Click on "Repair Your Computer" to gain access to the System Recovery window. Now choose "Command Prompt" in order to run the desired utility which is called "bootsect.exe". Bootsect is located inside the boot folder so change your directory to boot. Now run "bootsect /nt60 C:\" if you had Win 7 initially installed in the C partition. Alternatively, you can run "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 ALL" to repair the system partition or all partitions. Eject the thumb drive and restart computer. Your computer should now boot Win 7 again.

WARNING Enter "bootsect /nt60 C:/" without the quotes!

Yes, I tried that multiple times. But it did not help. I suppose I bugged something with changing the active partition earlier. I do not even know which one has to be active: C:\Windows or the 100mb "system-reserved" partition. And should I be able to see the 100mb partition in diskpart and have a drive letter assigned to it or not?
