I know there has to be an easier way, and someone will surely point it out, but the sure fire way is to unplug the drive that you dont want associated with w7, reinstall on the remaining drive, then plug the other drive back in.. Hope this helps..

The drive you want to remove contains that 100 mb partition which contains the boot files, And the windows 7 is installed in another drive.
Am I correct??

Ok first remove the 60 Gb drive.
Then Boot from the Windows 7 installation DVD and try start up repair.

This should fix the your problem without reinstalling windows 7.

thank you so much it helped, i had to twice do that on repair, and now windows 7 run correctly!! I wanted to do that, because i had problems with my second disk, sometimes 2th hard disk switches off, and after turns on, also on first installed had to assign a letter to 2th hard disk, because windows 7 didnt see him.
