Nasty problem with bootload manager
On my Windows 7 64 bit pc, I made a couple of stupid errors in trying to create a virtual hard drive.
First, I somehow created a reserved space rather than an actual vhd.
Second, within that reserved space, it loaded the boot manager file and some other files.
Third, I stupidly then set that reserved space to "inactive" in another stupid error in trying to delete that reserved space, without knowing it cannot be deleted, as it has system files within it.
Now that I made that space inactive, when I boot the system, I get this:
Info: an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration.
I then tried booting from the Windows 7 install disk, using the repair option.
I then tried loading a previously saved image file with the command within the Windows 7 install disk.
That also failed, as in the scan, it refuses to find the image file in my external hard drive.
I then tried a custom install which would load a new c:\ partition minus the problem "reserved space" partition..
I then could reload my personal files and program files from the image files using my Acornis image software.
That custom install failed also, as no matter what I do, I cannot insert the operating system as prompted.
My only option now seems to be a complete reinstall and then use the image file to try to recreate my my original partition.image but that also includes the "reserved partition"
before I changed it to "inactive".
That would enable a successful boot but I still would not understand how to get rid of this reserved space which I actually wanted to be a vhd instead.
Any suggestions on a walk through to solve these problems?
