Doesn't 25,600 bcd.log mean that bcd is on D ?

Those are the first steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which was in my first post in this thread a week ago. Everything that can be done to Start Win7 is there. Did you even look over those steps?

I did run diskpart
then select vol e
Active and then ran startup repair 3 times
After that I rebooted and got the message - Bootmgr is missing.
I did read and try some of the steps in Troubleshooting Win7 failure to start, before I even came to this forum, and also read quite a few threads about it, which is why I'm now here where I can get some help, thank you for asking though.
