active
exit
I only want system reserved to be active!
Try to boot. If not booting.... startup repair 3 times.
Post results.
I've been wrestling with this laptop all afternoon using startup repair. At times it wouldn't even bootup with a Win 7 install disk. I tried a different Win 7 Ultimate 64bit disk and I was able to get back to the forum so that I could post. At this time, it will not bootup unless I use a Win 7 Ult Install disk.

See disk management snip. I think that this is what you want. System reserved is the only active partition. Also at the bottom is a zipped fine named LeftC. I ran SF Diagnostic Tool and this is the results.

Max usage 10GB is enough. Disable system protection on any ghost disks in the list
I ended up with 3% or about 14GB. 2% was 8GB, so I settled for 3%. No ghost disks.

win7 startup repair and boot while win7 disk inserted... They seem to fix boot menu on ssd and boot from SSD. Do it again. Check if system reserved is active! But if you boots normally it loads boot menu from system reserved. No boot menu anymore there. So transfer boot menu from SSD to system reserved. Boot to SSD with win7 disk in. Be sure only system reserved is active. be sure ssd is marked "system" in disk management (so it has boot menu[at least now]).

In elevated command prompt
Code:
bcdedit/export  e:\boot\bcd
Current boot menu has now been exported (actually copied).

Code:
bcdedit/enum all /store e:\boot\bcd
bcdedit/enum all /store c:\boot\bcd
Both are the same now? Both are pointing to C (check lines like device, osdevice etc)

reboot normally without dvd

I'm somewhat confused as to what I am supposed to do with the above. I'm lost, really. Do I just do a startup repair 3 times again?

Also, take a look at the disk management snip today. Both system reserved (E) and OS (C) are active. Yesterday, I only had system reserved active. How did the computer make this happen?

If windows boots normally it only tries to boot from old harddisk as you told me before.

Startup repair did fix the boot from SSD. It repaired the boot menu on wrong disk. startup repair is confused!

bootmenu on ssd is fine! you did post it before. Copy it it system reserved.

So do all commands as explained in #152

So just do from within win7 elevated command prompt, so not from win7 dvd (but you can have win7 dvd inserted)

Code:
bcdedit/export  e:\boot\bcd
It copies the current bootmenu (bcd file) to f (system reserved)
Current bcd is bootable and is on C as I saw on disk management screenshot.

After this command c:\boot\bcd has been copied to e:\boot\bcd and system will boot fine (eject dvd first)

Take a look at the snips. I think that all is pointing to C. E (system reserved) is still the only active partition.

All looks fine. I assume this was ooutput of
bcdedit/enum all /store e:\boot\bcd
and bcdedit/enum all /store c:\boot\bcd

Why are you calling it E? (I wrote it wrong...system reserved is called E)

I just saw this. I did "bcdedit/export f:\boot\bcd" and it was successful. I have been changing "f" to "e" which is the system reserved partition.

Do I do anything with "After this command c:\boot\bcd has been copied to f:\boot\bcd and system will boot fine (eject dvd first)" other than eject dvd?

So you did
bcdedit/export e:\boot\bcd
bcdedit/enum all /store c:\boot\bcd
bcdedit/enum all /store e:\boot\bcd

If so:
  1. eject dvd
  2. boot normally
  3. post disk management output

I did the above. When I first shut down this computer w/o install DVD I got a blue screen saying "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE." I booted into safe mode and it worked OK. I then rebooted to Windows and restarted it several times all w/o install DVD and it is working OK. Below is a snip of disk management. (Both C and E are active again??)
