Windows 7: I have two Win 7 Partition and one won't boot correctly?

I have two Win 7 Partition and one won't boot correctly?

Hi,

Here's more info on my current problem: So I have the original Win 7 Partition as C:/ and through the imagex tool provided and me booting into a second hard drive, I was able to create an image of that and uploaded to a network drive. Then I put that back on the C: partition and applied the image I've created it using imagex on a new and second partition called D:.

I went through bcd and edited so it points to the D:/ and it boots but the strange thing is that when it does boot, the D:/ partition does not become the Local Disk (C and I cannot uninstall programs in it.

Funny thing is that there is an older Win 7 image that can be applied does so correctly and it becomes the local disk when loaded. This image was created by my boss said it had to do edit the registry but he's forgotten about it and now I wonder if anyone knows a way to make the D: into the local disk when I select at Windows Boot Manager.

Thanks,

Post a screen print of Disk Management with all info shown using these instructions:
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums

I've never had the issue you have and never used the imagex tool.
The DM screen print might help someone else help you.

I use Macrium Reflect for backup images and when i restore an image i set MR to "don't assign a drive letter".

Boot into your original win 7. Select the partition letter of the other installation (D).

Click FIX.
