Windows 7: No Bootmgr

17 Jan 2014   #11

For the C partition to boot itself it must be marked System Active, but we cannot see that because the most important information is not in the picture..

In some Partition Managers the System and Boot flags are used interchangeably, but one must still appear for the partition to be bootable. In DIsk Mgmt boot only means the partition currently booted.

Unplug all other HD's, confirm the Win7 is Partition Marked Active and then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times. This will repair or rewrite the System boot files so Win7 can boot.

Report back any error messages and exactly what happens.

Hmm, that does not tell me anything. I needed the text section above to see which partition is the active partition - in AOMEI they call it the System Partition. Like this:

Hi WHS,

I have run AOMEI disk again and indeed, it is showing me [SYSTEM]. I can take another photo if you like to verify that? I have a query over mounting? This is what it says :

\Device\HarddiskVolume1
Mount point: \\?Volume{de3d05c7-80f9-11e3-82ca-806e6f6e6963}\

I guess the"?" before volume caught my eye?

We've never used Aoemei here so I don't know why it was advised since we've helped tens of thousands of others with similar problems using Partition Wizard which has no history of failing on critical partitioning operations when using the boot CD - while all others except DIsk Mgmt do.

What's important is that all other disks are unplugged, C is Partition Marked Active,
and then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times so if you'll do that then it almost always suffices.

WHS - There is only one partition visible, C:\ and it is, as you highlighted in red, [SYSTEM].

Gregrocker - OK, I will get Partition Wizard and do system repair 3 times, as you suggest. I have done it multiple times already on other boot ups.

Greg, I recommend AOMEI now since it has more function than Partition Wizard. Else it is very similar to PW. Have to go with the times.

OP, do the 3 time system repair as Greg recommended. That should fix the problem since C is marked as 'System"

System means holding the System boot files and Boot means presently booted in Disk Mgmt, but means opposite in most Partition Managers. So it gets confusing if they all have a different one.

What functions does Aoemi offer that PW doesn't?

I've heard of it, think Si mentioned it.
