What's a consumer multi-boot issue? Maybe you can post a link to the definition. The site I posted has more in depth knowledge about booting than any I've seen being on the web for quite a long time. If that makes it "professional" rather than "consumer" then I don't really care.

Consumer is the average multi-boot user we serve here in these Consumer tech forums - who I believe would be in way over their head to even browse that site, as was I.

The methods that have survived the three years here are almost all automated. As soon as we get into heavy code with the average user we either lose them or they lose their system, as just happened again the other day when automated methods were ignored and code-proffering stretched on for pages until Win7 was no longer even salvageable.

I am only interested in what works - day-in, day-out, every time - here where the largest number of consumers are served and on some days we deal with a dozen or more boot issues.

Nothing to do with offense. I just didn't understand the post. If this site wasn't top tier I wouldn't spend all the time I do here. Yeah the boot specialty site is highly technical. But there are people on the forums to break stuff down to be understood. It's just another resource that many aren't aware of. If I have a multi-boot problem it's been a long time for me so I would definitely ask you to help me out.

Or is it because I haven't marked C partition as active explicitly (donno if its active or not currently) but tried to restore bootmgr and so it failed ?
That's the problem. If you want to fix the bootmgr, you need an active partition. With the bootable CD (or USB stick) of Partition Wizard, that is easy to do.

Finalllllllllllllllllllllllly, its fixed Many Many thanks guys. Thanks whs, gregrocket . It works! Here is what worked

1)Initially I tried to fix from system repair . It didnt work
2)Then I followed the solution suggested. Marked C partition as active and then
3)Tried system repair again. It worked!

So the imp thing I missed here is marking C partition active And the easiest way to do this is Partition - Mark as Active

And then do system repair normally

Thanks again for your help. You saved me and actually I learned a lot from this as well

Hi,

That's great news, but you should credit SevenForums in your blog for this - it's the professional thing to do.

Your link to sevenforums in your valuable resources section is broken.

Regards,
Golden
