You have a system reserved partition marked active already, if you unplug F, windows SHOULD boot.
Out of curiosity, why i install windows 7 in C:\, but windows put the bootmgr in F:\, and

is that system reserved partition also have the bootmgr file?
Cause you had more then one hard drive plugged in while you were installing Windows

Ya, but that still doesn`t explain it as he already had a SR partition.

Only Bill Gates knows for sure.

If you didn`t have the other drives plugged in when you installed windows, you would not have this problem.
Anyway thanks, really a big help for me.

Let`s get 1 thing done at a time here. Please proceed with marking F inactive, unplugging Disk 1 and 2 and getting windows to boot. Let us know your results when you get back online.

In fact, don`t even mess with F until you get C booting on it`s own.

Let`s get this done already. 30 posts and you haven`t made any progress.
