Sorry, that post was directed at theog.

The steps and their responses:

Bootrec /fixmbr
The operation completed successfully.

Bootrec /fixboot
The volume does not contain a recognized file system.
Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not currupted

Bootrec /rebuildbcd
Scanning all disks for Windows installations.

Please wait, since this may take a while...

Successfully scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations: 0
The operation completed successfully.

This did not get windows to start and no installation was shown.

I ran startup repair three times and every time it told me the same thing:

Startup Repair cannot fix this problem automatically.

Under "View Problem Details" it said:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: Startup Repair Offline
Problem Signature 01: (there is a number here and I'm not sure what it means)
Problem Signature 02: (same number)
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: -1
Problem Signature 05: External Media
Problem Signature 06: 1
Problem Signature 07: MissingBootManager
OS Version: (different number)
Locale ID: (number)

On diagnosis and repair details it says:

Startup Repair diagnosis and repair log

Session details
System Disk = /Device/Harddisk0
Windows directory =
AutoChk Run = 0
Number of root causes = 1

Test Performed:
Check for updates
Completed

System disk test
Completed

Disk failure diagnosis
Completed

Disk metadata test
Completed

Rootcause found:
Boot manager is missing or corrupt

Repair action: File repair
Result: Failed. Error code = 0x15

This did not get windows to start either.

The rest of your post is, unfortunately, gibberish to me.

Instead of replying that the steps I've typed out are "gibberish" when the same steps have been used by thousands successfully before, why not ask specific questions so you can complete each step?

I simply mean that what you are saying makes no sense to me. I'm not the most computer literate person.
