    I get an error the element data type specified is not recognized or does not apply to the specified entry.
    I have to say, the partition software I used really botched things up severely. I'm almost at a week since this occurred. It was driving me insane after work I took a day or two off from even attempting to fix, all that would happen is I would go in circles. Until I adjusted some things in the BIOS, and I was able to boot into the Digital Rivers Windows7 boot disc.

    Since you didn't include a screenshot of the entire drive layout in Disk Management, I'm not able to tell between partitions and a single drive in your screenshot above.

    Your bcdedit report from earlier shows that it's using the boot configuration on your I: drive instead of C:.

    If you don't boot with any other OS on any other drive, then you need to mark inactive G, I, and Temp_Drive. You'll need to temporarily assign a drive letter to Temp_Drive to be able to mark it inactive.

    Partition - Mark as Inactive

    Afterwards, disconnect all drives other than your Windows C: drive, and run startup repair again. Possibly up to 3 times.

    The computer starts to a blue screen, nothing more ! The Windows Start up Disc doesn't boot as it once did, instead I get an error.

    Starting Windows with the Boot Disc mentioned the Windows Start Manager failed to start; insert the Windows boot disk to start up and repair the Windows installation. I only have the Windows upgrade disc, startup & repair does not work with the upgrade disc.

    After what step did this start happening?

    You might create a boot Windows installation USB, and see if you are able to boot from it to repair Windows.

    That is what I was using all this time a USB UEFI Boot Drive, that doesn't work anymore after using Diskpart. Instead the computer boots into a blank blue screen, after a few second it reboots, then it does it again & again & again.

    As I said the boot partition software messed everything up and everyone's suggestions can't fix it. The problem happened last Thursday, and it's almost a week later ! I'm not a novice at computers, I've tried many things before hitting the forums, hoping to get it working in a matter of a day or two tops. Here I am almost a week later, I've had people on the forum tell me things from, "it works for everyone else" to "maybe your doing this wrong", instead of admitting, maybe this is a isolated incident and my solutions that have worked for many are not working in this case.

    Do you have all drives disconnected other than the Windows drive?

    On the Windows drive, is there only the C: partition?

    Try using a non UEFI USB flash drive.

    Yes, I'll try a non UEFI flash Drive, even though I created a hybrid boot disc, I'll create another that isn't a hybrid.

    Rufus created a boot disc for BIOS or UEFI computers, there is nothing more for me to do.

    I created another boot usb drive with Rufus, except this time, I choose only a UEFI file system. I was able to choose Start up & Repair, unfortunately it doesn't work as I get an error that it's not compatible with my version of windows, this is a ISO from digital rivers.

    I can't format the partition, my WinPE doesn't allow me, the USB boot drive, doesn't allow me, arghhh !

    You DO NOT want to use a UEFI USB since your Windows 7 is not installed with UEFI. Create one that isn't USB using this below to see if it may work instead. :)

    The USB / DVD Download Tool doesn't work, when I boot up, I can access the Start up and Repair options, there is no Windows drive in the list to repair, instead my computer does what it has been doing, boot into a blue screen after a few minutes it resets.

    I have a image of the windows partition, if I could format the partition, in hopes that I can repair the the 100 meg boot partition, then restore my image, I could have everything up and running in an hour. Not only can I not do that, I can't repair the Windows partition without.
