problem started a few days ago when I removed a partition on a back up hard drive that had a back up OS. Apparently, the back up OS held the boot info, so when I re-booted, I got a an ntoskrnl.exe missing message.
I've used the OS DVD (only the RC as I'm not sure where my purchased OS disk is) and Easy BCD boot manager, but it's all quite a mess now. I had to re-install the RC ver of Win 7 so I could run Easy BCD. I had things somewhat running (my working OS) but have now found that I can't boot it, and when I tried to restore an Acronis drive image, it won't run, even after a re-boot.
I've formated the drive the running the OS DVD and the cmd prompt. But I still can't restore an image, even booting from and Acronis restore disk, as the hard drive it's still labled System Partition in the RC ver of Win 7.
If I can't restore to a formated hard drive, I don't know what to do except buy a new HD and try to restore to that.
Any ideas? I'm computer savy, but I'm reaching the end point...
