Also make sure you are booting the recovery usb in the correct mode - bios in your case.

I downloaded and made a bootusb with that handy ISO file with all the tools, thats great.
As you are using my winpe - you can see where everything is with explorer.

Ok, so the old partition doesnt have a boot folder. The new partition does.
On the iso boot disk theres an easybcd program, i loaded the new windows install bcd and deployed it to the oldpartition, it says success, i edited the windows folder directory and saved it. It says success.

Yet when i restart from the ssd, it says cant find any operating system.

My train of thought would be that you could use the new windows 7 install BCD to overwrite or deploy it to the old partition which is the same windows version and all.
Is this possible with the 17514x64v15.iso file that i mounted on the USB??

it should be simple, but its not. I even tried booting from the windows repair usb, going through the diskpart and bootrec.
Still nothing works.
Im running out of ideas

Does the List volume command list a System partition?

No, but its ok guys. Thank you for the help. I managed to copy some needed files through my new windows install and they all work in the new windows environment.
I think I will format the old partition and merge the partitions together with partition assistant.

That is possible am I right?

And no, it doesnt say system partition. It detects that windows is installed but thats it.

Even the repair usb for windows, doesnt list the C: drive and windows in that small window when it loads up and it has errors when i try to automatically fix it.

Thanks anyways everyone for the help but I think a reformat is in order.

Cheers!

Yes you can merge partition with unallocated space.

So I tried the suggested solutions including rolling back the registry and sometimes I was able to login fine but Windows was running at a snail's pace and in some cases even froze or refused certain commands like opening a file etc.
I gave up and took it to my local PC shop. They diagnosed it that same day and told me my System HDD was damaged internally(the platters) and I had to install a fresh copy of Windows on a new HDD. So I dug up an old 256 GB SSD I had lying around and installed Windows 10 on it.
I lost some data which is unfortunate but at least I have a working OS now and one which boots in under 28 seconds too.
Thank you for all your help
