Code:
bcdedit/displayorder  {current}
Do it in elevated command prompt. Only the current OS (so win7) will be in bootmneu afterwards (just as it was).
please do #103

In elevated command prompt:
Code:
md c:\troubleshoot
xcopy /h  /y  p:\Recovery\WindowsRE\*.*   c:\troubleshoot
The 2 files are in folder c:\troubleshoot then? Put them on skydrive or dropbox or any other service so I can grab them.

Did the option: Repair your computer ever work before?

Any errors? Repaired? try "repair your computer" afterwards. Or the new boot entry you created. Works?

Did you succesfully copy 2 files in #115 ?
Do now:
Code:
attrib  -h  -s  c:\troubleshoot\*.*
start  c:\troubleshoot
boot.sdi and winre.wim? put them on skydrive or dropbox
