Also when i look at the discs in Computer management it says that C: (the drive i installed 7 on) is healthy (Boot,page file,active crash dump and primary partition)
While D: (storage) says System,active and primary partition
My point being that are they both supposed to say primary partition?
I don't know it could be completely irrelevant just seemed a bit weird....
Grateful for help!
Hi and welcome to sevenforums
Did you upgrade? Win 7 usually installs all of the system, boot, page, crash dump, and primary on one partition if there is an older OS like XP, or vista and you upgrade it puts a system folder in the old OS so you can dual boot.
The way to repair it is to use bcdedit (built in win 7) and edit the boot loader files. There is an excellent tutorial on using bcdedit in the tut section here on seven forums. Its not rocket science but I do recommend reading it first.
