Windows 7: Drive Image Problem

Bootmgr is missing - Fix

Have you tried using the manual method outlined in step 4 of this tutorial? I know you are worried about making changes and not being able to boot afterwards, so before attempting anything else, you should make a system image of both drives, if you haven't done so already. That way you can restore things to the way they were if something should go amiss. I use Macrium Reflect also, as whs suggested. Also please remember to disconnect the other drive from your system when making any changes, and when you disconnect the drive, shut down your system to do so. You may be aware of all that, but I just want to be sure.

Hi,

Thanks to all for the help but I had to re-format in the end as nothing appeared to work.

I have learned by your comments to install to a new drive making sure no other drives are attached.

Once again Thanks for your support.

Added Drive

I would like to thank everyone for their efforts.
Unfortunatley everything i attempted didn't work, i have added a second drive and detached the drive whilst re- instaling windows 7 (as you said, that was my original mistake).

All working and thanks for the support.

I'm restoring a system image via Win 7 DVD. I have the new (empty) HDD installed but when I go to the "select a system image backup" it shows my External HDD as Drive C: then I click>next>next which takes me to "Your computer will be restored from the following image" it shows "drives to restore" as \\?\Volume {26579eda-de02-11e0-aed3-806e6f6e6963}, C:. I'd like to know is this supposed to happen and if not, then what should I do.
