Thanks for the replies, I didn't expect you guys to be online so late. OK, here is the situation. At this time, I boot from sda into Ubuntu. As both drives are the same brand, model and size, I am not sure which drive is considered to be first by the UEFI BIOS. This can be tested by unplugging one drive and the other of course. The original reason I erased both of my drives completely before installing Win 7 and Ubuntu was to see which drive Win 7 preferred. I am not sure why Win 7 installed on disk "1" (sdb).
I have run diskpart and made sure that partition "1" on disk "1" is marked as active. However, I was not sure that marking the active partition lasted from session to session, so when I went in the second time to run startup recover, I ran diskpart again to make sure that the correct partition was marked as active. Now when I run startup recover, I get a message that repairs can not take place automatically, plus a dialog for sending a message to Microsoft. The detailed view only reveals a bunch of zeros in the different categories. Nothing is specified.
