missing operatin system...

Loading operating system
Mising operating system...

....is what I am getting after this:

I have 2 internal hdd's, One with OSX Lion (hackingtosh) and the other with Windows 7 which is where my DAW is.

From the Windows side, I erased and formatted the OSX lion Hdd (The reason why is in this thread: 2 Windows installations. One for Internet usage.)
the computer was booting to OSX by default unless you hit the tab key at some point and choose windows 7.

I was expecting that when I erase OSX, the computer would boot to Windows 7 automatically..

Now I am getting that message, and i need to work..

Please help, how can i fix this quick..
The windows 7 cd that I have says: this version is not copatible........! I was trying to fix the startup problem...

Thanks a lot

Download the Windows 7 Home Premium X64 iso file from here: Windows 7 Direct Download Links

You want this one:
Attachment 342571

Burn a DVD using ImgBurn or create a install USB flash drive using Rufus.
Boot the install media and run Startup Repair up to 3 times, should fix the problem.

You must set the WIn7 drive as hard drive to boot first in BIOS setup, which may be more easily accomplished by swapping data cables from the old boot drive. Then see if it will boot because the boot files are already on the Win7 drive.

If not confirm that the 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred if you have it) or C is Partition Marked Active

and then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts and holds the System Active flags.

Download Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1 English Official ISO download

Burn to DVD or flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool - unless you have a UEFI BIOS then use UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows .

Then do the steps I gave you above, starting with setting the Win7 drive to boot first in BIOS setup to see if it will boot outright because it already has its boot files but just wasn't set first to boot.

If not then do the other steps I gave you.

Most likely there no problem at all with win7. Do the shift+f10 trick to enter command prompt Command Prompt at Startup

then:
Code:
dir c:\users
dir d:\users
dir e:\users
Which of the 3 displays you username?
Code:
dir/a  c:\boot\bcd
dir/a  d:\boot\bcd
dir/a  e:\boot\bcd
Where is bcd file?

Code:
bootsect /nt60  c:  /force  /mbr

Not repeatedly. Just do what's written in #6. And post results. Is Macintosh disk still connected? Better disconnect it while testing (if possible)
