Windows 7: Recovery disk says Repair Windows Boot Manager but OS is booting fine

Recovery disk says Repair Windows Boot Manager but OS is booting fine

I made a recovery/repair DVD and booted up from it. It located my Windows OS on drive C:. Then it gave me a strange menu: Recovery disk Repair Windows Boot Manager Add startup option: Windows Recovery Environment (repaired) These were my only choices. I could not get to the Recovery Console or other menu without accepting the repair. Right now, nothing is broken. Windows boots normally every day. I am afraid if I let the new disk make a "repair," it may really give me a problem. What to do? Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. I had not made a repair disk before because I had installed Acronis backup, which prevented it. It was only yesterday that I found the registry edits needed after uninstalling Acronis so that Windows Backup would run.

I wouldn't be afraid of running an offered Repair, and would probably after reboot go back to run a couple more Startup Repairs to see if it finds anything else. It isn't going to harm anything and may find more to correct as it already has.

You can also post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image which will tell us if it's correctly configured.
