So 3 partitions on harddisk. Old Windows 7 partition is gone according to diskpart.
In command prompt:
Code:
 
chkdsk/f  c:
chkdsk/f  d:
chkdsk/f  e:
does it find any errors? Repaired them succesfully? If so run commands again to see if errors are gone

yes i called it "new" aswell just so I could remember which was the new partition
edit--
ahh I see what you mean, I was worried that the label boot meant it booted only from this one

diskpart
sel disk 0
select part 2
detail part
exit

Is it active? (no screenshot needed)

Code:
 
bootsect/nt60  c:  /force
bootsect/nt60  c:  /force  /mbr
Bootsect commands succeed succesfully?

the Windows splash screen appears:Symptom

Probable Cause
  • "NTLDR is missing"
  • "A disk read error occurred"
  • System hangs after BIOS POST finishes
Boot sector is corrupt due to hard disk errors or virus infection
