Diskpart in post 8 in this thread shows your C partition as "RAW".

Not good.

As long as C is "RAW", I don't think you are going to boot Windows or be able to use Disk Management.

I assume this is an HP computer with one hard drive containing multiple partitions?

Not sure

Thanks you for your reply, as you can see I don't understand much about computers is a hard drive an OS? If it is one hard drive and there is no hope is ok I was just wondering if any thing could be done for it, you see I saw 2 local disks is that it? see I cannot tell, I know I made this happened by messing with diskpart forget about bootmanager missing...what I was looking for is how to put C: back to it's original place I will give you the picture I talk about tomorrow, but I know I moved them by going to diskpart and activating what I should not, felt like God or something activating stuff lol I don't know, my reasoning is if I try to do any thing to it like fixing boot from scratch it will not do it in right drive......is hard to explain C: in winRE when I load drives says in place of another letter you see it in System Restore not local disk......

Thank you so much for your reply I know is confusing but I will try to post picture tomorrow .

Problem solved :)

Thank you all for your time and care Solution:

Take disk out
Unplug your computer for about 1 hour.

This is what happened .............My husband's comp froze and gave it to me he had a usb overload thing... he kicked his front usb port my accident and 2 pins were touching each other................fixed.............I needed the disk according to me and the power cord........ today I was going to send that pict I was talking about, when I got to it was back in place so I don't know......

That may work for others hopefully....

Thank you to all again and whs.....I will try no to touch computers again, after I fix my raw C: lol .

Have a great day! and thanks seven forums.
