Windows 7: Bootmgr missing, problem seems unique from other cases

Bootmgr missing, problem seems unique from other cases

Hello,

I just did a clean install of Windows 7 on my computer, after formatting my hard-drive containing Vista. The installation process ran smoothly and Windows 7 booted up (from the install) just fine.

But as soon as I restarted my computer, I got the bootmgr missing error. I have tried the fixes I found, running through a repair and using the cmd commands (/fixmbr /fixboot /rebuildbdc) but none of those are working.

I have searched for answers, but where my problem seems unique is that 7 boots up just fine from the install, but then wont restart.

Some information that might be pertinent.
I do have a second hard drive for backing up files when I do the install, but at no point do I touch that hard drive. Could it be that I need to do the install with that hard drive disconnected?

I am not trying to run a dual-boot. I simply formatted the HD and went for a clean install.

The problem has happened both times I installed Windows 7.

If I neglected to find an already posted answer for this same problem, I apologize. Please link me the post and I'll let you know if it works.

Thanks.

Got it working, had to disconnect the secondary drive and do the install.

You may have just set the wrong drive to boot after going back into bios following the initial install.
