to repeat, try this first! use your win 7 install disc - the same principles apply

you may have to go right down to the 'nuclear holocaust' section - it's a bit hairy, but at least you may get your os back without having to install xp first...

OK I needed that info..
Then that x:\ drive is a temp location in memory(RAM) that contains that contain temp setup files. Just insert your windows 7 DVD, select the language then click recovery option and then click the first option that comes on the page (that is startup repair option). And your windows will load without any problem..

after doing the holocaust repair and failing numeorus number of times i decided to do what you said and it worked.

I also now have windows 7 installed on 2 partitions X and E and want to get rid of the one on X same hard drive 2 partitions. Can i remove and format X or will the boot get corrupt again. Whats the safest way to remove the windows 7 on X and make sure the boot is saved on E and doesn't get corrupt or worse deleted. Btw X drive is primary...

removing 1 of 2 window 7 os's from 2 partitions

information on the drives taken from disk management:

X: HEALTHY (SYSTEM,ACTIVE,PRIMARY PARTITION)
E: HEALTHY (BOOT, PAGE FILE, CRASH DUMP, LOGICAL DRIVE)

i want to move E as my primary and the main system os. Then i want to remove X.

I tried paragon partition and changed E to primary partition again it asked to restart. Then it restarted to make the changes and as it was it asked Boot Sector Write! Virus: Continue:Y/N?

then it froze

so i had to repair windows again using the installation dvd. Any idea on how to remove X: . As also having a OS on the X drive is a not a good idea as windows uses this when installing.

You are not getting it. windows 7 is not installed on 2 partitions. the X:\ partition contains the basic boot files and E:\ contains the windows file.

If you delete or format any of this two drives the windows will crash again.
And you cannot change a logical partition without removing that partition which will also delete all your files inside it..
