At this point, reinstalling might just be the best option...

I think it is getting too difficult. Certainly why Gregrocker gave up without a word.

I thought it could have come to this, and that is why I asked you earlier about using your tutorial on top of a fresh installation. Is it worth trying?

Sorry I have been traveling so didn't have time to read over this huge thread to see if anything might have been missed.

Every possible repair has already been attempted, including open-heart surgery on your registry.

You can copy out your files and gain full access to explorer using the link I posted earlier. Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Having access to your Device manager from Safe Mode would not likely help Missing Bootmgr, only allow you to check condition of your drivers to see if any are contributing to the failure: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation

Moreover, the boot sector is obviously corrupted to such an extent that you need to wipe the HD (to overwrite corrupt or infected code) then clean reinstall Win7. SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

We will be glad to help you achieve a perfect reinstall to then save a backup image so that you never need to reinstall again. Clean Install Windows 7

As I said before, restoring from the Windows.old folder will save some of your data, nothing more.

You will still have to reinstall all your programs.

Well, the point was precisely to avoid reinstalling all the programs because with the OS there is not really much to do and installs quickly. Anyway, thanks for all the effort on helping.

I understand. But it's not possible at this point.
