Boot Manager missing

okay, so on an computer I had vista installed, and wanted to install 7. So I created an 100 GiB partition on my hdd, and shrunk the vista installation.

Later I booted in 7 and copied all the files I needed to 7. Afterwards I deleted the vista partition, but now I cant boot into 7, It says boot mngr missing. SO I tried the windows 7 repair feature on the DVD, after about 8 tries it still won't fix it. The repair manager says missing system partition was fixed, but I still get the missing Boot Mngr?

Help please.

I dont know because I cant boot into windows 7. Unless there is a way I can find out with the CMD prompt on my Windows 7 DVD?

Create the bootable CD of this program (see on the left side of the webpage). Then boot from that CD and you will see all your disks/partitions and can change attributes if necessary.

Actualy I realized that during the Repair operation I had my USB drive plunged in and I unplugged it and it repaired successfully.

Good deal. The bootable PW CD you should get anyhow. One of the best tools in my toolbox.

Hello mate, good to see you got it sorted.



If ever there's a need in future, you can get the details of a partition by booting to diskpart, have a look at the snip below for an outline of the process.
