    Ok so couple of things guys I found out that my cousin bought some time ago a retail version (or It atleast looks like one, again I am not very good with this stuff) of the same win 7 that I had preinstalled. He claims he didnt used it yet. Here are pics of the box and the cd: - https://i.imgur.com/efKbQyx.jpg - https://i.imgur.com/NgHeoLk.jpg
    I am not sure if I can use it since I had a OEM version, I think they are called that when win comes preinstalled.

    It may be perhaps possible to do a clean install (or atleast I hope) of win 7, but I would hope there is a chance to recover some files first before I do the clean install. I am making a bootable usb with windows again (I have only one USB key so I have to clean it from the ubuntu iso) so I can run the chkdsk since the only way of accesing the command promt is to boot from win USB. I will post the results asap

    You would only need installation media, no key or something as there should be a COA sticker on the back if I'm correct.

    Possible through Ubuntu?

    Possible through Ubuntu?
    We tried it with ICIT2LOL you can read through it on the first page in the last couple of posts in the bottom. But I have not been able to find any familiar folders or files

    And yes there is a COA sticker.

    As you now have a W7 iso, try rebuilding bootmanager,
    follow this link and use the MANUAL option at the bottom

    So I am in the windows command promt again right now. I noticed something and I am not sure what to make of it, heres a pic. On all pictures I saw you guys linking it always starts with C:/windows/system32

    So do I try the sfc /scannow first and then the chkdsk C: /f /r ?? I rather ask first since Ive not done this before and I would not want to fck it up. So if yes do I just type it out and then press enter and wait?

    Thats Normal, X drive is where RE starts.
    You can run both of the other tools, check disc run both modes f/r

    When running chkdsk with parameter /r the /f is not necessary.
    /f simply fixes errors on the disk,
    /r recovers the readable data in the bad sectors,

    /r includes /f what makes that /f is not a necessity to include.
    So you could simply run chkdsk C: /r instead.

    Just type it out and press enter yes :)

    Insufficient disk space? You know how large the Windows partition is and how much free space it has?

    No, I am realy bad with this, only thing I have that could maybe help is this, Its from yesterday when I booted from a USB stick with fedora on it, I dont know if its relevant.

    edit: Should I try to run chkdsk again?
