Windows 7: Computer does not startup

I was able to change the HDDRECOVERY (NTFS) disk to primary but the S3A77 (NTFS) disk cannot be set to primary for some reason... the option is locked.

I was able to set the two drives to primary with some background knowledge and rebooting and editting the config. Errm but now I cannot rebuild the mbr because the disk drop down menu everything is locked in there and I cannot seem to get it unlocked. How should I approach this problem? Anyways this is the current layout of the drive map - below:

The instructions could not have been more clear. You were to rightclick on the large partition and choose Explore to see if your files are there and if a Windows folder is there with files in it. Instead you reply with an irrelevancy about the space used which could be incorrect.

Then the steps were spelled out clearly to follow. Why is it you have problems following clearly stated steps?

Instead you run the Partition Recovery Wizard which was never mentioned. Why?

How about movies showing you how the steps are done?

Greg, you know most of the people aren't willing to read or do what you type. And don't give information you asked for. It's the way how people act. Bothers me as well all the time.

But he had 4 partitions ... all primary. All type 82 and 83. So all linux. I didn't advise him to try recover the partitions. But if I had seen the partition layout in PW, I should suggest: delete all partitions and try a partitions recovery "quick scan".
