Why would this solve the issue in the question?

comment How large is the Win7 operating system?
This severely underestimates the size. There's user directories, updates etc. The user does not say why he wants that information, but probably because he wwants to know how large a (virtual) disk should be to fit his installation.

comment Some key combinations no longer work
Does the machine have any fancy mouse/keyboard driver software, keyboard shortcut software? Since other users have no issue, it must be software running under your account. Google how to make a list of all software running on your computer, then inspect these programs one by one.

Check for scheduled tasks (see Admin Tools ->Task Scheduler) that request "Wake the computer to run this task" (see "Conditions").

comment How to recover partially deleted text in Word file
You have 'tried Recuva' - what does that mean? Did you search through non-allocated disk space for parts of the missing text? And don't you have backups of the Word document somewhere? Please edit your question.

comment Old VAX machine crashed need to recover files
Moved Nick's answer to comment: "Question: If it's "dead" how do you propose to boot it to gain access to the network, etc.? In what state is the actual system? I presume there's power otherwise you wouldn't be investigating access methods, but I can't be sure."

comment locked folder tell to me how to unlock
You have to give more information. "Some of my folders are locked" -> what folders? What is 'locked'? What is this 'Photo instrument' program? Where did it come from? Make a screenshot of the maessage.

comment Folders got converted to files Windows 8.1
Be very careful that you no longer write to that hard disk. Leave it on (no reboots), don't work on it, disable automatic processes, disable hibernation/sleep. You don't say so, but are all the files that were in those folders still present? They may not be, although their data is still on the disk. In that case with new writes, the OS may think the sectors occupied by those files are available for writing again. Hence my warning. You need good file recovery software and you need to verify that every write/recover action you are going to take will have the desired result.

comment How to re-partition old XP boot drive (with OEM partition) after installing Win7 on new SSD?
That did not work. When I disconnect the SATA 2 drive (the one with the XP boot) and boot from a startup CD I only get the option Windows Setup. There is nothing to 'repair'.

comment How to re-partition old XP boot drive (with OEM partition) after installing Win7 on new SSD?
This did not work yet. BCDBoot went fine, but after setting E: inactive I was back to the boot failure. What do you mean with "Set SSD as first disk"? My boot sequence is 1) Floppy 2) Onboard CD 3) Onboard SATA. My SATA controllers have the HDDs on 0 and 2, the SSD on 3. All AHCI BIOS

As I wrote in my post, making it inactive (exactly as you describe) stops my machine from booting.

comment No drive letter assigned to partition
You may want to run file recovery software like SpinRite or HDD Regenerator in read-only mode. This will let the SMART subsystem reallocate sectors gone bad. I recommend Spinrite at level 2.
