Windows 7 maybe thinks it's on (E:) and not (C:)

I posted in error where I it says widows is loading files and goes to start up repair 4 days ago and haven't got any response, so I think this might be my problem after I got this info on the error I get. Other than, when I run bootable MiniTool Partition Wizard it just loads for about 10 seconds and my laptop restarts. I had a secondary OS with a GRUB boot menu until I replaced it with bootrec.exe on cmd.exe in the startup repair thinking it'll fix my problem.
I want to fix my computer with out getting anything deleted if possible, I have no repair/installation disc nor do I have restore points.

Boot into System Recovery Options to confirm that Win7 or it's System Reserved boot partition (Preferred if you have it) is Partition Marked Active.

Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts.

If these steps fail then start and the top with the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

I can't boot into the Advanced Boot Options, when I press F8 it goes into the startup repair after saying windows is loading files

Use the disk in Option Two. If you need the disk it is provided in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

You can access System Recovery Options list after Startup Repair runs automatically, by looking at its results page and clicking the link to use other Options. This will give you access to the COmmand Line, System REstore, Image REcovery, and Startup Repair.

But its better to use the disk and since we provide the latest official Win7 isntaller for your version, you should make and Keep it. YOu may need it later in the steps for a reinstall.

I don't know where you got that link because the installer is provided in Step 6 here:

6. If you need an installer for your licensed version to boot to run Repairs or possible Clean Reinstall, download the latest official Win7 installer w/SP1 ISO, burn to DVD or write to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool.

You want the media refresh version. Make sure you d/l the correct 32 or 64 bit - the same as your installation.

What language are you using?
