10 step FIX Windows 7 [all versions]

1.) Boot from "WINDOWS 7" DVD;
2.) Select "Repair computer";
3.) Select "Cancel" to exit the repair wizard;
4.) You will now get a screen which displays 'command prompt','system restore','memory diagnostics',etc......
5.) Select "command prompt";
6.) Type your "DVD-DRIVE LETTER" in command prompt, press ENTER;
7.) Now if your Windows 7 is installed in C drive, type "copy bootmgr c:\" without codes, press ENTER;
8.) After successful copy type "exit" without codes, press ENTER;
9.) Reboot computer;
10.) Select "start windows normally";
I get a "Access is Denied o file<s> copied.

After it boots to the Windows 7 screen and you click repair your computer, does it show an operating system installed?

Note: You have no OS to select? Solution select install instead of repair and it will detect your drive, select cancel and go back to the repair section, your OS will show up now.

As I said, did I somehow by mistake convert it to a Fat32 & that is why it is not showing up?
