Hi, I am faced with a very serious problem and I'm starting to get really desperate.
I have an SSD with Windows 7 and Xubuntu dual boot with GRUB boot menu,
and two internal laptop hdds that I use for data, such as music, photos, software projects etc...
I recently changed some of the drive letters for the two internal laptop hdds, but NOT my SSD ( C: drive )
but now I get the "BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" message.
First thing I did was insert my recovery disk ( same as my installation disk for win 7 ) and attempted to rebuild my bcd.
And so I did the usual good stuff:
I also had to rename/delete my old BCD store in order to recreate it.
I made sure that the relevant partitions are active, ran the commands, but still the problem persists.
I also noticed that my Drive letters changed. A partition on one of the laptop HDDS, which as E:\, became C:\ and my C:\ drive became E:\
So i unlugged all my hdds except for my SSD where my windows is installed, and repeated the whole process.
But no luck ...
I've been at this for hours, but yet nothing.
Even my Recovery disc is going bananas now. When I select the Windows OS and attempt to recover its says the Windows Recovery is not compatible with this installation.
I've also looked around in my C:\ drive to look for the BOOTMGR file. But its nowhere. Probably because its beyond hidden. I tried this:
in C:\, C:\windows, C:\windows\boot etc..
Any help would be tremendously appreciated !!
