Windows 7: Windows 7 not booting without a USB

1 Week Ago   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

Hi Goldendog, so iv only been using 1 USB which has Windows 7 on it, i havent tried with a different USB yet.
@Barman58 when i go into the BIOs i only hsve the HDD and USB as options to boot from.

I then select the HDD as first boot however still get the bootmgr is missing message.

I have now got the idea of cloning the System Reserved partition into the 100mb partition iv made. Both partitions are on Disk 0, im assuming by doing this Windows should boot.

Either that or im going to copy the USB with its boot files straight into that partition and see if it works.

Il activate that partition, also when i bring up the Dir \a [system reserved partition drive letter:] i can see the boot files.

Will try attach pictures so you guys can see what im seeing.

But do believe its this iSSD thing where Windows is dropping the bootfiles rhen not being able to access it.
