Did you convert the HD from Dynamic to Basic using the steps given in my last post?

Which partition is marked Active? Do you have the 100mb SYstem Reserved partition? Look in Partition Wizard to see.

Are you trying Startup Repair 3 separate times with reboots from the Win7 DVD or Win7 Repair CD?

Is 100mb System Reserved marked Active? Browse into it and your Win7 partition with Partition Wizard CD using rightclick>Explore to see whether files are intact.

With 100mb marked Active, highlight the HD, then from Disk tab run Rebuild MBR. If Win7 doesn't start, boot DVD or REpair CD to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Now repeat the same process with Win7 partition marked Active.

If you cannot start Win7, then copy out your files using this method or free Paragon Rescue CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console
Paragon rescue disk; change drive letter; recover data

You may need to have Recovery Disks to run Factory Recovery for your Samsung model. Read the Manual on the Samsung Support Downloads webpage for your model.

Or you can find a Win7 installer, if necessary unlock all versions to clean reinstall your licensed version using the Product Key on COA sticker. Here are tips for getting a perfect reinstall of factory OEM: Reinstalling Windows 7
