Windows 7: Windows 7-Boot problem

Windows 7-Boot problem

Hi,

Something happened and I'm not able to boot my Windows 7 x 64 hard drives.
I tried to fix this with Windows 7 install disk, Easy Recovery Essentials and some other ways but nothing helped.
I'm not professional but I think that is something wrong with my Windows 7 System Reserved and Windows 7 partition contents. First of all I think my System Reserve partition didn't have a letter before and now is called E, secondly contents on the SR partition and Windows 7 partition (I think).
Both they have a boot folder. Is there any chance to fix it without reinstalling Windows?

This is what I've got (I used MessyBoot 5 to see it):

P.S.
What about these 2 boot folders in the Windows 7 System Reserved and Windows 7 partitions which I mentioned in my first message.?

This could be a possible fix. I found it at MS Support. The post was very long so I copied this post by a member there called HugoCore. This seemed to help a number of folks there. Hope it helps you as well. By the way you only have 27GB available on your C:\ This can cause problems as well.

I had also Windows 7 with 0x0000007B blue screen while loading Windows 7.
It's turn out that the BIOS had been change to another disk mode, IDE, ex-raid. For now I wanted IDE, to be simple.
Here's what works with me:
In the BIOS, i went change the SATA to IDE mode (NOT RAID, NOT AHCI)
1.Boot Win7 DVD
2.Choose the Language Selection.
3.Choose Repair.
4.On the recovery tools choose the Command Line Console
5.Type:regedit <ENTER>
7.Highlight HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
8.File > Load Hive
9.Select < windows partition with problem > \Windows\System32\config\system (Backup this first, it's advised)
10.Regedit will ask for a Key name: Name it something like "temp"
11.Located HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/temp/Select/Current
12.Searched for every key containing the value “SCSI Miniport” where the "Start" value was a "3" and changed the "Start" value to a "0". (F3 to search next result).
13.Highlight "temp"
14.File > Unload Hive
15.Restart
16.Enter in Win7

Is this a OEM (Dell, HP, Lenovo...) or it is one you build ed?
Who has installed the Win 7 U?
Did the HDD came from another computer?

You have 3 partitions
- Fist one is a System partition with the Boot loader. It is normally from a OEM and shouldn't be there on a clean install. As far I can see, it's useless.
- Second one is the C: for windows and is very short on free space. That is why is red.
- Third one is D: and is full. If it is for backup is completely useless in case of a HDD failure. Backup should always be done on another disk (internal or external) that you only connect when ready for backup.

You must make some free space on C:
- Delete all files on C:\windows\temp
- Delete all files on C:\Users"name"\AppData\Local\Temp

First I'll try what Lance1 told me but I lost after point 11. because when I selected "Current", how and where I supposed to searched for every key containing the value “SCSI Miniport”
11.Located HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/temp/Select/Current
12.Searched for every key containing the value “SCSI Miniport” where the "Start" value was a "3" and changed the "Start" value to a "0". (F3 to search next result).
Lance1, please help me with this !!!
=======
This is to Megahertz07
I did:
- Delete all files on C:\windows\temp
- Delete all files on C:\Users"name"\AppData\Local\Temp
I can make free space on C: when I boot to Windows
Partition D: is not Backup. It has just name Back
When I delete these Temp folders what I am supposed to do because when I restarted nothing change.
P.S.
Is there any chance to rebuild Windows 7 System Reserved Partition contents because I'm still thinking that something is wrong with this.

Don't delete the Temp folders. Delete all files in the folders. They are temp files that are useless. Just to make some space.
I think the System Reserved Partition is useless as it's not active (C: is).
You didn't answer my questions. See post #8.
