I just tried to dual boot between PC-BSD and Windows 7, but it seems like Windows 7 didn't like that PC-BSD touches the MBR.
Windows was installed first and was working great for a few months now. I had a 15G free space at the end of the drive so I can install PC-BSD. There is an option when you install it if you want to install a boot manager (which used to work great with Windows XP). In fact, the boot manager works OK: it boots Pc-BSD and "start to boot" Windows 7.
The problem is that Windows is giving me the classic 0xc000000e error. I tried this : MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record
It didn't change anything. I even adapted the commands to specify the partition but it didn't work. My Windows 7 installation isn't even showing in the list of detected installation. The list is empty. I tried to use the "startup repair" option, but it gives an error which is kind of logic since it doesn't detect my Windows 7.
I read that I could use EasyBCD from within Windows 7 to add Pc-BSD to the Windows boot menu. That's what I would like to try, but Windows is refusing to start. I tried to use GAG as an alternative boot manager, but I get the same Windows error. So the problem is really with Windows, not the boot manager.
When "restoring" the MBR, it deleted the PC-BSD boot manager. That should be OK, but now it boots straight to PC-BSD
So, my question is: how can I make my Windows 7 boot up? I don't care about PC-BSD at the moment. I'll try EasyBCD once Windows 7 is back on track but I don't know what else to try...
Thanks in advance for your help
