It is booting from system reserved as I expected. Only something changed to the partition. Did you change disk signature (very unlikely). Dis you change starting LBA of C?

Anyway... start from win7 installation DVD or system repair disk and enter reciovery environment. Perform a startup repair. Tell me what's wrong and if he can fix it. "view diagnostics" or something like that.

the conversion from dynamic disk to basic disk (actually a recovery action in partition wizard) did change the starting point of C some blocks. We are close to the solution!

no, it is still a dynamic disk. partition wizard could not change as it was greyed out. ive just used diskpart to confirm and if you go to the first post in this thread, all those messages listed from commands there are still the same.

the startup repair from the recover disk returns 'system volume is corrupt'

Do what I told you in post #22. And post the final results. So the real results which are applied. Eventually reboot to partition wizard to see if disk layout is still the same
