Windows 7: Windows 7 not booting

lol nevermind about all this missing partition stuff. I just realized that 465GB is actually how big my hard drive should be (after being formatted with ntfs). I guess before everything happened i had a 451GB C drive, and a 14GB recovery partition. So what the clean command did was clear all partitions and basically merge it all into one ntfs partiton. Sorry for wasting your time, and thanks for all the help.

No need to apologize. You didn't waste anyone's time. That is why we are here to help others. Glad you got your issue fixed. Yes the " clean " command wipes all the partitions on the hard drive you selected then when you do the " create partition primary " command and then type in select partition 1 then type active it makes that 1 partition bootable . So you don't have any other partitions on the drive.
