Marked wrong drive as active need help
So I did something really stupid and believe when I was looking around that I marked both drives as active and it moved my secondary drive to the front in the space as disk 0 and moved the windows drive to disk 1 and thanks it is supposed to boot from the wrong drive. I have no windows 7 recovery disk at hand. So when it tries to boot it says something along the lines of can't find BOOTMGR.
What do I need to do to get my system up and running, and how do I unmark the drive as active? Please I appreciate any help.

Physically disconnect the secondary HD.
Make the Windows 7 HD, disk0 & first HD boot in BIOS.Also connected to the first Sata port on the MOBO.
You may need to do a startup repair:
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
When Windows is booting OK, Reconnect the other secondary HD, as Disk1.
If you have not made your Startup Repair
System Repair Disc - Create
Do you have a mate with Windows 7 of the same bit version 32 or 64 & CD/DVD RW Drive, how could burn one off.
