Windows 7: EasyBCD vs Windows 7

EasyBCD vs Windows 7


This is in regards to a single boot Windows 7 (HP) laptop.

Recently, while trying out EasyBCD and EasyRE (EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies), I tried to make a bootable EasyBCD key. I accidentally clicked upon the wrong partition letter/number, and instead of installing the bootable BCD software on to the waiting USB stick, I installed it into my boot partition. I cannot boot into Windows 7, now. I have attached a screenshot of the boot failure message.

Windows 7 startup repair, and reverting to the last recovery point, did not help. The supposedly bootable EasyBCD memory stick, I did make, does not work either, and fails to boot.

(Before I do anything) how can I undo this, and recover the Windows 7 system?

To anyone who replies:
Thank you for your time.

When the boot sector of the drive is really messed up it can take more than one application to get everything sorted

I have no idea what that is, or what you did.

I could take a wild guess that you were using some program to try and create bootable usb from the EASYRE iso ?
