Windows 7: Non-system Disk error

25 Oct 2009   #1

Dual Boot Windows 7 Build 7600 RTM 32-bit and Ubuntu Linux
Non-system Disk error

I recently tried to install a mac osx on my computer that was currently running windows 7. I created a separate partition on my 320GB hard drive that was unallocated space until I partitioned it. After I installed it, when I tried booting into that hard drive, I got the non-system disk error. I went back into the mac osx install disk and erased the osx installation. I then put in the windows 7 installation disk and clicked repair my system. It searched for startup errors and found that the Boot Manager was missing or corrupt. Is there any way I can reinstall the Boot Manager without reinstalling all of Windows 7? I ran the startup repair a few times until it could not find any problems. Now it says: Disk Error. Press any key to restart.

You may have to perform the startup repair multiple times...

It should be able to restore your MBR after OSX removed it

Didn't read it are getting this error PostBIOS correct? If so...a clean install/format will be necessary

If someone knows otherwise than please post!
