Windows 7: Lost Boot Manager

27 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 x64 RTM
Lost Boot Manager

I installed Vista, then Windows 7, making a dual boot.
Boot files were held in Vista.
Both OS's were on the same physical drive, but 2 partitions, 50gb each.

I didnt need vista anymore, so i used Paragon partition software to remove the Vista partition, and make extend the Windows 7 partition to 100Gb.

Now i get NTLDR not found upon boot.
I have set the Windows 7 partition as ctive, tried to repair mbr and bcd, and it succeeds, but still get the error.

I have OSX installed to my 2nd drive, so can boot Windows through its bootloader.

In msconfig there are 0 OS' listed in boot tab. And BCD editor cannot make the BCD registry.

How can i get the Windows 7 bootloader back?
