Do you have a WIn7 installation you are trying to start up?

Partition 2 would be the only place it could be and it's Details said it has no volume!

You said you have files you need to rescue. Is this correct?

Where were these files located, on what operating system or what partition?

I see nothing there except the System Reserved partition.

If you had GRUB on the disk, you need to wipe it and clean install Win7.

If you had files on the disk, we can try to recover them first.

Your data appears to have been deleted somehow. Or the DISKPART details could be wrong.

Did WIndows 7 complete installing when you reinstalled it? Did it ever start up?

You can try booting the Win7 DVD, select Repair My Computer on second screen, then click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair to see if you can start your Win7 installation. You may need to try this more than once: Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

When booting into the Win7 DVD, try using these steps here to see if you can locate your data and copy it out: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Are you saying that your Win7 is starting up now?

Why did you not tell us this?

Where were your files located?
