Windows 7: Bootmgr is missing or corrupted(NEW*)

Bootmgr is missing or corrupted(NEW*)

k i know this has a simple solution, but for me is different. tried the windows 7 cd and it doesnt recognize any windows installations!!, so all the bootrec.exe commands are useless, the commands in boot folder of c: are also useless, cause it doesnt recognize my partition. This all happened cause i messed up using easybcd to take linux grub out, and now i have this. I luckily have a linux live cd right now, and im using it and trying to fdisk, but like i said before it gives me all partitions except for the windows partition. I installed wine so i can use easy bcd from linux, and reinstall win 7 mbr, but i couldnt open the app, dont know why.... so i m pretty much tied up

This might be quite simple. Mark your Windows partition as active, and then run a startup repair.

like i said before, my partition is not recognized, when i type list disk it show me my whole hardrive, and i cant go in the disk. what pisses me off the most, is that when im gonna install windows 7, it shows me all my partitions..... but in diskpart and fdisk in linux, it doesnt show me my c: drive.... my error is bootmgr is missing when i boot up, and i have tried the usual solutions alrdy

Once you type list disk, you need to type

select disk [number]

list partition

k sorry for being ignorant, you do have to be very exact with commands. Anyways this is what i got, partition 0 and 1 seem to be the same with 19gb size, and 146gb offset. Partition 2, which is primary is my recovery partition has 132gb size and 165gb offset, and i remember i had 145gb recovery partition... which it should be partition 2, my primary was 155gb, which it does not appear, and my linux distro had 19gb plus 1gb swap, which should be either 0 or 1... idk why there is 2... i tried to make partition 0 or 1 active, but i couldnt and even if i did, i think i deleted grub before i had this issue, i want my windows back!! : , i couldnt make it active, cause it looks like my windows partition doesnt even exist!

Open a command prompt, and enter the following:

diskpart
list disk
select disk [
whatever the number of the disk with the Windows 7 partition on it it]
list partition
select partition
[whatever the partition of the Windows installation is]
active

Can you tell if your Windows 7 partition is Primary or Extended?

i have 3 partitions according to what i remember, 155gb partition, which runs windows 7, i have a 145gb recovery partition, and my last partition has 20gb and runs a linux distro. Diskpart tells me i have 2 20gb partitions, which i can only recognize 1 of them which is my linux distro, and is an extended partition. The other clone of the 20gb partition is logical, and my recovery partition appears as primary according to diskpart, but my original windows 7 partition does not appear.

is your hard disk a sata? i know gparted, some editions dont like sata drives, so if your using gparted through linux it may not see it if its on a sata....

im sorry, i was a little lost in the wording, if your seeing other partitions on the same hard drive, than never mind, but what about reinstalling grub and than editing it to where you think the partition should be? grub is pretty solid, its always found my installs, only other thing is i havent messed with grub2 once i got it set, so i cant help at all there......

It is not sata, and i would need to look for grub commands.... what does easy bcd do? what commands does it use? maybe i can reverse it and bring back my baby windows 7 ,
