Bit confused I am. Are you trying to reinstall Windows 7 or are you trying to repair a Windows 7 installation?

Boot the Win7 DVD, select Repair My Computer on second screen, see if it finds an installation to repair, if so accept the repair.

After reboot, if Win7 won't start, repeat but click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots to repair MBR.

Next, make sure your Win7 partition is marked active using a bootable 3rd party partition manager like free Partition Wizard CD. Now run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times from booted Win7 DVD to start Win7.

Follow the steps given above to know if it is reparable.

What happened prior to Win7 failing to start?

- NOW the PC is Searching for Windows installations.
Hope that the "Repair Computer" will work this time cause about 2hours ago i let him search for problems and it didnt do anything. Just continued to search for a hour with no result. -

You have to control the Repair console, not just take what it gives you.

Accept it's repair offer but if it fails then go back for Startup Repair at least three times with reboots to repair or rewrite MBR.

If this fails, check that Win7 is still marked Active and repeat. It should start if installation is intact.

- I also used the bootsect to fix MasterBootRecord wich is fixed cause the MBR code is installed succesfuly .
I did both of tricks : "bootsect /nt60 c: /mbr" also "bootsect / nt60 ALL/mbr" .
so the Mbr code is correct but still can not acces the PC .
I also can not reinstall Windows 7 cause when i click in upgrate I get a message :
"The computer started using Windows installation disc. Remove the installation disc and restart your (co) so that windows starts normally. Then insert the installation disc and restart upgrate. " -
