I'm sorry to say that the latest method you gave me did not work either. I am starting to get extremely irritated by this.

OK, let's have a closer look at your disk. Download the bootable CD of Partition Wizard (link is in the last box of the webpage). Burn this .iso to a CD (e.g. with ImgBurn) and boot your system with the CD. Then take a readable picture with a camera of what PW is showing you. Post that picture here. Then we'll go from there.

Um.. nothing happens. It just boots Windows and receive a BSOD, as usual.

Good picture. That looks pretty neat. Apparently your activation of C: with Command Prompt worked because C: is now active. But since you have the 100MB partition which seems to be intact, let's do the following - all with the bootable PW CD:

1. Highlight C: > click on the partition tab above > Modify > deactivate
2. Highlight the 100MB partition > click on the partition tab above > Modify > activate
3. On the left side there should be a 'Fix MBR' button. Click on that.

After each step do an 'Apply' (top left)

On point #3 I may not have the exact semantic because I do not want to take my system down to boot into the CD. But it should be about that.

When you are done with all that, try to boot Windows 7. If the 100MB partition is still intact, that should work. If not, we'll do something else.

It's called Rebuild MBR and it is blacked out in the Disk drop-down menu. It is not in the Operations to the left.
