Set C:\ active instead of SystemReserv.Part.-> boot 0xc000000
in the course of troubleshooting a different problem, I was stupid
enough to set C:\ active on a Win7 Prof 32bit system. Now I cannot
boot. I believe I need to set the SystemReserved Partition active again.
I have a Vaio X notebook without CD Rom drive.
I am getting the boot manager screen , with the 0xc000000f error.
I believe I will need a bootable USB stick and a program that will
set the right partition active again.
There is a restore partition on the hdd, but I am afraid of using it since
the last thing I want is resetting the pc back to factory. I don't know
if the problem could be solved with the help of that partition alone.
I have a full backup, 3 days old, thanks God.
I have done a lot of gogle research, and also searched this forum, but there
was no solution that was specific enough for this particulat problem. It's
"simply" about fixing a wrong partition "set active".
(I set the wrong, i.e. c:, partition active in _windows disk management_, btw..)
Please only post if you are confident enough that your solution won't break anything. =) I am really anxious... =)

SOLVED! i used the "MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Flash Drive". after changing boot order, i was able to set sysreserved active again and voilą.
caution, this come swith the prof version, i e it cost me 20 euro. i advice users with the same proble to check for free software that might do the trick as well. personally, i liked minitool so, i spent the money, but i believe it's probably possibe to get the same effect for free somewhere.
thanks for reading anyway, hope this helps other users.
