Windows 7: NoOsinstalled issue

NoOsinstalled issue

Hello everyone,
Need your help to solve that annoying problem please.
Last night I noticed a Trojan on my pc and tried to get rid of it by using the ComboFix utility. That thing screwed my file system..
After he completed I rebooted my pc and I'm not able anymore to get my win7 working properly.
When I try to boot i get The black screen with "File:\Boot\BCD Status:0xc0000098 Info:The Windows Boot Configuration file does not contain a valid OS entry" error.
I've tried every solution I found on the web like:
Bootrec fixes,
Diskpart fixes,
Startup repair from win DVD says NoOsinstalled
I would really like to solve this without formatting the pc, got shiploads of programs and configuration on it and it would require too much time to re-install everything, I need to work for a important project and need to be done tonight damn :-(

Seems like my pc doesnt see my win os!
Anyone please can give me some good advices please?

Combofix is a very powerful program and use by untrained users can completely destroy all data on a system , this may have happened to you.

We do have members here who are trained in it's use but as they are I think, all in the USA, and it is 4th July holiday, and you need assistance urgently, I suggest you go to the Bleeping Computer site and ask for help.

Hopefully someone there might be able to provide you with help

Boot up using the Startup disk CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, needs to be on USB Pendrive.

IMO, Use the Rebuild BCD first in this tutorial:

Do a Strartup Repair:
Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
Your Windows installation must show at this screen.

If not showing check out the list below.
1) Run Startup Repair once,(drive may be marked inactive) this will mark the drive ACTIVE.

2) Your HD is plugged in to the first Sata port on the MOBO, & first HD boot in BIOS.

3) Make sure your HD is show in BIOS.

4) Check all cables for a good fit.

5) Check to see your HD is listed in dartpart.
DISKPART : At PC Startup
type list disk.

6) Load the Sata Controller Drivers:
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows Recovery Options
Only needed, if you used when installing Windows.

7) Restore MBR.
MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record

8) Use the Rebuild BCD in this tutorial:
How to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows

9) Check your computer for virus or malware.

10) Mark the Windows HD ACTIVE:

Still not showing.
11) Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

If you have a Netbook, you can make a Startup Repair or install disk using Method two of this tutorial:
