bootmanager and bootmenu are on ACTIVE partition. Only a PRIMARY partition can be ACTIVE.
When system powers on it loads the MBR boot code from sector 0 on disk and executes it. It searches an ACTIVE partition and jumps to its bootsector.

I am so confused as to whats going....

i know for a fact exactly what caused all these problems- modifying the logon folder- though i cant remember where its located or where to start as its been several months since i did what i did...


and just to verify, my system is NOT booting off the SSD? correct?

bootmgr and bootmenu are on disk0 "system reserved". win7 is on disk 0 ( C drive) as well. Disk 0 is 59Gb. Is that SSD?
disk 1 is about 3TB
disk 2 is about 1TB

So it must be SSD. See #6
