You would also need the ntuser.dat hive. It is in "Driveletter:\Users\your-username\ntuser.dat"

ok a miracle just happened
somehow its booting + doing chkdsk all on its own.. wow i was so close to giving up too..

what i did was bcdedit /remove {default}
i also used diskpart to set the partition active? not sure why it kept removing the active flag???
also did bootrec /fixmbr + /fixboot + /rebuildBCD

also did a SFC /scannow

fingers crossed its still doing chkdsk i hope i can get to the safemode login screen

i think where i really screwed up was connecting a second drive that i had cloned the first drive onto..
i think it screwed up the drive letters of the partitions and the bootmanager went screwey which si why i had that 0xc000000e error

Ah, now you tell us.

That might cause problems, but not necessarily. Depends on your "cloning" program. Most nowadays do not do true clones - instead, they do copies and automatically change the signature and os volume identifier on the target.

If your cloning program changed those correctly, you would be able to boot on the same hardware.

Trying to boot on different hardware usually requires other adjustments.

im up! its done chkdsk and its actually booted up.. in Normal mode! even! not safe mode..
this is the furthest ive got..
im scared to reboot again..
but the dvd drive isnt showing up again..
and i cant install win7 without the dvd.. if only i had a usb dvd right now..
i might make a usb installer without rebooting and plug it in and do an upgrade install

Or you could copy the contents of the dvd to another partition, then just run setup.exe from that partition.
