwrite the OS you want to save. It should configure a Dual Boot but if not install EasyBCD to add the other to a Dual Boot menu. Then we can give you the steps to properly remove the unwanted OS.

You can rescue your files at any time using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console. But I would do it now in case you somehow overwrite the old OS.

When I use bootrec.exe /ScanOs command in cmd, it says Total identified Windows installations: 0, is this a problem? Can I try using commands like bootrec.exe /fixmbr or fixboot? And maybe it is too drastical, but if I delete the boot information, wouldn't Windows generate new information needed?

No, you would want to run all of the bootrec and bootsect commands which are already automated in Startup Repair, but sometimes this can help: Use Bootrec.exe in the Windows RE to troubleshoot startup issues

The other steps I gave you are much better prospects, each of which can help more.

I somehow managed to get the boot manager screen on for a few seconds, there was only Microsoft windows setup (EMS) written in the list.

That's the installation media you booted.

Problem is Repair for some reason won't write boot files into the partition which were never there. So unless you can copy them in to Repair then bootsect has nothing to work with.

If you don't want to do a rescue install or show PW map so we see what other complications might exist then rescue your files to delete all partitions during reinstall.
