Hi Mickrg123,

That's interesting.

You would normally expect the Win 7 partition to show as C and the Vista partition to be invisible to you when you boot into Win7.

You would then usually go into Disk Management and assign a letter to Vista in order to be able to see it when booted into 7.

Once you have done that, bcdedit would be expected to show Bootmgr ( the first entry ) as being on the same partition as Vista.

Go to Disk Management and post a jpeg screenshot of it, like this :

To get to Disk Management, right click Computer on the start menu >Manage - wait a few secs. for it to appear> double click Disk Management in the left pane.

Hope it helps

Hi Mickrg123,

Glad to see easybcd sorted it out.

Curious as to how that happened in the first place. Did you clean install 7 from a dvd to another partition you had created ?

Thanks
