Windows 7: mistake in msconfig/startup, now wont boot

mistake in msconfig/startup, now wont boot

Nokia Booklet 3g Netbook
Windows 7 home premium 32bit

i have somehow unchecked some boxes by accident with msconfig/startup...

and after a reboot, i get the black screen to insert disc.

since it is a nokia booklet 3g netbook, obviously there is not a cdrom on it. so i created a boot copy of my win7 home premium install disc on a usb.

it boots great from the usb, and i get the screens above, it shows me that this is going to be repaired:

System recovery options

Repair details:
The following startup option will be repaired:
Name: Windows Boot Manager
Identifier: {9DEA862C-5CDD-4E70-ACC1-F32B344D4795}

The following startup options will be deleted:
Name: Windows 7
Identifier: {31F3FFE8-B50A-11DE-9A8F-8B8E1E183ADE}

Windows Device: Partition=C: (6487 MB)

A copy of the current boot configuration data will be saved as: C:\Boot\BCD.Backup.0001

but it gives me this error when i try to repair it:

Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically

problem details

i am able to open the command prompt, but an not sure what to do to fix my start up so that the booklet will run correctly again.

if anyone can help, that would be much appreciated! thank you.
