Windows 7: Attempting to repair boot failure?

Attempting to repair boot failure?

I'm in the process of rebuilding the windows 7 bootloader. After trying command 4 it says (Scanning all disks for windows installations. Successfully scanned windows installations. Total identified windows installations: 0 The operation completed successfully. What's the difference between a volume and a partition? In diskpart when i select disk 0 and list partitions it lists 2 partitions one being system reserved the other being the main windows partition. When i list volume though the main windows volume doesn't exist in the list? *edit 20min later* I've determined that one disk 0 partition 2 which is the windows partition, it is not associated with a volume. Only partition 1 is associated with a volume. That means the windows partition doesn't have an assigned drive letter. I have tried to assign one, but you have to specify a volume, yet it doesn't exist. Understand? Help would be highly appreciated. What i'm doing now is backing up the windows partition and then delete the partition then re-create and apply the backup to the new partition.

1.) bootrec.exe /fixmbr

2.) I:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force

3.) del C:\boot\bcd

4.) bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

Windows10 Pro - 64Bit vs.10547

I don't usually mess with the HDD's - but I have used this little program before
- it might be worth trying:
Easeus Partition Master Home Edition - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

FIXED - Used Acronis True Image to backup only partition #2, Leaving the System reserved in tact. Deleted partition #2 from the disk. Then used acronis to recover using the backup, this time not using the original backed up MBR. Put it back in, windows 7 was able to repair the problem automatically. Now here i am! damn i'm good!
