Windows 7: BOOTMGR is on wrong HDD / System Repair disk not compatible

Hello there,


What I would do is perform a clean install of windows in the new hard drive partiton. Then make a ghost image of the opertating system you wish to copy of using ghost 11.5.1xxx. Then Boom you will have a full bootable image of your operating system, all of it's programs on you new HDD.


There are plenty of instructions online on how to do this but if you need further assitance just ask. I have done this many of times when setting up office computers so they are all an exact recplica of each other and it works great. Or if an office computer goes down and we want it set up with a fresh install with all drivers and programs already to go.

Oh Hello, I expected we were all done.
I am constantly overwhelmed by the great degree of fine support offered here. How does one repay the service?

> @RoyReddy : You are having only one OS on this multi disk PC, isn't it ? If yes, Its time to follow Sir samuria & other seniors.
Yes. One OS. Happy to report = Working well. Pleased to do as the seniors wisdom suggests.

> 1. Make sure that the OS disk is always disk 0. Swap the cables & make it sure.
Done! I did this during the repair and when I disconnected the other drives. Zero it is

> 2. Leave active partition only on the OS disk and Mark other active partitions as Inactive . If command line is not your cup of tea, you may use good 3rd party partitioning software such as DiskGenius .
Done!
CMD is fine with me. I am old enough to remember the Command Line and Windows v1. I was working at Commodore in Canada when we were introducing their PC Clone and then the Amiga. Frightening no?

> 3. Also learn to launch "One Time Boot Menu", It would be of great help. On Asus, its normally F8 or esc key.
Right On that works and I will keep it in mind for future.

> These steps will keep you & your system free from problems & confusions.
Terrific. These are very pleasant thoughts!

> Thanks & Regards. ...

Hhhmm
this is a solid idea. Thank you for the suggestion. @qwertyovbfd
New Harddrives are low-cost. I may even have one.

It sounds like what I was trying to achieve when I created my BootMgr Issue many months ago.
