before we are done I hope you will teach me or tell me why Win7 denies access to my documents. I am the only user and I am the one and only administrator, but "access denied" ? In earlier installation I set my permissions, but why should I have to?

I have no idea what time zone you are in. I'm in Central Standard Time,CST.

Remind me about the access problem when all else is finished.

Would you make a snapshot of the present output of Disk Management?

Need that to correctly advise on next step.

I am just down the road from you, Universal City, just north of San Antonio. But I need another hour or so. I will be back to the systems around 2 pm.

I have a glitch. This is an older board, the SATA system will not see the 1 Tb drive. A couple of months ago when I bought the large HDD, I added a Silicone Image card to support the drive. It needed a bios flash which I did back then to see the drive. I had to redo that this morning. Now the large drive is visible in My Computer, but the Computer Management Console will not fully deploy the Disk Management. I reads at the bottom "Connecting to Virtual Disk Service...". Resource Monitor shows only about 2% CPU load. Also, Safe Mode refuses to get past "ClassPNP.exe" file.

Wait...the Disk Management shows now...

I only read a few of the first posts of the thread, so I don't know how germane it is, but I recently had a problem very similar to this...did you use Paragon Partition Manager? If so, in the future use something else. My boot hung at the login screen also, until I disconnected drive 0 (non-OS). I think that PPM was also involved in the failure of that drive, when I later attempted to delete a raw partition at the front of that drive.

Like I said, I only scanned the thread, but I think that you said that Drive 0 is your OS drive, and if that is the case, I'm not sure what happened, but it must have to do with MBR, or MFT corruption.

Sure wish you would check in with me before you take those plunges.

Let's see if we can recover without having to go back to ground zero.

Part of yo problem, if not all of it, is caused by having more than one active partition in your system.

What you need to do is:
1 Boot up from that System Repair Disc.
2. Go to a command prompt and run
3. DiskPart
4. type List Disk
5. type select disk n where n is the number that correponds to one of the drives which your disk managment shows as being "active.
Right now you have three drives marked as active.
We only want one, the C, to be active.
6. OK you selected one of those other active drives.
7l type Detail Disk
Read what is there and make sure you got one of those two extra active drives.
8. type Select Partition 1 (since on the disk, partition 1 will be the first one)
9. type INACTIVE
10. Repeat this for the other drive that was marked active that shouldn't have been.
11. when finished, type Exit
12 remove the Repair Disc,
13. type exit
