Windows 7: Bootmgr is missing, can't boot, can't repair

09 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64bit
Bootmgr is missing, can't boot, can't repair

As title states, my bootmgr was deleted when I was formatting my original hard drive to remove the windows vista from it and use the drive as a storage drive. I already have Windows 7 64bit installed on my new SSD hard drive, and both hard drives are plugged in.

I think I accidentally deleted it when I seen this small 9 GB drive while in the formatting screen. I decided to erase it thinking it might free up some internal space and speed the computer up or something. Obviously my thoughts were wrong and I deleted key internal stuff.

I followed a lot of the stuff from this post... Boot Mgr missing and unable to repair ... But nothing seems to work.

Using bootrec.exe /fixmbr and bootrec.exe /fixboot says it was successful, but after restarting it turns out not. I also did those commands and ran the repair several times, nothing has worked.

This is the information I got from this..
SELECT DISK 0 (confirm this is Windows 7 disk#)

Volume 3          E        NTFS     Partition  9    GB    Healthy     Hidden
I have absolutely no idea what to do here. Completely stuck, and need help ASAP please.

Would also like to mention, for some reason my SSD hard drive is not showing up on this list. It should show up as 446GB. [EDIT] I Figured out why, the power for the drive wasn't plugged in. I plugged it in and retried all the steps, still no go.
