Hi there. Today I was on my computer which has Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (x86) and I shut down, and there were like 25 updates installing during the shut down. After it finally shut down, I turned it back on like 7 or so hours later and I get to the Verifying DMI Pool Data stage, then it says the BOOTMGR is missing and press Crt + Alt + Del to restart. It's kinda ironic and lucky cuz just today I set up my back up on my external hard drive and made a system image. Though is there anyway to fix this problem? I've checked and made sure that my internal HDD is the primary device to boot from but it's still saying the Boot Manager is missing. What can I do? Do I need to do a system restore? And if so, what would be the best way to initiate that? Thank you.
You know, I think I may have marked my external HDD as active today when I was messing with my allocations and partitions (cuz I was formatting a partition I had which had RC on it and then merging it back to my main 1TB internal HD). I marked the external Toshiba HDD as active but I made sure my internal one was set to active too. Hmm.. and there was no way to un-activate the external one - or at least no way I could see.
I already downloaded a repair disk from there last time but it was the 32 bit. I got 64 now so I'll need to get my hands on a CD, download the 64 bit version and burn it on there. After that, what do I do exactly?
