We can reinstall, start fresh. But thats your call. I think that is the best way. Whatever you decided good luck. I will be here for you if needed.

MBR repair/replace

Sounds like your Master Boot Record is currupted. If you can't do the conventional methods to fix it you will need to go expert ways. One way, conventional, is it to boot from any install CD/DVD that's the same as the version you have and "Repair". If you don't have one you can download one from:

MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record

If that dont work you will have to manually replace the files. To do that you will need to attach that computer's hard drive to another computer and search for the folder with the mbr files. I can't remember off the top of my head where it is but I will post it tonight where.
