Bad Sectors and corrupt MFT

Hi there

I was having issues with my Win7 PC freezing during start up, it could load into safe mode fine. I ran all my anti spyware,malware,virus tools
malware bytes, spybot s&d, avg, hijack this, could not find any issues. I tried to repair the OS using the Win7 install cd, it failed and said
there were bad sectors and a corrupt MBR, so I repaired the MBR using the hiren's boot cd partition applications. After that it wouldn't even
load I keep getting this error

"boot selection failed because required device is inaccessible 0x000000e"

apon using various partion and recovery tools on the hiren boot cd, one of my drives shows no partitions, it says its unformatted
the other drive shows the partitions and I'm in the process of recovering them. However the drive that shows no partitions is
my OS and MBR drive, which has my main data that I cannot afford to lose. if it can detect the other patitions, I'm guessing
the bad sectors are causing the partition to be unreadable, that or the bad sectors are causing the MFT to be corrupt ?

I'm not sure how to fix this, I'm outta ideas. Any help would be great
Thank you
