Ok, thanks.
I did that and now when I reboot I get:

Intel Undi, pxe-2.1 (build 082)
copyright...
covered by .....

realtek pci....
pxe-ec8: !pxe structure was not found in UNDI driver code segment.
pxe-m0f: exiting pxe rom.

reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key

Does PW CD now show the partitions restored to the drive map?

Which partition is marked System and/or Active.

Try Rebuild MBR from Disk tab, Apply, reboot.

None were marked active
i made the os_install active, others say status=none
all types are primary

i did a rebuild and the boot menu comes up like it used to but next screen when choosing 7 says there is an error failed to start...recent hardware or softwrae change.

status 0xc0000000e

the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible

Does the Win7 partition retain its correct drive letter? Rightclick Explore to see if files are intact.

Next run Rebuild MBR from Disk tab, Apply, reboot.

If it doesn't start, boot into Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD to run Startup Repair up to 3 times to write the System MBR to Win7 partition.

Dont see where the drive letter is viewable. (did shift f-10 in windows repair disk, drive letter look fine)The files do appear intact for 7 and Vista (thought it was xp:))
I'll try the repair console

Sounds good.

I would next run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check OS integrity, then Disk Check to check HD file system integrity.

Then watch performance closely. Here are troubleshooting tips: Computer lags every couple seconds
