Please follow the steps I gave you exactly. It appears you completely ignored them.

Those are not the commands given in Partition - Mark as Inactive

Are you even booted into the correct Win7?

Partition or Volume - Delete

Then either create a new partition there in Disk Mgmt, or Extend Z into the deleted space.
Partition or Volume - Create New
Partition or Volume - Extend

I cannot read the error message.

Use Disk Mgmt from the first OS, except for marking InActive.

Where is this boot folder that concerns you? Let us see a screenshot of it and the latest Disk Mgmt.

Windows 7 is being booted by WIN7_GINO partition, not the System Reserved partition which is no longer functioning as the boot partition per normal. We know this because the System flag is on that partition.

So it would be normal to have a Boot folder on C now.

Do you still have a Dual Boot menu? You can remove the extra listing in msconfig>Boot or with EasyBCD.
