Accidentally marked drive C as active
I started O&O partition manager and accidentally pressed active on partition C and now I cannot boot windows...
I am using build 7600 x86 I loaded up the windows 7 iso on a usb memory and booted from it and chose repair, it said it found things to repair, i pressed ok, it rebooted but it did not help, now I chose from the repair menu to automatically search and fix, it said startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically and it want to send information about this problem, I wonder how it figured on doing that...
oh yes i started the repair again and pressed command promt and followed this guide: MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record and the first thing it said about D being the "DVD" was wrong in my case, it was E and from then on the guide was excally like in my case and I completed the guide, rebooted and still the same message "BOOTMGR is missing Press ctrl alt del to restart"
So what can i do to fix this? without needing to reinstall windows
