The BIOS mode output you posted shows no System partition, so boot the Win7 DVD System Recovery Options or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times to repair or rewrite the System boot files to Win7 boot partition.

If this fails work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

Did you play with partitions? Especially did you change starting point of win7 OS partition?

If you don't have a 64 bit System Repair Disk or Win7 installer then download the latest official installer ISO and burn to DVD or write to flash stick using the tool, from Steps 1 and 2 here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Then boot into System Recovery Options to work through the repair steps I gave you in my last post.

These steps lead up to possibly copying out your files and running factory Recovery or Clean reinstalling. But try each of the repairs first.

oxc000000e Boot failed
that's all there is in message? Also " the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible" I assume.

Is easy to fix most of the time. What files are lost? I think none. They are hidden or system files so you don't see them.

You need a 64bits WIN7 install DVD or 64bits system repair disk. Maybe you can borrow it. Run "startup repair" from there
