    I take it that's from booting the recovery DVD? I would still go with running


    bcdboot C:\windows /s C:


    The only other thing you may have to do after that is make C:\ the active partition if its not already.
    C:\Windows\system32>bcdboot C:\windows /s C:
    Boot files successfully created.
    C:\Windows\system32>

    will reboot and be right back.-ok back now I have a FAKE CD installed.

    some how this D:\ which I can not find in diskmgnt, must be the "
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume3".
    unhide everything... I can not find any bcd entries like I did when it was N:
    if you click d: it says place a CD... but there is no way... tested all CD-DVD drives and it does not accept for D:
    ------------------------
    No I'm boot w/o a recovery DVD, I have only 1 OS installed.
    I have two options on boot. Windows 7 Ultimate and #2 is Recovery

    What did you do to get ?

    Windows Boot Manager
    --------------------
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume3
    path \bootmgr

    {7800cce5-7c49-11de-bc70-801ac4a4f209}
    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}

    also what did you do to add the identifier {7800ccd4-7c49-11de-bc70-801ac4a4f209} ?

    Could you post a screenshot of your disk configuration from Disk Management please. Also can you go into DISKPART from a command prompt and type:

    DISKPART
    then 'list volume'

    Hi Snuffy,

    You will notice the 7 partition is not marked Active.

    The 5.74gb partition is the one on that HD marked active.


    That {7800ccd4-7c49-11de-bc70-801ac4a4f209} is the winre recovery that should start up automatically if needed ( it only works if bootmgr is functioning properly ).

    It is not normally displayed by bcdedit command, only by the addition of /enum all /v.

    In your case, when you ran the repair from the dvd, it put the entry back in - this time it shows up with other (recovered) entries at the regular bcdedit command.

    You must have the 7 partition marked Active for the repairs I posted earler to be effective.

    In Disk Management, right click the 7 partition and select Mark as Active.

    If the copying of bootmgr and the Boot folder from F to C and the bcdedit /export C:\Boot\bcd were successful - the only thing you need to do now is mark the 7 partition Active.

    Give it a try and see.:)

    Ah, yes - the 7 on the other partition fooled me.

    That is curious - if the 7 partition is Active, and it is the first HD in Bios boot order ( you unplugged the others to make sure ) - hard to say why it is not now the system partition.

    What happens if you try to boot with only the Disk 0 attached?

    If i unplug Disk 1 then I can not boot. so should I unplug and then ?
    try Restore w/ DVD?

    I've done so many thing in the past week to try and fix this... I forget all that i have tried.

    Disk 1 the small partition does not want to be deleted... I'd like to move into a nother part.
    not sure when that showed up.

    The dvd should be able to fix it - if that is the only HD attached.

    Startup repair should do the job.

    Give it a go.

    Did you detach the other HD'S when you tried startup repair before?

    Will unplug all other HDDs only 1 HDD Disk 0 and 2 DVD's.
    usually takes about 1hour to get back. unless restore works.
