I was missing the boot.ini file.Where it went I will never know.I could not just reload this file because it was not visible from the image of the c drive I had made. Now with the new image I made this file visible so MAYBE I can now just restore just that one file if I ever needed it.Maybe ,it might be a good idea for people to learn to make this file visible before doing a image or a backup.It would of saved me a lot of pain and suffering.Just an idea for the future.

Most system files have the hidden attribute set. You can go into the file explorer options and set it to "view hidden files".
