Windows 7: Bootmanager on D:?

Bootmanager on D:?

Hello! I have been trying to get Windows 7 back in full shape but no luck. First i have no optical drive so i had to do a repair disc on USB. And it worked. So i deleted my Linux partition and extended the C: volume but when i tried bootrec.exe /FixBoot i got ""volume does not contain a recognized file system"
Hmm so i tried bootrec.exe /FixMbr and that worked!

After some messing around in DISKPART i managed to get Windows booting again...

But now my Bootloader is located at SYSTEM D: and when i try booting without the USB Repair it wont start Windows.

So i need to get the bootloader back in business.

Here is a picture:



As i understand the bootloader is on partition D: and thats why my installation wont start without the USB repair inserted.

Im so tired now have been messing with this for about 4 hours and im about to give this up.

Is there a way to fix this? Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map with listings, using Snipping Tool in Start menu.

Normally you'd mark Windows 7 partition Active and Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
until Windows 7 starts on its own and holds the System Active flags. But you may have some unknowns that will be revealed by the Disk Mgmt picture, e.g. must convert a Logical partition to Primary before marking Active. So post the screenshot.

Hello and thanks for your reply. For some reason now i get error code 0xc00000f. And as it is now i cant even boot into the computer but i remembered how the partitions were layed out.

C: Not active containing all the files.
D: SYSTEM: Looks to be the Bootloader. Active.
F: USB Flash that needed to be inserted for the computer to start Windows 7. And this one was for some reason also active.

I dont know what to do.

Mark Windows 7 partition Active from System Recovery Options on flash stick Command Line: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

Close Command Box, run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Windows 7 starts on its own and holds System Active flags.

or use free Partition Wizard to post back a camera snap of drive map with listings, mark 7 Partition Active, then click on Disk #, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, Apply. Reboot. May preclude need to run 3 Startup Repairs.

Again there may be anomalies that need a picture of drive map to be revealed.
