    Might be time to do a clean install on the drive. Be sure that you don't have any other drive connected than the one you want to install Windows on to help avoid having the boot partition on another drive by mistake.

    If needed, format the drive on another computer first.

    What if I have another drive installed ? I dedicated one drive for Windows and all software, It shouldn't effect other drives. Clean install then restore my image, I hope that works considering the clean install of Windows should create all the right system files.

    I would recommend to only have one drive connected during the installation. After the installation is finished, you could connect the other drives without issue.

    Yeah, you should be able to restore your image after the clean install. If you had any issues when the image was created, restoring the image would add the issues back though.

    There was no problems before creating the image; I created the image before this mess began.

    I can boot into Windows with the boot disc, this is what is strange, I can do my normal work, not without the USB boot key in the computer. I haven't done a fresh install, somehow I believe this is recoverable, the computer is using the USB key to get past the missing bootmgr, that error doesn't even exist anymore, instead a blank blue screen happens, from there it reads from the actual Windows7 drive. There is piece of the puzzle missing from the time the USB drive is needed to the end when the physical Windows7 drive is used to boot into my regular Windows where everything is perfect, my files, settings etc.

    I've run chkdsk, there are no errors, the drive doesn't have any problems. I've made, a baby step, since the bootmgr is missing error is gone. The problem, is turning this blue screen that boots now which after a few seconds automatically reboots, into loading into my Windows7 without needing a USB key to boot.

    Windows7 USB boot disc cannot solve this problem, start up & repair is useless in this situation. What other commands could be used to fix this ? Diskpart, was behind the minor baby step, which eliminated the "bootmgr is missing" error. If the boot manager is in existent, my theory is, it is unable to connect to the right drive, once the connection is made, everything will work, I hope !

    What is horrible is the software developers of the partition software that caused this mess won't offer a solution, whether it be custom or a boot disc that I can download to repair this problem instantly. There software radically reworked my entire bootmgr, that even the so called "tech people" excluding you Brink, claim there solution solved problems such as these quickly, proves, there knowledge isn't top of the line, if it was, they would have a solution. The only other wishful thinking would be someone who was on the programming team for Windows would have to post some fix that could re-write everything with one command and everything is working, although as mentioned wishful thinking !

    Since you are able to boot into Windows, you might consider doing a repair install from within Windows to fix this.

    Just be sure to not have any other drive connected when doing the repair install to prevent the boot configuration getting put on the wrong drive.

    The installation won't work, I get an error there is no 836megs free on my boot drive, but there is 13 gigs free on the boot drive !

    Are you able to free up more space to allow the repair install?

    There is gigs of free space, nothing for me to free !

    I want to know what is happening when the computer boots into a blank blue screen, no windows logo appears, straight from BIOS to blank blue screen, the after a few seconds restarts.

    Part of the 13 GB could be allocated space and not actually free. This is why it's worth to see if freeing up more space may allow the repair install to work. If able, temporarily move some files to another drive to free some. You must have at least 8.87 GB + what is currently being used of free space (more if you have a larger installation) on the hard drive/partition Windows 7 is installed on to do a repair install.

    I'm not sure why it boots to the blank blue screen, but the repair install is an attempt to fix that as well.
