Hi, I'm using Windows7, dual boot with Linux Ubuntu 10.04, Recently, I installed another OS (Linux Mint). Before installing this Mint, I deleted primary partition (sda1) and created entended partition from the earlier primary partition sda1. Since that, I cannot boot into my Windows7 anymore (received error message something like "no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key"), but I've no problem in booting into both Linux Ubuntu and Mint.
I've tried a few things, but seems like the luck is not with me. Below are the things that I've tried:
1. Boot Recovery Disc Windows7 and done the Repair Startup many times (more than 5 times), still no luck.
2. Boot Recovery Disc Windows7 and chose Command Prompt to use:
Bootrec /scanos - The Windows is listed.
Bootrec /fixboot - No element found,
Bootrec /fixmbr - Completed succesfully.
3. Boot Recovery Disc Windows7 and chose Command Prompt to use Diskpart, everything seems okay for the list disk, select disk, list partiton, select partion, except the "active" command. I've been prompted with something like "Virtual Disk Service Error: the specified partition type is not valid for this operation".
I've installed back grub for me to log in into Linux Ubuntu/Mint. From Linux Gparted, I can see this windows partition is flagged as boot. Currently, I've unplugged the other 320 GB hard disk and only use one 320 GB hard disk for all the OS above. I've read a few threads with similar issues, but I think it's time for me to open a new thread for my problem. Please help, I want to log in into my Windows7. Thank you in advance.
