Windows 7, Start up repair loop of death

Hey All!

Having some issues with one of my systems and it is driving me BONKERS!

System:

Sabertooth P67 Rev b 3.0
i7
16GB ram
250GB Samsung SSD
Windows 7 64bit

Anyways, the issue I am having is I went to bed last night and everything was working prime, when I woke up this morning my computer was stuck on the Windows Splash Screen and when it Finally loaded onto windows (after a few reboots)

I started running

SFC /Scannow -> completed super quick then FROZE

so I shut down and tried rebooting into safe mode, this is when the computer COMPLETELY locked up...

I read a few different forums saying I should try making a backup via "MD Mybackup" -> Copy *.* ..
turns out it didn't work due to my hash value resulting in 0 Bytes

So I attempted going into the Diskpart and making my part 1 active, still no success

It seems as if the Registry of the SDD has corrupted and Locked me out of the computer, Is there any way I a would be able to repair this and have functionality back, or Should I JUST delete and rebuild via DVD?

I have access to the disk via -> sata and another computer so thats how I ran sfc with it returning the message "100% complete windows did not find any issues"

Thank for reading and hopefully one of you AMAZING Guru's can shed some light on this sad moment

EDIT 1:

I tried following @Dzomlija walk through

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

from the SDD itself and Kept getting recurring errors, So at an Attempt to save face I attempted once more the walk through by connecting the HDD over my other PC's Sata cable and accessing it Via CMD prompt

lets say the walk though was more like a Break through, it ended up fixing the Issues and I was able to log back onto the computer

EDIT 2:

After Following said ^ walk through, I was able to repair the computer using another computer>sata>cmd> and navigating that way


Now my question is, is there a way to fail safe this in case for some freak occurrence this happened again, aside from making a recovery image?

Hi,
Your 100mb system reserved partition has a drive letter assigned to it is probably why you're having booting issues it must be removed.
I believe you can use free minitool to do it
Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

Then possibly startup repair if need one last time

I just removed it directly thought the disk management system! :P

Hopefully I wont run into this issue anymore, I also created backups / system restore image

Thank you Thrash for your help!!

Also, Disk 1 (G) is marked Active, it shouldn`t be. If you want, see if Windows will boot without that drive hooked up, just unplug the data cable.

If Windows boots on its own, then Disk 1 should be marked inactive, but only AFTER verifying windows boots on its own.

If so, then Disk 3 should be moved to sata port #1 on the motherboard. It will then be at the top of the list.
