OK, Rt click Disk and select rebuild mbr, Apply.

Then boot 7 dvd and run startup repair 3 times.

If still no joy , we'll have a look with Diskpart .

No. That's why you made the Macrium image.

Just stick with SIW2, as there is no way this Win7 copied to the first partition is not recoverable with enough troubleshooting.

SIW2 he sez he deleted the Recovery partition in #21. Win7 was copied onto that and adjacent Vista's unallocated space.

I have complete faith in SIW2,im just asking about other possibilities

I always thought the boot section of the pc was either on bios or windows,thats how far my knowledge went and thats what brought me here lol

Boot the macrium cd and follow the screen - couldn't be easier - make sure you select Primary and Active - restore mbr as well - will be as before:
