If those steps fail, move the Active flag to the Win7 partition to try both procedures again.

Do you have Product Key on COA sticker?
YES! it's include license key. i set active flag on system reserved and then rebuild MBR and no load windows!

File:\Windows\system32\drivers\msahci.sys
0xc000000f
Windows failed to load beacuse a critical system driver is missing or corrupt.

Would you please acknowledge you followed ALL Of the steps given and not just the first one? You have not yet replied if you ran Startup Repair 3 times. This is getting to be ridiculous - I must have asked you five times.

There is no substitute for being thorough here. You canot miss a step.

Use Partition Wizard to set the partition Active. Then you can run Startup Repair from DVD System Recovery Options.

Run Startup Repair 3 separate times.

You get error code 0x2. I assume this is the windows error code(?) So file not found. Is file in c:\windows\system32\drivers ?

dir c:\windows\system32\drivers\msahci.sys

Any files in that folder?

dir c:\windows\system32\drivers

ERROR_INVALID_FUNCTION1 (0x1)Incorrect function.
ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND2 (0x2)The system cannot find the file specified.
ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND3 (0x3)The system cannot find the path specified.
ERROR_TOO_MANY_OPEN_FILES4 (0x4)The system cannot open the file.
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED5 (0x5)Access is denied.
