Where were you advised to mark Active and Rebuild BCD?

Repeatedly you've been asked if you wiped the HD using the forum's tutorial: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

This is how boot sector corruption is dealt with to give a clean slate for reinstall.

In this case, you jumped to reinstall without asking first how to repair an installation borked by Updates which is something we fix here every day.
