Windows 7: How do I get recovery console to recognize operating system?

How do I get recovery console to recognize operating system?

I have 64 bit windows 7 and it won't boot. When I start from repair disk the recovery console doesn't recognize the operating system. When I run Startup Repair it tells me it can't automatically fix because there is no OS. I believe I have the correct partition selected and I'm not sure what to do next. Any ideas?

So you`re saying you can see your install drive and partition ?

In the box for system recovery options the box is empty that has operating system, partition size and location. I have ran startup repair several times, but it tells me that it can't repair because no OS is found. I have used the command prompt to rebuild the BCD and when I restart it is still blank. If I try to boot from the hard drive I get this error "file: \boot\bcd status: 0xc0000098 info: the windows boot configuration data file does not contain a valid os entry." I'm not sure where to go from here.
