on reboot> windows boot manager screen> windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. to fix the problem:

1. insert install disk and restart
2. choose lang.
3. click repair your computer.

file:\boot\bcd
status: 0xc000000e

info: error while attempting to read boot config data.

checked bios real quick before disk boot;

sys bios version 2.10> ec version 1.80> multi processing enabled> esata port disabled> usb legacy disabled> sata controller mode: compatibility> boot order cd (which shows it being primary master), then hdd/ssd 2nd in order (shows it as slave 1 (S1))

rebooting from cd to do repair

Make sure Win7 partition is marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

If this fails try install with SATA controller in AHCI mode as I suggested 3 days ago. In fact I would work through the troubleshooting steps from the top to make sure you're not missing any.

You meant Part 2 is 101gb right? If not then Startup Repair is correct that there is no OS installed.

Try Step 2.2 here to prepartition 100gb Primary NTFS part and mark Active for install: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
