You back up your Users folder, favorites, songs, etc. You make a bootable USB with the windows 7 iso image on it. I think you have the latest drivers downloaded, put them on something easily accessible. Secure Erase the SSD, and boot from the USB stick with the clean Windows 7 image on it. That takes about 12 minutes to be on the desktop. If you have made any changes in the BIOS, set to factory defaults beforehand....and make SURE SATA ports are set to AHCI. After that, it is a matter of installing drivers and updates. You can get the Windows 7 64-bit SP1 image various places, and making a bootable USB stick is simple.....as long as you have a 4GB+ USB drive.

Once you used Acronis restore, it re-imaged your drive. I think from what you said that you used your acronis backup to restore.

There is no way to delete the 96MB partition, then make the C: partition Active ?

Will this correct this ?

Did not use Acronis to restore anything at all,
the images are on a external drive.

Yes, you can move the System boot files to C by Marking C Partition Active then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times because it is the only wholistic method that tests and repairs all parameters including rewriting WinRE link to F8 menu.

Once the OS boots and C holds the System Active flags, you can delete System Reserved to leave or recover its space using Partition Wizard CD Resize Partition - Video Help.

Did you see the other suggestions I gave you earlier?

I'm in between halfway understanding what is going on, and being thoroughly confused. You could do a clean install of Windows in the time it takes to try and repair it. Programs are not that difficult to find and install. I recommend Ninite for basic programs. HUGE time saver. Ninite
