It sounds like you need to clean reinstall to overcome the problems you're having. Just follow the steps given in earlier post to get a perfect install: re-install windows 7

Keep us posted.
I did the ISO process to the best of my interpretation and ability. I first tried to walk through your steps but it didn't seem as though it would allow me (maybe I just wasn't understanding and apply correctly). Then I went through the Help support from the program and followed the steps I thought best matched what needed to be done. I'll try to list the steps I took from DVD ISO creation to extraction on to the SD card.

I'll follow up tomorrow since it's getting late. Thanks for all your guys' patience and help. Hopefully I haven't burned you out already :P

Have you at least figured out if indeed it is a Win7 Installation DVD? Is it 2.33 gb?

Almost no manufacturers provide them any longer, to enforce their factory bloatware which provides most of the profit margin nowadays.

What other disks were provided?

Oh I'm pretty certain it isn't an installation DVD. I believe it's over 4GB. The full title is:

Windows 7 Recovery Media for Windows 7 Products

And written on the DVD: "The software included on this Recovery DVD was preinstalled on your hard disk drive at the factory and may only be used for the backup and recovery of your ASUS system"

"This disc contains 64-bit software only. Recovery DVD Disc 1 of 1"

The only other disc provided is: Driver & Utility Ver 1.0"

With my old HP laptop I actually had a Windows Upgrade disc that I used to clean install Windows Vista about every 6 months. Too bad I don't have that option any longer :P

Sounds more like a Recovery Disk then, with the factory utilties and bloatware. But it should boot and clean install.

You said you can't access Repair My Computer on F8 Advanced Boot Tools menu? But is it listed there? If it is there and won't run then you might have a damaged System Reserved (boot) partition.

You really need a Repair CD written to stick to try the Repairs, if the DVD isn't a full install DVD with the Repair console. You need to take a look at your partitions with Diskpart, see which is System Active and attempt Startup Repair. Then if it fails, you need to mark Win7 partition itself Active and try repairs again.
Partition - Mark as Active
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

I'm sorry these problems are in your way of running the normal repairs we help people with every day, but being without an optical drive is a serious handicap under the circumstances.

Could you be specific about the exact trouble you ran into when trying to follow the steps to write ISO to flash?

1) Extract ISO using ImgBurn (easiest) or UltraISO
2) On UltraISO File tab, open ISO
3) on Bootable tab, Write Image'
4) Format first using button
5) then Write.

Where did the problems arise?

From the bcdedit output:
.....
recoverysequence {8cb2d9b4-7c05-11de-842e-b4611d44fefa}
recoveryenabled Yes
.....
This is a link to the recovery boot loader -> "Repair your computer" on top of "Advanced boot options"(on F8) on standard Windows installation.
So on your disk there is a recovery folder/partition where the needed winre.wim file (and boot.sdi) are!
It is possible that Assus has renamed these files and put some vendor recovery.

If you type:

bcdedit /enum all /v >log.txt

and attach the log.txt I could tell you the exact location of the recovery files and maybe how to correct "advanced boot options" -> "repair my computer" -> EMS.

"bcdedit /enum all /v >log.txt" doesn't give me anything. I tried the exact spacing and also variations.

The output is written (redirected) to the file "log.txt" !
Either paste the contents or attach the file.
