I figured it out. In both cases the link was to my local testing server, even though in the first post the text included the www and com parts. Here is the REAL link:

By doesn't work, do you mean says that you don't have the hidden partition?

Can you download the VolumeInfo tool (also on the same page), run it, and send me the results? The easiest way is in a console you can do "VolumeInfo.exe > info.txt" (without quotes) in a command line. Then info.txt will contain all the information. Hopefully its just my program being too particular.

That must of been the current directory in the command window. What all that information tells me though is that your hidden partition is hidden even better. Which is weird since my default install of Windows 7 had it only kinda hidden. I will have to come up with more clever tricks... maybe.

I would like you to try one more thing. Can you run bcdedit from an elevated console and tell me what device is used for the Boot Manager?

Lastly, the problem with the graphic / my program is that it has a different horizontal and vertical resolution than the "default". I will make my program smarter.

When you run bcdedit, one of the groups should be "Windows Boot Manager" and one of its values should be device. What value is it?

Good news, your bootmgr doesn't use the hidden partition! Probably 'fixed' by the Chameleon you installed. So nothing to worry about.
