Please understand that we specialize here in helping users get the best installs of WIn7, so it is not really motivating to help salvage a junk install. But you have the steps to try and we will try to help you complete them.
ah.. okey i understand and i apologize. just its taking an extremely long time and getting slightly frustrated with my self as on the past 5 forums im getting hardly anywhere to fix this problem - its was only until i posted here i was slightly heading in the right direction.

also that and the fact i need to keep switching the power cables out beetwen each PC because i only have 1 power cable and need to use that between the 2

also if it helps in anyway the default partition is still on the 100mb one and not the OS

just let me know ASAP what info you need and or what you want me to do

You have the worst install of WIn7 one can have, the HP Factory Preinstall.

It is not working.

Now is the perfect time to run HP Minimal Recovery or if it is not available do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

This is all that I would do, since you asked.

Otherwise you have the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

true but i really dont want to return to te factory install state as i dont want to lose my progress hence i was wanting help to see if it could be resolved. if i cant somehow get this backup and working il might end up doing a factory reinstall. also while im thankful you took the time to do these walk through on step to take if these problems occur - what if something happens that is not stated in the walk through ? hence why most of whats been typed here by me is results of these articles / tutorial steps not going as planned and getting different outcomes

Is the 100MB marked active or the large win7 partition?

Code:
dir c:\Windows\system32\winload.exe
dir d:\Windows\system32\winload.exe
Is winload.exe on disk c or d? Did chkdsk/f command performed earlier detect and repair errors?

chkdsk/f on c ran fine and i dunno i never really seen any text saying disk is clean or okey or healthy etc etc

however D was taking way to long so i stopped it and went to bed.

keep in mind tho when im checking the D disk il not be on to to get info so i could be away for hours on end. and yes im pretty sure the 100mb is still marked active by default. il post results if it is or not. and il also check where winload is brb 5-10 mins

:EDIT: > 100mb was still active

previous results:

chkdsk on C: is all good and found no problems on there

dir C: did not find the file

D: was different and came up with this

Volume in D is OS
Volume serial number (security reasons)
Directory of d:\windows\system32
File not found

dir     (you see many files... so in existing folder?)
dir  win*.*
attrib  win*.*
last 2 commands show files start with "win". What do you see?
