Bootmgr is missing, can't boot, can't repair
As title states, my bootmgr was deleted when I was formatting my original hard drive to remove the windows vista from it and use the drive as a storage drive. I already have Windows 7 64bit installed on my new SSD hard drive, and both hard drives are plugged in.
I think I accidentally deleted it when I seen this small 9 GB drive while in the formatting screen. I decided to erase it thinking it might free up some internal space and speed the computer up or something. Obviously my thoughts were wrong and I deleted key internal stuff.
I followed a lot of the stuff from this post... Boot Mgr missing and unable to repair ... But nothing seems to work.
Using bootrec.exe /fixmbr and bootrec.exe /fixboot says it was successful, but after restarting it turns out not. I also did those commands and ran the repair several times, nothing has worked.
This is the information I got from this..
SELECT DISK 0 (confirm this is Windows 7 disk#)
DISKPART Microsoft DiskPart version 6.1.7601 Copyright <c> 1999-2008 Microsoft Corporation.

Would also like to mention, for some reason my SSD hard drive is not showing up on this list. It should show up as 446GB. [EDIT] I Figured out why, the power for the drive wasn't plugged in. I plugged it in and retried all the steps, still no go.
