Windows 7: Windows 7 boot loop?

When you resized your C partition to create a partition for Ubuntu, did you make sure Windows still worked by booting into it before you made the Ubuntu installation?

I would keep following windude's advice, he's good.

When you have Separate HD's you should boot them independently via the BIOS, setting preferred HD to boot first in BIOS setup, the triggering the other one when needed by tapping the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key at boot.

Unplug Ubuntu HD, set Win7 HD as first HD to boot in BIOS setup.

You must mark the Win7 partition or it's 100mb System Reserved partition Active to show Startup Repair where to repair or rewrite the System boot files. Run Repairs 3 separate times until Win7 starts.

Yes, as far as I can remember it was working fine.

It is all on the same HD but in different partitions. System reserved is active.

I have tried everything. The disk does not work for some reason saying it has an error communication with my DVD Drive but I don't see why..

It says in the diagnosis that Root cause found: Boot critical file D:\Windows\System32\Drivers\partmgr.sys is corrupt.

File repair and System files integrity check and repair failed
