Sorry, I should have made it clear; I need to see your Windows 7 drive. I'm wondering if Windows 7 is installed on a Logical partition.

the only way my pc boots is if all i have connected is the XP drive....
I have no idea what happened

It has been working for a few days...one OS on each HDD

then i decided to boot it without the XP HDD plugged in and it stops working permanently

Plug the XP HDD in and try the repair on Seven again, if that works we can go from there.

Did you try this?


Yes....same result...

The repair to 7 with both HDDs plugged in at the same time didn't work?

Make sure Windows 7 is on a Primary partition. If it is, boot up the repair disc and open a command prompt (while the XP drive is disconnected).

bootrec /fixboot

bootrec/ fixmbr

bootrec /rebuildbcd


BOOTSECT /NT60

That should do it.
