In EasyBCD, click the 'Manage Bootloader' button,

Make sure under 'Backup and Restore Bootloader Settings', in the File: box your G: partition is listed, if not browse to it.

Under 'Bootloader Installation Options', make sure the 'Reinstall the Vista Bootloader' is ticked,

Click 'Write MBR'

Check in the Disk Management, if the G partition has the 'System' tag.

You will need to keep the G drive letter for 7 - that is fine.

Boot into 7

Open elevated cmd, type: ( press enter after each command)

Diskpart

sel vol c

inact

exi

close cmd prompt.

Make the ssd first in bios boot order .

Run startup repair.

i have no access to the boot folder on the 7 drive. I have attempted to change folder from read only but access denied, attempted to change access permissions but greyed out. Attempted to run bsd as admin attempted to run bsd from cmd running as admin

tried all this in safe mode to.

Why are you trying to get access to the Boot folder ?

What did you intend to do in there?

Leave it alone if I were you.

If you are already in7 - then just continue with the command as in my previous post.

Run the elevated cmd prompt, start button, right click Command Prompt, Run as Administrator.

Follow SIW2s instructions in the previous post.

He is our MBR expert and is very good at this.

He always gets it fixed.

You need to make sure C is NOT active.

Make sure G is active.

You need to run startup repair 3 times - it only fixes one thing at a time.
