boot mgr is missing

Hi ! I've divided my disk into partitions and accidentally removed boot loader of windows and now I get "boot mgr is missing", so I cant load my windows I have a disk and put boot order in BIOS but it still does not give me an opportunity to install windows, so I have only openSUSE right now, and 2 partitions of windows with C: and D: disks. How to restore this bootloader or at least make install windows 7?

Mark the WIn7 partition Active if it's Primary - if Logical you'll have to convert it first with free Partition Wizard bootable CD. Then boot the WIn7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD to run Startup Repair 3 Separate Times to write the System boot files to Win7 partition and start it.

If you have further probs, post back a camera snap of PW CD drive map with listings.

The reason I asked what the OP did was to get more info.
If by chance you have a system reserved partition (small 100 MB partition without a letter assigned) then you should ensure it and not the Windows 7 partition is marked active and run Repair x3. Otherwise mark the Windows 7 active and run Repair x3.
