hey i dont think windows is even installed on that os partition. If you notice on the partition theres no windows folder.. plus when i hold F8 i dont get any menu except the boot device menu. Im still getting the grub rescue error.
I dont even know how to make sure my partitions are set as active. I know i set the flag to boot.
Ok PQservice is operational. Don't format because you'll lose all data on C:\, if it's present. Now change boot flag to C:\.
Try booting into safe mode choose "last known working setup".
If that doesn't work press "win-key+r"
If you can go to safe mode try option in post#98
Also you can probably get into erecovery and load 1 of your images in safemode.
You should have some restore points saved.
Exactly what make & model?
I just looked at your gparted image & you have no boot flags set.
select the box next to boot
