error 0xc0000225 after easus partition change, win7 won't boot
I bought new laptop asus u47vc 2 days ago. After doing some basic changes I did a iso copy of a system (as asus app advice me) but I didn't had any DVDs at the time so I just skipped burning it. Then I wanted to change a partitions size and use this easeus partition master. I had two partitions c (~200 gb) and d (~250 gb) I resize c to (~100) and create new from the rest and divided d for 4 more or less equally sized partitions. It went well untill this point. I hit apply and Easeus restart computer. But it didn't boot. After Asus logo the display is dark(can't upload pictures) at the top it says windows boot manager.
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2 choose language settings and then click 'next' 3. Click 'repair your computer'. Status:0xc0000225 the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccesible. "
I don't have a recovery disc as I didn't burn it. I had windows 7 home premium sp1 64bit and any of my friends have this one. I tried to use bootable usb with a version from 'media river' but it gives me error that my version is not correct. I was able to get to command prompt window as I thought after reading other similar threads that one of partition has to be active. When I get to the partitions there are four:
#1 system 100mb
#2 reserved 200mb
#3 primary 97gb
#4 primary 254gb
I sure that windows was on the #3 so I tried to make it active. But after I tried there was an information: "the selected disk is not a fixed basic mbr disk". And now I'm lost and don't know what to do.
Here is a screen:
I understand that I can reinstall win7 from this bootable usb that I made but I would like to check out asus bloatware and chose which one I don't need. Also I'm not sure if there are any damages on hdd? I don't want to go for asus service because they will charge me for recovery disc and again I don't know if it will work.
Can some one help me ? I read a lot abot this but still didn't found answer. There was one person that used discgenius program to rebuild disc as mbr but I didn't understand that and don't know if it will help in my case.
Hope someone can help me.
Ps. So sorry for my english and mistakes.

I would mark the System Reserved partition Active: Mark Partition Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times .
However if it's not a Basic disk then it may not start, you may need to wipe the HD first to convert it to Basic. Check first in BIOS setup if there is an EFI boot disk in the boot order and remove it. Check also that Legacy BIOS there is enabled if available. Then run Diskpart Clean Command followed by the command "Convert MBR" before doing a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
There is a step in the tutorial to rescue your files from unbootable Win7 first.
