To me, it now sounds like you have a Windows Update problem (bad patch).
I'm not a WU expert, but there is a sub-forum where others may be able to help you:

If you want, you can also try a Repair Install, if you can start Windows:

Yeah...in fact, I will do an extensive search maybe I have the original good image somewhere but i don't recall thats the case, my back up was the original...

I don't understand that there is no simple way to rebuild part table since there is no disk or data corruption. Why the restored pbr always become corrupted again only rebbooting...that can't be an impossible issue to resolve, i cant believe that...

When you say PBR do you really mean MBR (Master Boot Record) ?
If not, what is PBR ?

I've cloned many disks without any problems. I use Clonezilla (Clonezilla - About) that is a Linux with GUI. You boot from a CD or pendrive and It's fast as it clones disks not in use.
I think your problems started when you cloned a HDD partition to a SSD disk. How did you clone it?

DavidE, I'm wondering if the Partition Boot Record is the same as what is found within a System Reserved partition? In the old days, MBR was on Track Zero, with FAT and DIR right behind, also on Track Zero.
