Windows 7
no booting after i fixed no bootmrg. I really need help!!!

Hello everyone i really need help on this one.

so, i had multiple systems (3) on my computer but mainly 1 i use everyday, so i formated the two partitions with the systems i dont need after a reeboot (like i ecpected) i had a bootmbr missing error. So i went and tryed using the repair function of the dvd but that dident work. So i installed a complete new system on one of the new partitions (i left the old one allown), after i installed the new system i booted up and installed easy bcd and added my old partition to my boot manager, but after i boot up I can see the boot menu and select the old system i want to start up from but it brings an error and tells me to enter the dvd and repair the system. I am so lost on this. why istent it just taking the files and booting? what did i do wrong? i would really apprechiate help! Thanks everyone!

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk management drive map with listings, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu. Tell us what is on each partition.

You needed to make sure the Win7 you wish to keep is marked System Active before deleting OS's which may hold the System boot files. To do this you mark the keeper Active then boot then boot the DVd or Repair CD to Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
