I'm pretty sure you don't need to access that partition to change your boot manager. If so, then that would be my warning sign to not continue.

DeaconFrost is right about one thing: what you're wanting to do is risky. If you're going to modify the bootmgr file, at least make a backup copy of it first. Anything goes wrong, you can then restore that backup using your Windows recovery disc in the command prompt.

That said, making the system partition accessible is easily done by assigning a drive letter to it from Disk Management.

Quote from Coder for life.

"This error is because you modified the files already and the program cannot modify already modified files. You need to use "Options > Restore Backups". In the next version the program will be able to modify files that have been previously modified and this error won't show up as often."

Please HELP ME!!!
*Unused Partition is a partition I made!! It came with no name with my windows, so I named it Unused!

Thanks!

C is your active partition, so that's where bootmgr is. No need to unlock OEM-partition
