Windows 7: No option to Repair your computer in Recovery

No option to Repair your computer in Recovery

I had an option to repair my computer without the need of the repair disk before I did a clean install of windows 7 64bit. My setup is exactly the same using the same DVD I used for the initial install that had the option to repir my computer. This is a PC that I built so it has nothing to do with manufacturer.

Why would I not have the same option to repair my computer after a new installation using he same method?

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

Did you delete all partitions during booted install using the drive options shown in Step 7 of Clean Install Windows 7?

If so have you repaired Win7 boot since then using only bootrec commands, as these dated XP-era commands do not do the full job which Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times does including rewriting the F8 WInRE link.

I deleted all partitions like I normally do before install. I have not done a repair boot and I don't have a boot problem. I just don't understand why I need the DVD to do a repair when I was previously able to launch it without it. Disk management has the 100Mb partition and the C drive partition. I am unable to post a screen shot at the moment.

See if System Reserved partition is correctly marked System Active.

If so then sometimes running Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times will write the Repair console to F8 menu if it isn't there for some reason.

System drive is marked active and this didn't work. I am going to leave it as is.
